Amboseli

A land of elephant at the foot of Kilimanjaro

Situated in the southwest of Kenya the Amboseli National Park is the second most visited national park in Kenya. With its views of Mt. Kilimanjaro and long dry months of superb wildlife watching when great herds of elephant are drawn to the swamps and remaining waterholes, Amboseli is one of Africa’s most spectacular national parks.

It is no exaggeration to say that Amboseli is one of the best places in the world to get close to elephant, but the park is also home to good numbers of Cape buffalo, impala, lion, cheetah, spotted hyena, Maasai giraffe, zebra, and blue wildebeest; what more could you possibly want? This largely semi-arid region also protects two swamps which are home to 400 species of birds, including water birds, pelican, kingfisher, crake, hammerkop, and 47 types of raptor.
 
Staying on a private conservancy adjoining the national park not only ensures greater privacy for game viewing but also offers ample opportunities for night game drives in search of nocturnal wildlife. If you are feeling energetic, there are also plenty of varied hikes on spectacular nature trails.
