Amboseli National Park is one of Kenya’s most prevalent parks on account of the astonishing view it exhibits of nearby Mount Kilimanjaro, the world’s highest freestanding mountain. If you travel to Amboseli National Park, be sure of finding flocks of elephants with the unforgettable views of Kilimanjaro in the background! Amboseli is one of the smaller game parks in Kenya and the vegetation ensures that the animals are easy to spot. Lions can easily be found and can occasionally be watched stalking their prey. Being very accessible, Amboseli National Park forms a favorite part of many of our travel itineraries. Buffaloes, zebras, giraffes, gazelles and other plains game are plentiful in the park and hippos live in the open waters and swamp channels. The elephants found here are surprisingly relaxed around safari vehicles; they were largely unaffected by ivory poaching and have some of the largest tusks.
See how streams flow from Kilimanjaro surface in the centre of Amboseli, creating swamps that attract and support a rich vicissitude of wild animals and birds.
