Difficult to beat the view with Mount Kilimanjaro as a background on your pictures - although the park can be very crowded at times, it is enough to choose your area right to enjoy the views in relative calm.

Amboseli is a bit more rustic and you won't see all that one does at the Maasai Mara but you cant beat getting that photo of elephants walking in front of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

breathtaking

when we arrived at amboseli it was pretty cloudy as it had been raining a lot recently. but once checked in at sentrin by the evening when the sun was setting. the clouds cleared up and in front of us was mt kilimanjaro in its full glory which was simply breathtaking. The park itself is very clear and open which was brilliant as to being able to see the whole mt kilomanjaro edge to edge, which for me was what going to amboseli was about.

Amboseli: An Absolutely Awesome Safari Destination
Overall rating
5/5

Amboseli was the first destination on our safari. What an awesome introduction to African wildlife! Even before we got there we saw groups of hippopotamus, elephants, crowned cranes, many sorts of antelope, wildebeest, and many other animals and birds. We stayed at the Oltukai Lodge, from which many elephants, in particular, were seen. On our first outing, there were lions, hyenas, flamingos and many other water birds, wildebeest and zebras, and many other antelope and birds. It was beyond our wildest dreams. We had thought maybe we might get to see an elephant, and probably some antelope. The reality was so much more stunning than our preconceptions that it was mind-blowing. We were able to see and obtain excellent photographs of the "big five". It was truly the trip of a lifetime. I am so glad we went!

One of the particularly nice things was the weather. I don't think it was above 73 degF or below 67 degF at any time during the trip. Most amazing of all was the lack of bugs. We had spent hundreds of dollars on mosquito-proof clothing, sprays, shots, etc. There wasn't a single mosquito. All in all, it was a majestically fine trip. I recommend it highly.

With a backdrop of Mt. Kiliminjaro you just can't go wrong!
