Elephants! Who doesn't love elephants? And lions! And Kilimanjaro's majestic rise above the flat plains. It's one of the most beautiful places you can visit.

Amboseli has an amazing concentration of wildlife
Overall rating

Because so many animals are drawn to the extremely wet areas in an otherwise dry landscape, Amboseli National Park offers amazing opportunities to see wildlife. Elephants, zebra, giraffes, wildebeest, and various antelopes are plentiful and easy to see from safari vans. So are many birds -- we saw ostriches, bustards, and even a secretary bird. The noble Kilimanjaro presides over the classic landscape. While there are quite a few tourists, our guides from Safari Adventures International and our hosts at Kibo Safari Camp made us feel special.

Being a smaller park it does not have much of a bush vibe but offers plenty in term of wildlie, birds and scenic beauty. Kilimanjaro stands tall on clear mornings. Good place for birding enthusiasts, the marsh offers opportunity to spot storks and water birds.

An amazing experience with elephants up close
Overall rating

I came to Amboseli for two reasons, the first was that it was known for its elephants and the second, the view of Kilimanjaro. I was not disappointed in either. The sight of elephants frolicking in the knee-deep (elephant knees that is) swampy water was amazing. Groups of females with calves from one month up playing were a joy. And at sunset, as they headed back out into the dusty bush was beautiful. Other game was also abundant (zebras, wildebeasts, warthogs, hyenas, gazelle, impalla, etc.). There were giraffes in the distance, but never up close. Also at dusk, we saw a group of female lions at in the morning, a male finishing a zebra meal.

The view of Kilimanjaro was spectacular. Seeing herds of zebra and wildebeasts (and a large flock of ostrich) on the plain with Kilimanjaro was an iconic sight.

Amboseli reminds one of the stark dusty plains from 'Mad Max: Fury Road'. The park is incredibly dusty and you can see huge dust storms in the distance when driving around. But the wildlife on offer is spectacular and we saw all of the big five except for leopards.

There is something primal and timeless about the place, the way the huge herbivores amble around in the shadows of mighty Mt Kilimanjaro. One can't help shake the feeling that this scene has been playing out for millions of years.

Lots of elephants and views of Mt. Kilimanjaro at Amboseli National Park
Overall rating

Amboseli had a very large number of elephant herds in addition to the scenic backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Fortunately, the mountain was clearly visible each afternoon we were there, providing some great photo-ops with the wildlife in the foreground. While not the largest park we encountered in Kenya, it was still very big and provided a fairly diverse range of wildlife (from elephants, hippos, zebra, hyenas and lions) as well as topography. We hiked up Observation Hill for a very nice view of Kilimanjaro. Our accommodations were at Amboseli Sentrim Camp which was very nice for both our room and food. Our Kenyan driver was fantastic (provided by Vintage Africa Tours), and his knowledge of the area was extensive.
