There weren't as many animal species in Amboseli as that in Masai Mara, but we took many wonderful pictures of elephants with snow-covered-Kilimanjaro. And there were more birds, beautiful.
No were else in Africa you can go on safaris with the Kilimanjaro rising majestically in the backgro
There is a classic view of Africa with an elephant walking across the open grassland beside a solitary acacia tree. In the background, soaring into the sky like a triumphant Christmas pudding is the rounded bulk of Mt Kilimanjaro. we stayed a Kibo Safari Camp. Probably the best Hotel Every room its a luxury tent. We paid for all meals included . Safaris early in the morning and in the afternoon. Easy to spot the wild animals and since i was there mosly for birding, my guide was probably the most expert birding guide in all kenya. Im dying to go back soon. Masai people are very friendly and proud of been the best guard to keep you safe at night if you like to take a walk on the hotel ground after dark.

This park has got the best landscape
Amboseli is a fantastic park, where every animal can be spotted without having to ride too mano miles. In a couple of hours we were able to watch all kinds of animals.
This park has got the best landscape: kilimanjaro mountain and a beautiful Lake with dozens of flamingos and pelicans and many other birds.
Of course the elephant is the most popular animal in Amboseli as it exists in largue numbers.
We stayed at OI Tukai Lodge.

Amazing views of Mt Kilimanjaro. However game was scarce and area was swampy. Very high mosquito bite eating.

Heavy rains had washed out some of the park roads right before we arrived so some of the park was flooded and animal viewing was not what it could have been.

Thanks a lot to the team of Beacon Safaris, my week in Kenya was awesome. I enjoyed EVERY MINUTE OF MY TRIP from the great lodge accommodations in Amboseli (Kibo) and in Tsavo (Kilaguni) and the exciting game drives (thank you John for everything). The perfect end was the 3 days in Diani Beach, a paradise on Earth. I gladly recommend Beacon Safaris for a stress free experience!
The "grid" of trenches between marshes detracted from the beauty. Otherwise awesome.

Amazing scenery and really spectacular views of so many elephants from close!!!
Kilimangiaro, the roof of savannah
Among the parks we visited in Kenya, Amboseli clearly stand out for the background of Kilimangiaro. The mountain, nearly 6000 meters tall, snow covered on the top, is in beautiful contrast with the low vegetation of the park. It is quite easy to take a classic photo of elefants in front of the mountain.
Trees are also beautiful, looks like a Batik picture. The wildlife is rich. Many big animals and birds.
The weather (end December) was cloudy in the morning and then improves from the first afternoon to evening.
If you like to take pictures I suggest you to use a zoom like an 80-400 mm 2.8 on an FX sensor. If you shoot APS-C it is better to have at least a 200 mm zoom. Note that you cannot use a tripod (cannot go off the jeep) so image stabilization or fast glass are a must.
