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.
Vast open marshes with abundant wildlife, and at the background the Kilimanjaro Mountain dominance.

We met a lot of animals and faced on awesome hunting of lion. We could see that lion was eating her prey. I’ve never seen such a moment ever.

The landscapes are beautiful. Some parts are desert-like and the other lush, green wetlands - topped with views of Kilimanjaro! Extraordinary! This place stole my heart!

Of course Amboseli has Kilimanjaro and we were lucky enough to have views of it
Abundance of wildlife from flamingoes to elephants was great

The giant elephants here are famous and it is worth getting up early for a chance to see Mt Kilimanjaro before the clouds descend.
Bird lovers in particular, this is a must-see. The wetlands are unique and SO many rare species are here to see, including rare heron, sacred ibis and other wetland birds.
