Kilimanjaro as backdrop, elephants, and that you can stay at lodges within the park boundary.

Watching Elephants roam across the plain with Kilimanjaro as a backdrop

We stayed at Sentrim Lodge just outside the gate to Amboseli. We done an evening tour on our first evening and a full day in the park the following day. The park may not be the biggest but it certainly has a lot going for it. We saw Herds of Elephant roaming, Hyenas in a den, Lion, Baboons with young, Ostrich, Hippos, Giraffe, Wilderbeast and many other animals roaming free. A must is a picnic on Observation hill where you can watch over a lot of the park. All of this with of Course Kilimanjaro as a backdrop that unveils itself for the evening sunset.

Amboseli, Kenya. Mind.Blown.

Absolutely outstanding park, and our Masai guide Tiampati Manei was so incredibly knowledgeable and conscientious- our safari company Wild-Eye.co.za with Gerry Van Der Walt were simply amazing in their professionalism, knowledge of park logistics, animal behaviours, etc. The wildlife was abundant, and the animals were safe in their own natural habitat. I will, without question, return.

It is one of the most visited park by professionals as you see Elephant's enjoying in swamps close by is mount Kilimanjaro which one can easily capture in the background when shooting wide shots.

It was our first safari, and we were thrilled with the sight of the elephants and the beautiful scenery. It was a wonderful experience. Our guide with Transtrek Safaris was very knowledgeable and the Lodge they organised for us was first class with lovely and varied food. There was a lot of other wildlife to see as well, and in December we did not find it too hot.

Great- with snow-capped Mt Kili in the background and lots and lots of elephants and other animals. Sighted lions eating a zebra in a bush quite far away.

The Majestic elephants and the Majestic Kilimanjaro

What better way to start a safari in Kenya than to spot 5 cheetahs on a tree! That was what welcomed our group as we entered the Amboseli National Park. The entire experience at the Amboseli National park was excellent. We stayed at the Serena Lodge and the accommodation, food and the overall experience left nothing to be desired for.
The weather was very pleasant. The mornings and evenings made everything the sunlight touched, turn orange!
The guides we had were with us for the entire tour (before and beyond Amboseli) were well versed in the information about the park and the wildlife found here. We used Land Cruisers to travel around (these vehicles were with us from Nairobi till we went back to Nairobi) and had very comfortable travel.
The main wild life we saw at Amboseli were the Elephants. We were a photo tour group and the objective at Amboseli was to get an Elephant looking towards the camera, with the Mt. Kilimanjaro in the background. And we did manage to get it quite easily, multiple times!
Other than this, there were quite a few zebra, wildebeest, giraffes, gazelles,etc. Though not known for the predators, I got to see my first pair of African lions here. Hyenas, hippos, etc. too were seen, though not in large numbers. The park also houses a huge variety of birds!
The sunset over the distant mountains in the evenings is also a sight to behold. I would recommend this is as one of the Must See places in Kenya.

Amboseli is the place for lots of elephant viewing

Amboseli has a wide variety of animals and birds, capped off by beautiful views of Kilimanjaro. We saw so much more than we ever thought we would and the landscape is beautiful - it seems to change every few kilometers! We stayed in the Porini camp and couldn't have been happier with everything we experienced.
