Crowned by Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, Amboseli National Reserve is one of Kenya’s most popular tourist parks. The name “Amboseli” comes from a Maasai word meaning “salty dust,” an apt description for the park’s parched conditions. The reserve is one of the best places in Africa to view large herds of elephants up close. Other wildlife commonly spotted in the park includes big cats, such as lion and cheetah, as well as giraffe, impala, eland, water-buck, gazelle, and more than 600 species of birds. Nature lovers can explore five different habitats here, ranging from the dried-up bed of Lake Amboseli, wetlands with sulfur springs, Savannah, and woodlands. Look for the local Maasai people who live in the area around the park.
2 Days Amboseli Safari from Nairobi takes you to Amboseli National Park where you will explore the park. Amboseli National Park is situated in Loitoktok District, Rift Valley Province of Kenya. Amboseli National Park ecosystem is mainly savannah grassland spread across the Kenya -Tanzania border, an area of low scrubby vegetation and open grassy plains, all of which makes for easy game viewing. It is the best place in Africa to get close to free-ranging elephants among other wildlife species offering spectacular photographic experiences.
Second in popularity after the legendary Masai Mara, the park not only offers great game viewing but is also the place to go for the best views of iconic Mount Kilimanjaro, the world’s tallest free-standing mountain. The best time to view Kilimanjaro is at dawn and sunset when the clouds lift and the light is clear and soft.
The park can be accessed by road or air. Accommodation is available at several luxury safari lodges and you’ll explore the park on game drives, and guided nature walks.
