Great place to stop for lunch and get a wide all round view of the park. There is a shelter on top of the hill to provide shade from the heat and also interesting information boards. Toilets at the bottom of the hill are interesting.!!!

Long drive to the observation hill made our experince a little dissapointing but it was nice to the Amboseli for the hill. In the swamps just below the hill you can see the hypos

Observation Hill offers an excellent view of the entire park. The volcanic history of the site can be understood from the write ups available and the stretches of black soil

Great visibility of park, lots of fog when viewing Mt. Kilimanjaro. There are a lot of steps to get to the top of the hill, but it's not a steep climb. There are bathrooms but they don't look like they get serviced often. All bathrooms...More

Well-situated for a much-needed restroom break, as well as a good place for a picnic and shade. Excellent views in all directions.

Visited the Observation Hill in Amboseli National Park during our July 2018 visit. The swamp that was just below the hill in 13 is no more there. The view is beautiful though and we were able to spot a lot of elephants during our drive...More

As part of our day trip to Amboseli National Park we stopped at Observation Hill for lunch. Lovely location and great views across the vista. Unfortunately Mount Kilimanjaro was hiding but the Hill was a great stop to stretch your legs. Toilets available as well.

The observation hill is the highest point in the park. It's very picturesque and affords a good view of the park. You can also view the sea of flamingos. It's a very short walk up.
