It is one of the most stunning parks in Kenya. It’s location near Mt. Kilimanjaro makes it very special and unique. You can expect the big troops of elephants, many beautiful birds and many other species.

This is not a park to see the big 5 (rhinos are not here, leopards and cheetahs are hard to see), but it has probably the best setting from all the national parks in Kenya. The omnipresent Kilimanjaro in the backdrop is extremelly beautiful, and...More

Amboseli is such a cool place to view large herds of elephants. The services of an experienced guide is useful in understanding the daily life of these large mammals. I recommend Amboseli to anyone willing to learn about elephants.

One of the best destinations in Africa when it comes to landscapes. The view of Kilimanjaro behind the acacia trees is breathtaking. Game view is on the average - zebras, wild beasts, lions, less giraffes, hippos. Good for bird lovers due to water holes /...More
