Best views of Mount Killimanjaro

From which park(s) in Kenya (or Tanzania) are there the best views of Mount Killimanjaro? I see so many photos of animals with the backdrop of the snow capped Mountain and would like to consider incorporating that into my trip planning. Thanks

From your bed at Satao Elerai Camp, with a hot water bottle and a cup of tea. :)

As mentioned above - Amboseli, but the snow caps have shrunk immensely.

when we were at Satao Elerai Camp we sat in bed one night (Feb 2012) and watched as rain came towards the mountain and turned to snow, the snow covered Kili half way down its slopes. We could see the snow falling on top of the peak.

Satao Elerai is definitely the closest camp/lodge in Kenya to the peaks.

It's true, roadwarrior, Kili's ice caps have massively shrunk, by roughly a third from the mid c19th to 1980 and another third by 2010. It's estimated they'll be gone by 2030 - 17 years from now. That doesn't affect Kili's picturesqueness, though, as it frequently gets a good dump of snow, as princess says (amazing story!) though it only lasts a few hours or days.
