4 Reasons You Must Visit Amboseli National Park
East Africa is home to an astonishing number of landscapes, whether it’s savannah, rainforest, mountains, or valleys, making it the perfect destination for the adventurous at heart.
Located at the foot of Africa’s tallest mountain, and famous for its large herds of elephant, Amboseli is one of the most popular national parks in East Africa, and here are just four reasons why it should be onyour bucket list:
1. There Are Massive Herds of Elephants
Amboseli is home to over 1000 elephants, which includes 58 families and close to 300 independent adult males. I n fact, one of Africa’s most iconic sights is that of a herd of elephants in Amboseli moving majestically and calmly in the foreground, with the snow capped peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro rising behind them.
2. It’s the Perfect Choice For a First Time Safari Goer
If this is your first East African safari, Amboseli is a great choice due to its compact size. Because it’s quite small, you can see every aspect of it in 2-3 days, and its proximity to Nairobi means you won’t have to take a long drive or flight to get there.
In addition, because it’s small, it’s easy for rangers to patrol and it’s very well kept.
3. You’ll Experience Incredible Game Drives
Although Amboseli National Park is justly famous for its elephants, most big safari animals can be spotted during your game drives, including lions, cheetah, hyena, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, and many others.
With Mt Kilimanjaro providing the perfect backdrop, animals roaming the endless plains of the Amboseli is truly a timeless African image you won’t soon forget.
4. You Can Enjoy Stunning Views of Mt. Kilimanjaro
