Visit Amboseli for a Timeless Safari Experience
Amboseli boasts magnificent views of the Mighty Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain standing at 5,896 metres or 19,340 feet tall, which lies just the other side of the border. It’s also justly famous for its big game - elephant, lion, and cheetah are the main attractions - and for its great scenic beauty.
Nature lovers can explore five different habitats here ranging from the dried-up bed of Lake Amboseli, wetlands with sulphur springs, the savannah, and woodlands. You’ll also be able to visit the local Maasai community who live around the park and experience their authentic culture.
