Amboseli covers 150 square miles of diverse landscape at the core of a 3,100 square mile ecosystem that spreads across the Kenya-Tanzania border. The park protects two of the five main swamps, and has a mixed topography of plains, acacia woodland, and even includes a dried-up Pleistocene lake. There is even opportunity to view (or climb!) the colossal Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world.

The Park is an exciting safari destination as it is the best place in the world to get close to free-ranging elephants. Over 900 of these mighty creatures roam the park, guaranteeing a sighting. The protected area is also home to Cape buffalo, impala, lion, cheetah, spotted hyena, and many more African favourites. Amboseli boasts the best opportunities to see African wildlife as the vegetation is sparse due to the long, dry months.

Birdwatching is another incredible feature of the park, with over 370 species, including African skimmers, red and yellow bishops, goshawks, buffalo weavers and palm nut vultures.

Meet the Maasai people and learn about the Maasai culture and their indigenous lifestyle, or visit Observation Hill to see the park in all its splendour.
