Amboseli National Park Amboseli is known as the best place in Africa for getting up close to free-ranging elephants. The population is so robust here that sightings are guaranteed! Kilimanjaro, the largest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world, towers over the park like a stately and photogenic sentinel. On your game drives on Amboseli’s great horizons you can spot elephants, wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, gazelle and of course, cheetahs and lions and not to be overlooked – smaller mammals like hyena, foxes, jackals, vervet monkey and the yellow baboon abound.The bird life is equally rich especially in the park’s marshes and lakes.
And you’ll find the Maasai people in their villages spread around the park. You can visit with them and experience a truly authentic and ancient African culture.
