Amboseli is famous for its huge herds of elephant and thousands of other large plains animals that come to drink at the area's many permanent lakes and swamplands. Photo opportunities are something of an attraction, using the very distinctive Mount Kilimanjaro as a backdrop for a wide variety of wildlife.
A lesser known fact is that the Amboseli has its own wildebeest and zebra migration, albeit on a much smaller scale than the Maasai Mara. Other plentiful species include Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles, buffalo, hartebeest, eland and waterbuck as well as healthy populations of lion and hyena.
The Amboseli region has several lodges and safari camps and walking safaris are also popular here. It's proximity to the Tanzanian border makes it a popular add-on to an itinerary that includes Tanzania.
We have no scheduled safaris to Amboseli but can include one on a tailor-made Kenyan safari itinerary. We recommend spending at least 2 nights at Amboseli National Park. Speak to us about your safari wishlist and we'd be more than happy to design a custom safari to suit your budget and requirements.
