Crowned by the snow-capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli National Park offers one of the most impressive wildlife experiences in the world. Where else would you find yourself gazing at large herds of elephants against the backdrop of Africa’s highest peak? As well as the promise of elephant sightings, you’ve got a good chance of spotting zebras, wildebeests, lions, cheetahs, hippos, giraffes, hyenas and countless birds. In other words, there’s no shortage of exciting animal encounters here.
The diversity of the wildlife at Amboseli is matched by the diversity of the landscapes. From swampy wetlands and lush woodlands to the sprawling savannah and dried-up lake, the park boasts some truly spectacular scenery. It’s no wonder these environments inspired the stories of esteemed writers such as Ernest Hemingway and the well-known naturalist Dr Cynthia Moss, whose books and an award-winning film was based on her study of elephants at Amboseli. One of her most famous subjects was Echo the elephant, who remains one of the most researched mammals in the world.
But it’s not just wildlife and scenery that makes Amboseli one of Kenya's top attractions. On the outskirts of the park are traditional Maasai villages, most of which have remained untouched by modern life. A visit to these villages offers the opportunity to meet these warm and welcoming people and learn about their unique customs and traditions.
Whether you’re spotting wildlife on a safari, admiring the panoramic views of the park from Observation Hill or immersing yourself in the local culture, you can’t help but feel in awe of this breathtaking national park.
If you’re looking to see elephants in the wild, there’s nowhere better than Amboseli National Park. Have a read of our blogs for some handy travel tips and advice.
