Description of Amboseli National Park

Located about 250 Km from Nairobi and 430 Km from Mombasa, Amboseli National Park is the third most visited wildlife national park in Kenya after the Masai Mara National Reserve and Nakuru National Park.
Gazetted National Park in 1977 in order to protect this unique ecosystem, the park is famous for being the best place in Kenya to spot elephants. Furthermore, it is a must to photograph the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro (5,985 m - 17,685 ft), the greatest single mountains of the world standing amidst large herds of elephants wandering in the swamps.

Amboseli National Park is at the foot of Africa's highest mountain, and the world's highest free standing mountain,  Mount Kilimanjaro. The snow- capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro dominates every aspect of Amboseli. Amboseli National Reserve (formerly Amboseli National Park) covers only 392 square kilometers but despite its small size and its fragile ecosystem it supports a wide range of mammals, well over 50 of the larger species, and birds with over 400 species recorded. Park rangers have often noticed birds that have migrated from as far as Saint Petersburg, Russia.

The snows of Mount Kilimanjaro, white and crystalline, form a majestic backdrop to one of Kenya's most spectacular displays of wildlife - lion, elephant, leopard, rhino, cheetah, buffalo and hosts of plains' game, creating Kenya's most sought after photographer's parades. The swamps and springs have encouraged the hippos to stay around. Other animals also seen are wildebeest, antelopes, zebras, giraffes, gerenuks, gazelles, and buffalos. Amboseli National Reserve's (formerly Amboseli National Park) best game runs are around the swamps and there is a fine lookout on Observation Hill, which offers views over the whole of the Amboseli National Reserve (formerly Amboseli National Park) and beyond.

A well worth it and recommended activity is the Amboseli - Kilimanjaro balloon safari. Early in the morning, you will be woken and driven to the departure site. The balloon drifts with the gentle wind across the myriad of pinks, oranges and purples lighting up the Amboseli sky as you watch the spectacular 'African sunrise' peaking around Mount Kilimanjaro. Hot air ballooning is without doubt the most romantic way to fly. Imagine floating over the open plains and watching as the sunrise turns the awe inspiring Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest in Africa, into a purple hue, and the snows on its Kibo peak, a delicate pink. The magnificent sight of Mount Kilimanjaro above herds of elephant crossing the plains of Amboseli is a timeless African image and one of life's most memorable experiences. Experience the hot air balloon safari with friends and take a group photo with the Mount Kilimanjaro peak opening up to the early morning chill.
