Call a specialist to talk about Amboseli now.

Amboseli is one of the most visited parks in Kenya.  Established in 1968 as a reserve, it became a National Park in 1974 and covers 392 sq km forming part of the 3,000 sq km Amboseli ecosystem which lies in the south east of Kenya on the border with Tanzania.

There are 5 main wildlife habitats in Amboseli National Park: open plains, acacia woodland, rocky thorn bush, swamps and marshland.  The landscape is dominated by Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain in neighbouring Tanzania, which provides a stunning backdrop for the large concentrations of wildlife to be found here in the dry season. At dawn and dusk the cloud cover breaks to reveal the dazzling snow-capped peak.

Although Amboseli's attractions inevitably attract visitors in large numbers, housed in huge motel-type lodges, the trick is to actually stay in one of the more remote lodges, carefully choosing where and when to visit the areas where the greatest density of game is to be found.

Above all, Amboseli is known as the place to come if you want to see nature's gentle giant - the elephant.
