Amboseli National Park is one of the best destinations to get up close to free-ranging elephants. Observation Hill provides spectacular views of Mt. Kilimanjaro along with the ability to over look the entire park, most notably the swamps that attract large herds of Elephant, Buffalo, Hippos, and some 600 species of birds.
The year round wildlife includes Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Buffalo, Rhino, Elephant, Giraffe, Zebra, Crocodile, Mongoose, Hyrax, Dik-Dik, Lesser Kudu, Nocturnal Porcupine, and the elusive Wild Dog among others.
The 390 sq. miles that make up Amboseli National park can be found 150 miles from Nairobi along Kenya’s Southern border. The reserve is accessible by car (2 to 3 hours from Nairobi) or by scheduled flights from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport.
