If we were to recommend only one national park to visit in Kenya, it would definitely be Amboseli! You get it all there: Kilimanjaro, elephants, giraffe, zebra, flamingos, as well as an extremely friendly Maasai village!

Good for an overnight because it takes 6 hours one-way to drive from Nairobi. Top class hotels abound just outside the park gates. You'll want at least 2 hours for safari in the park. What a thrill to see elephants, hippos, zebras, wildebeests, warthogs, giraffes,...More

We were a group of eighteen travelers from Canada, commencing our safari experience. Our lodge was at the base of Mount Kilamanjaro, a stunning viewfinder. We were surrounded by swamp lands so the animals congregate here for the water: we saw hippos, wildebeest, zebras, gazelles,...More

Thousands of flamingos, elephants, wildebeests, thomson gazelles, baboons, and zebras - giraffes, hippos, and hyenas too! Everywhere I looked there were hundreds of animals. No animal-spotting skills necessary. I have never seen anything like it, and no description I can provide would adequately capture the...More

A good mix of rains and dry season, has turned the park into a small Paradise. Plenty of animals, Elephants, Wildebeest, Zebras, Buffalo's and even Lions are easy to spot. The shallow lakes have attracted millions of birds including Flamingos and Pelicans.

Amboseli is like a big zoo. It is not too big but big enough to spend a wonderful day wandering around in a Jeep.

This is a great National park with many animals. The attention is the many families of Giant Elephants in the park. Mt Kilimanjaro is well visible from the park in a clear sky.

You need to make an arrangement before you get to the park. I recommend Tazama Frica holidays
