Here is Our Collection of Safaris to this Majestic Reserve
Come to Amboseli where over 1600 great elephants roam the savannahs, forests, and fields of this compact but very active park. Their numbers are so large, you can’t miss them as they parade to their favorite watering hole. Nothing is as delightful as looking upon the elephant families, bringing along their young, as they go about their busy day.
On most African safaris you usually can’t be assured of sighting a particular species but here at Amboseli, we guarantee that you will see the elephants. The reserve is famous for being perhaps the best spot in Africa for elephant spotting.
And this very popular park also hosts its share of lions, cheetahs, wildebeests, Masai Giraffes, buffalo, zebra, jackal, hyena, fox, baboon, and monkeys. Plus, Amboseli’s fluid marshes show off avian life such as egret, pelican, Egyptian goose, kingfisher, heron, and over 370 other species of birds.
A day spent at Amboseli will be busy and rich with the abundant wildlife this active park generously offers its visitors.
Mt. Kilimanjaro – Stunning Sentinel
Great Kilimanjaro dominates the park’s southern vista, seemingly a guardian of all who pass before it. The immense rise of Africa’s tallest peak presents a snow-capped summit – an iconic image known throughout the world.
And though cloud cover can sometimes obscure the snowy pinnacle, lucky visitors can often catch a startling glimpse in the early morning or as the clouds part near sunset.
This bountiful mix of photogenic landscapes and the joyous trains of elephants parading by is a photographer’s dream. Just another gift that Amboseli offers lucky safari-goers.
The Wildlife and the Land
Not to be overshadowed by Kilimanjaro’s dominant form, Amboseli boasts five wildlife environments, each supporting a bounty of animals.
You’ll be tracking for Africa’s “Big Five” – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino in the park’s savannah and woodlands. Its dusty thorn-bush regions will reveal sightings of impalas, zebras, and wildebeests.
Exploring Amboseli’s marshy wetlands and lakes, you’ll spot every sort of birdlife – pelicans, egrets, cranes, and even flamingoes during the rainy seasons.
As its name implies, this pyramid-shaped volcanic remnant is an excellent lookout point for stunning views of the park. From this vantage point, you’ll be able to spot the park’s many elephants and rhinos as well.
The hill presents one of the few opportunities in the reserve to leave your safari vehicle and stretch your legs with a stimulating hike. Reaching the summit, you’ll be rewarded with expansive views of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Stick around for the sunsets – they can be spectacular.
Amboseli continually surprises with its variety of landforms. The Sinet Delta, located in the park’s northern section provides rich and varied birdlife hosted by the thick vegetation found here.
Look for crakes, ibis, ostrich, and raptors, plus a large number of giraffes populate the area. The Delta also presents more stunning views of Mt. Kilimanjaro to the south.
The People of Amboseli
They are the Maasai – an ancient pastoral people that have made East Africa their home for hundreds of years. You’ll know them even at a distance, garbed in their colorful and fashionable bright plaid wraps.
Besides farming, the Maasai cultivate livestock, mainly cattle and goats, a central part of their lifestyle and culture. While at Amboseli, enjoy a visit to one of their villages and see their homes and corrals.
The Maasai are a welcoming people and will share their customs and ceremonies with you. You can even pick up some of their beaded necklaces and bracelets -memorable souvenirs for you, that will benefit the villagers and their children.
