Elephants and snow capped Kilimanjaro...

The Amboseli National Park

One of the most classical pictures that springs to mind when thinking about a luxury safari in Kenya is that of ice capped Kilimanjaro from the Amboseli National Park. Although the Amboseli is seen as dry and dusty the park is well supported by the endless underground water supply that trickles through the volcanic rock from the top of Kilimanjaro.

The Amboseli is well known for it’s large herds of elephant which can often number in excess of one hundred. In addition to these imposing herds that enjoy the surface water springs are the plains game, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, impala and warthog and as always when there are plentiful plains herbivores there are plentiful big cats, lion, leopard, and cheetah are all present. Unfortunately due to poaching there are no longer any rhino in the park.

The best time to visit the park is between July and October when it is the warm dry season, this is followed by the short rains during November and December and a hot humid period between January and March before the rainy season from April to until June.

Although the Amboseli national park is one of the smaller game parks in Kenya, it still offers some of the best game viewing opportunities. The area's low grass levels that are kept in check by the areas dusty volcanic floor ensures that game is easy to spot. The big cats can usually easily be seen and often even spotted stalking their prey. Buffalo, cheetah, gazelle, hyena, jackal, wildebeest, zebra, and baboon are just some of the animals that can be encountered in the Amboseli.

In contrast to the dusty earth of the park streams from Tanzania’s Kilimanjaro surface in the Amboseli, creating vast swamps that attract, support and occasionally trap a variety of wild animals. The Amboseli National Park combines excellently with a few nights in the Masai Mara or Shaba National Parks thereby offering a diverse collection of Kenyan scenery.
