Amboseli National Park

It is one of most the popular protected areas in Kenya and it is the second most visited Park in Kenya next to only Maasai Mara.

The Park is situated in Kajiado County in the south-eastern parts of Kenya about 240km from Nairobi and it covers a total surface area of 392 square kilometers at the border with Tanzania thus offering clear views of Africa’s highest mountain (Mountain Kilimanjaro).

However more special in the Park is its huge population of the free-ranging elephants which are over 1,200 elephants in the Park and the Park is one of the best destinations in Africa for viewing African elephants in high amounts.

All Africa’s big five were available in the Park but due to various issues including poaching, Rhinos have nowadays become extinct and you will be a very lucky person to spot any of either a white rhino or a black rhino though other four species are all available and stable in the Park such as African Lions, Cape buffaloes, Leopards and the huge population of African elephants all spotted during your game viewing.

The Park protects a big number of bird species (over 400 bird species) some of which include; water birds such as Kingfishers, Pelicans, Hammerkops, Crakes and many more plus many of Kenya-bird species.

Other wildlife species in the Park include; blue wildebeests, cheetahs, spotted hyenas, impalas, jackals, Grant’s zebras, and Masai giraffes. Accommodations in the Park include; Amboseli Serena safari lodge, Kibo safari camp, Ol Tukai safari lodge, Amboseli Sopa lodge, Tortilis safari camp among others.

The Park consists of a seasonal Lake which is resided in the western section of the Park which is known as Lake Amboseli though during the dry season it becomes erased leaving just pools.

The beautiful landscape of the Park and its views to Africa’s highest Mountain (Mountain Kilimanjaro) all makes it so attractive to many African tourists and if you add it to its abundance in wildlife then your safari will be of a lifetime.
