The Home of Elephants
Amboseli National Park is located in the Rift Valley Province and is the most popular destination after the Masai Mara National Park. Towered by Mt Kilimanjaro which stands 5,896 m high, the park is one of the earliest game sanctuaries in Kenya. Its image of large herds of elephants crossing the vast plains and Mount Kilimanjaro in the background make for a classic African safari. Other wildlife such as spotted and striped hyena, Maasai Giraffe, leopard, cheetah, Hyrax, did-dik, crocodile, Lesser Kudu, and the nocturnal porcupine also call the park home. Its large papyrus swamps form the only permanent source of water for the animals in the park. Surrounded by tall Acacia trees, the swamps are a centre of activities for large animals such as elephants, buffaloes, rhinos and hippos.
Home to more than 400 species of birds, the park is a paradise for bird lovers and watchers. The cone-shaped Observation Hill offers countless photographic views and amazing sunset to behold. Being an open country, the park is also home to the Maasai community. Various camps and lodges inside the park organize visits to the local Maasai villages.
