What it is like to be here
There are so many intriguing things about Elephants and there is no better place to observe them than this park. It is one of the few parks in Africa with a population of 1500 elephants. Here, you will get to understand why elephants have the longest gestation period among land mammals—22 months. You will get to appreciate their sheer size as the largest land mammals in the world. You will get blown away by the realization that the average weight of their babies at birth is 260 pounds-that’s over 37 times the average weight of a human baby-7pounds.
It is a vast open savannah grassland at the foot of Kilimanjaro-
Africa’s highest mountain, also known as the only free standing
mountain in the world. Thanks to abundance of hills which double
as vantage points, it is very easy to spot animals in Amboseli. You
will see Hyrax, Buffalos, Giraffes, Dik- dik, Zebras, Crocodile,
Mongoose and Lesser Kudu. But it is the cats you will remember.
The lions, cheetahs and wild dogs. Ooh, there is also the
Nocturnal Porcupine and over 600 bird species. In the dry season-
all of these come to watering holes to quench their thirst courtesy
of snow melt from Kilimanjaro’s snow caped peaks.
It is an exquisite destination for nature photographers as it looks
completely different during different times of the day. The most
magical sight is the golden sunset.
Yes, it is true that the park becomes quite marshy and flooded
during rainy seasons. However, you will hardly be affected by this
occurrence as our fleet of cars are custom made for navigating
