Amboseli National Park is a top destination for a Kenya Safari. The park is small but a rewarding safari destination in southern Kenya on the border of Tanzania.
Amboseli is a great choice for first-time safari goers or first-timers to Kenya. The park is 39,206 hectares (392 km2; 151 sq miles) in size and allows you to see virtually every aspect in about 2 days and its proximity to Nairobi means you don’t have to follow a long-haul flight with a very long drive or another longish flight.
Short flights between Wilson Airport in Nairobi and the Amboseli airstrip take less than an hour in a light aircraft. While Kilimanjaro is actually across the border in Tanzania, Amboseli has a perfect view of this world’s tallest freestanding mountain, rising an impressive 5 km above the plains.
It’s easy to spot Lions and can occasionally be watched stalking their prey. But you should see masses of bird-life. Other animals include bat-eared foxes (a very rare sighting), giraffe, lion, buffalo, cheetah, and non-migrating wildebeest. Look out for Thomson’s gazelle, Maasai giraffe; Burchell’s or plains zebra; and plenty of spotted hyena (known as ‘spotties’ – there are no brown hyena here).
We can’t guarantee the Big 5 in Amboseli: leopard and rhino are virtually non-existent here. But don’t let that deter you as they are easily found elsewhere in Kenya (Lewa is fantastic for rhino and the Masai Mara for leopard).
Elephants are commonly sighted and many are known by name by the guides because they’ve been studied by researchers at the Amboseli Elephant Research Centre. There are over 1000 elephants in the Park.
Amboseli is also the home of the Maasai people, those tall, proud nomads whose legendary prowess in battle and single-handed acts of bravery in fights with wild animals has spread across the globe. Perhaps more than any other communities in Kenya the Maasai have learned to live in complete harmony with their environment and the wildlife which surrounds them.
Amboseli hosts a number of the most beautiful hotels and resorts known to the world. Among the best hotels includes: Amboseli Tortilis Camp, Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge, Campi ya Kanzi, Ol Donyo Lodge, Tawil Lodge among others.
