Everything about Amboseli is big.
It’s a land of giants, of vast dry plains where the horizons seem limitless, of huge herds of elephants and, most impressive giant of all, Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. This magnificent, snow-capped mountain lies just over the border in Tanzania, but the most impressive views of its icy peak are to found in Amboseli. The sight of Kilimanjaro high above herds of game crossing the plains of Amboseli is a timeless African image.
At 19,340 feet, the ‘Shining Mountain’ is the highest freestanding mountain in the world and is topped by one-fifth of all the ice in Africa.
The park was listed as part of the World Network of Biosphere Reserves under the UNSECO-MAB programme in 1991 as a place which seeks to reconcile economic development, social development and environmental protection, through partnerships between people and nature, and able to demonstrate approaches to sustainable development at a regional scale.
Amboseli is a great choice adventure travel and short holidays due to its compact size, allowing you to see virtually every aspect of the unique park.
Here you can enjoy a varied array of excursions, from exploring the park to thrilling safari activities, eco-tourism adventures, guided nature walks and bird walks.
You can also enjoy dinner in the bush or breakfast on the plains and visit Maasai communities for cultural dance performances and other activities.
