The Amboseli National Park is located about 200km south-east of Nairobi in Kenya, and is easily accessible by road or air. The landscape of Amboseli is dominated by open grassy plains, acacia woodland and wetlands that support a rich diversity of wildlife.
Wildlife sightings of lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, spotted hyena, giraffe and cheetah are common. The birding is also excellent especially near the lakes and wetlands with a list that tops 300 species.
Not only does the Amboseli National Park offer great game viewing but it also offers the post-card perfect view of the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro rising above the savannah.
Amboseli safari accommodation is available at luxury Kenya safari lodges and activities offered, range from game drives, horse-back safaris and guided nature walks. An Amboseli safari in Kenya can easily be combined with other top Kenya safari destinations.
