Amboseli National Park

The Park is famous as ‘the Land of Giants’.

It is a 4 hour drive from Nairobi, the nearest town being Namanga on the Kenya-Tanzania border. The Park has a central Airstrip. Private Charters also use this strip.

Amboseli is a place of wide dry plains, and here, you will not see further than the horizon crowned by the snow capped peak of Kilimanjaro. its relatively small size and open plains make game viewing very easy.  It is renowned for its elephant populations and large herds, including some impressively tusked bulls are drawn to a series of large, lush swamplands.

The most obvious resident are the large elephant herds, and they are impossible to miss which provides plenty of opportunities to observe and learn from a wide variety of their social behaviour. With a well trained guide, it is easy to understand and follow the social heirachy of each herd, and their constant social interaction.

Whether it is the deep affection between a cow and her calf or a spectacular battle for dominance between two full tusked bulls, elephant behaviour is always fascinating.

Spending time among Amboseli's Elephants is the perfect way to learn more about the role that they play in the local ecosystem. There is a lot more to see in Amboseli other than Elephants. The forests and swamplands are well worth exploring, and the wetland areas and stands of acacia are rich birding country.

The open plains attract plenty of grazing game including zebra, wildebeest, and impala. Cheetah are often seen here, either hunting on the plains or at rest in the undergrowth.

The Park has a range of accommodation to suit all budgets, tastes and interests. There are very basic campsites where you can pitch a tent and sleep under canvas in the wild, well appointed safari lodges, luxury tented camps with large, fully furnished tents, small private camps for your exclusive use and much, much, more.
