Amboseli National Park Safari, Vacations & Wildlife Experiences


  • Amboseli is a photographer's dream
  • Hippos fighting over a riverbank will make for a great photo on your Kenyan safari.
  • Rhino family
  • You will see many exotic images while on your Amboseli National Park safari.

Located in an ecosystem that spans across the Kenya-Tanzania border, Amboseli National Park is found in the Loitoktok District of the Rift Valley Province in Kenya. The open easy-to-see environment found in the park on a Kenya vacation has made it famous for some of the best views of Mount Kilimanjaro as well as up close encounters with free-ranging elephants.

Originally set aside as a “Southern Reserve” for the Maasai in 1906, local control was returned in 1948 and Amboseli became a game reserve. By 1974 it was listed as a national park in order to protect its unique ecosystem. This ecosystem was recognized by UNESCO when the park was named as a Man and Biosphere reserve in 1991.

Although not part of Tanzania, Amboseli sits at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro offering some of the most incredible views of Africa’s highest mountain. The park is made up of low scrubby vegetation and open grassy plains which allow for easy game viewing on a Kenyan vacation. Over 900 free-ranging elephants call the park home and as such, Amboseli is famed for its elephant viewing (rated as one of the best in the world). Other animals such as buffaloes, lions, cheetahs, giraffes and zebras are not uncommon in the park.

The local Maasai tribes that surround the park have lived in the area for more than 400 years. Maintaining a traditional pastoral way of life, the Maasai also invite visitors to their villages to take part in a truly African experience.
