Amboseli National Park

Kenya

  • Lynda from Northampton travelled with a group of friends to the Masai Mara, KenyaDear Bill, may I congratulate you and all your staff who helped in any way in making our holiday to Africa so very special. Everything was amazing. The safari was out of this world, the animals were incredible, so many and so varied, we saw a porcupine and a serval which were firsts for me. The camp was beautiful, far beyond our wildest dreams. The hosts and all their staff were amazing and so friendly. I can’t fault anything, yet again Safari Consultants have come out tops. Many thanks again for everything you have done for us.Lynda from Northampton travelled with a group of friends to the Masai Mara, Kenya

Amboseli National Park

Just 180kms south-east from Nairobi, and with Mount Kilimanjaro as the impressive scenic back drop, Amboseli is one of Kenya’s best known parks and offers superb game-viewing, especially for elephant which have been studied here for many years by people such as Cynthia Moss.

Lying at an altitude of nearly 4,000’ at the foot of Africa’s highest mountain, the terrain in Amboseli consists mainly of scrub and fragile saline grass as the dry, volcanic ash will support little more. There are a few patches of acacia woodland, whilst the melting snows of Kilimanjaro feed rivers and springs which in turn supply water to Amboseli’s swamps and the (seasonal) lake. The mountain makes a scenic backdrop for photographing the variety of animals that are seen here. The Maasai people are also very much a part of life in Amboseli and they are often seen grazing their cattle on the community lands which surround the park. Some of these community lands have developed into conservancies, and whilst wildlife numbers are still growing, they do offer a more exclusive Amboseli safari away from the busier core areas of the park itself.
