“Amboseli Kilimanjaro Wildlife Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The reason why I prefer to call it Amboseli Kilimanjaro is that Amboseli lies under the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, so you dont need to be in Tanzania to see the highest ground of Africa. On a clear sky day the snow peaks of Kilimanjaro can be seen from here.
Amboseli apears like a vast football pitch and so animals: elephants, hippo, buffalo, lions, wildebeest, zebra, giraffe etc can easily be seen even from a distance

“SUNRISE & SUNSET!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I was so impressed with view during the Sunrise and Sunset if you will be on this Observation Hill with little swamp to the bottom. When you're on top of this Hill you may stay there with your cup of coffee or tea or with your cold drinks from you cooler box and enjoy the smooth cool wind coming from the East of Kilimanjaro!
