This is the only place in Amboseli where you can get out of your vehicle and stretch your legs, have a picnic and take in some fantastic views. Its around 150 steps to get to the top, however these are very low, flat and long steps, making it fairly easy going. There is plenty of shade at the top, and lots of information boards telling you about the park and the wildlife.
The toilets are at the bottom of the hill - there are none at the top, so factor this into your trip.
The best time to get a view of Kili is in the evening, so coming up here for a sundowner is best if thats the view you are after (most lodges can arrange this)
Lots of people picnic here at midday - if you want a bit of privacy, aim for mid morning or mid afternoon
I actually got married on observation hill, so this spot is extra-special for me! Would recommend to anyone!
