“Beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

The view gives one birds eye view after the dusty roads while doing the game drives.You will see very far as long as the sky is cleafr and then sun not very hot.The naming of all the rocks available and the history of the small hill.You will have a chance of sseeing small island with pelicans.

“View point of Amboseli National Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Observation Hill is a point you would not want to miss when in Amboseli National park.This is the view point of the park.At the hill you are able to see the park clearly giving you a clear view of the Amboseli. When on game drives this is a point to stop walk up the the hill and see the wonders for your self.It is an awesome place to be.

“the best place to see the wolrd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

After hours of game drive, it was time to come out of our car, the clean toilets at the base of the hill made us feel that we are in the right place, on the way up is educative info about amboseli, up the hill you see 360 degrees of amboseli national park,it was awesome.
This is a place to go back again and again.

Good place to have lunch and snack during Safari. It is situated at a hill which over looks the Amboseli Reserve.

“Great View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

The walk is good with steps all the way up the hill. The view from the top is just breath taking. You can see elephants down on the plains, some in the swamps, pelicans etc.

If you are there for the sundowner, brilliant. We witnessed one of the most amazing sunsets.
