Amboseli National Park is a photographer's paradise thanks to the abundant wildlife such as lions, cheetahs, rhinos, and buffalo roaming under the shadows of majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest peak. With its large concentration of African...more

The thing about Amboseli is the massive herds of elephants, many of which are huge, and Mount Kilamanjaro. We spent 2 days here and loved it but when we got to the Mara we felt like it was a step above in terms of size...More
this was a totally different habitat. Great sightings of huge elephant herds. In fact one overexcited elephant nearly charged our safari jeep. We even sighted a lion and lioness mating a little distance away. This was a real rare sight. The swamps are full of...More
The best feature is the view of Mt Kilimanjaro at sunrise and the elephant herds. The entry fee to the park allows you two enties in 24 hours so our guide recommended an evening safari and a morning safari the same day using the same...More
Amboseli National Park was excellent. We saw many elephants and several came close to the car. Over the two days we spent there we also saw a pride of lions, zebras, baboons, monkeys, ostrich, giraffe, wildebeest, flamingos, gazelle and a giraffe. There is also a...More
It was awesome to see a big herd of elephants in the park.
I didn’t expect to see so many flamingos in Amboseli, so this was very special!
It would have been so nice if we could capture the view of Mt Kilimanjaro. (It was...More
We loved Amboseli, probably one of the best places to See large Groups of Elephants together, having Kilimanjaro as a backdrop makes it even more special, there is also a large variety of other animals and birds to see in the park and the lake...More
If you're looking for elephants, this is the place to be. They are all over! Exiting through the Namanga gate is not a good idea- it's a long way out, and the road is terribly rough (wash boarding effect)
I thought that the wildlife was good but definitely thin. We spent an hour watching a group of elephants crossing the road. Another nearly an hour watching a dozen giraffes crossing the road. Masses of flamingos were excellent. Bird diversity was good but you have...More
We are interested in a current Groupon for an Africa safari with Africa Answers- I've read some very favorable reviews on different African destinations and was hoping to get some input on the following gaming areas: Amboseli National Park, Lake Nakuru Nat. Park and Masai Mara- also, we are targeting mid March- would this be a good time of year to see lots of wildlife in these parks? Tks! Robin

Note: Programs in 2007 spend one night in Nairobi, two nights in Lake Nakuru National Park, and two nights in Sweetwaters Game Reserve....More

I looked at the itinerary, and it is perfect. The lodges and hotels and camps are the same ones I used for years except I preferred the Serena at Amboseli. If the August or October departures work for you, those are the ones I would recommend. And the price is a great deal.

first safari holiday - currency, how much to take?? (4 Replies)
I'm going on a 6 day safari to Kenya followed by 4 nights in Zanzibar in January. The safari element is full board, with the latter part of the holiday half board. What currency do I need to take and also I have no idea of the cost of things so am a bit clueless in deciding how much money to bring with me. I've seen posts advising to take cash out of ATMs but I'm wondering if I we have access to an ATM for large parts of the holiday. We stay one day/night in Nairobi on arrival, then the...More

After paying your safari extra cash you need for extra staffs it's depend with what you will be interested in if it's Visiting Masai Village, hot air balloon, buying handicraft, tipping, also if you will like to take drinks. The least you can have with you is 200-300$ This if you are not interested of hot air balloon safari. ATM are many in Nairobi
