Owner description: 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 elephants, Amboseli National Park is a fantastic choice for a truly breathtaking camping safari, in front of the world's finest photographic backdrop.Day 1 Amboseli National ParkDepart early from Nairobi, venturing south to the famed Amboseli National Park. Stop at your camp to enjoy lunch before beginning your safari in search of lions, elephants, rhino, and other large game, with "Kili" providing the ultimate photo backdrop.Venture south to the famed Amboseli National Park located at the foot of Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. The snow-capped peak of the mountain dominates every aspect of the park, providing the ultimate photo backdrop. Amboseli covers only 392 sq km, though despite its small size and its fragile ecosystem the park supports a wide range of mammals (well over 50 of the larger species) and birds (over 400 species). After lunch at your safari camp, spend the afternoon criss-crossing the park in seach of lions, buffaloes, elephants, rhino, cheetah, and of course the photo of a lifetime.A part of the park is composed of a dried-up lake bed which in the shimmering heat produces mirages. Swamps and springs, fed by underground rivers fromsafari camp, form permanent watering places for the wildlife through times of drought. The snows of Kilimanjaro form a majestic backdrop to one of Kenya's most spectacular displays of wildlife creating Kenya's most sought after photographer's paradise. The park's best game drives are around the swamps and there is a fine lookout on Observation Hill which offers views over the whole of the park and beyond.Years ago this was the locale around which such famous writers as Ernest Hemingway and Robert Ruark spun their stories of big-game hunting in the wilds of Africa. In addition, the park that has been made famous by Cynthia Moss, the noted American naturalist and author who has one of the longest-running studies on elephants. You might even see some of the elephants that Cynthia has immortalized in her many books and award-winning film Echo of the Elephants.Day 2 Amboseli National ParkThis is your full day to enjoy Africa at its best - countless wildlife encounters through open plains spotted with flat-topped acacia trees. Before returning to camp, stop at a traditional Masai village for an optional visit to learn about the local Masai culture.This is your full day to enjoy Africa at its best - countless wildlife encounters through open plains spotted with flat-topped acacia trees. Before returning to your safari camp in the evening, stop at a traditional "Manyatta" (Masai village) for an optional visit to learn about the local Masai culture.Part of Maasailand, Amboseli National Park is thus the home of the Masai people, those tall, proud nomads whose legendary prowess in battle and single handed acts of bravery in fights with wild animals has spread across the globe. Perhaps more than any other community in Kenya, the Masai have learned to live in complete harmony with their environment, and coexist and thrive together with the wildlife that surrounds them. The park is surrounded by Manyatta quickly built out of bent poles and sticks and plastered with cow dung and equally swiftly abandoned when the grazing is finished and the herds must move on.Day 3 Amboseli National ParkRise early for a final morning game drive, enjoying the African sun as it rises over the savannah of the Amboseli plain. Return to Nairobi in the afternoon, where your safari ends. Rise early for a final morning game drive, enjoying the African sun as it rises over the savannah of the Amboseli plain.

a unique echosystem the ideal habitat to elephants, its proximity to the air port upon arival at jkia we drive to the park for un afternoon game drive where we retire back to the beautiful permanent tent facility where we are served with tasty african cuisine with an option of cuisines,
our trip
We will leave Nairobi by safari bus driving south towards the Tanzania border through Maasai country. A picnic lunch will be served on the way. On arrival at Amboseli National Park, we shall set up camp or check into your lodge and then time permitting take a short game drive with very real chance of seeing lions, giraffes and elephants on the very first evening. To add to the experience, Mount Kilimanjaro will provide a beautiful back-drop. Dinner and accommodation will be provided at Amboseli campsite.
We will take a pre-breakfast game drive returning to the camp or lodge later for food and no doubt on discussions on the excitement of our early morning Safari. After breakfast we have a choice of a further game drive or a visit to the lodge for swimming or just showers. Lunch will be provided later back at the campsite or at the Amboseli campsite. A late afternoon game drive followed by dinner and a future overnight stay at the camp or Amboseli campsite.
After breakfast we will have time for the game drive before leaving Amboseli National Park for Nairobi. Lunch will be served en-route and we will arrive back at Nairobi in the afternoon.

Drove from Nairobi to Amboseli on 10th May, 2014. Justus from Spurwings was excellent!!! Getting out of Nairobi is the challenge. Once out of town, the landscape changes to the typical savanna. Just an hour out of town we encountered a family of giraffes. What a graceful animal! Amboseli itself is beautiful! Got to see elephants, elephants and more elephants; wild buffaloes, hippos, zebras, wildebeest, hyenas, ostrich, gazelles, impalas, and a pride of cheetahs! Would highly recommend. The sight of snow capped Kilimanjaro is beautiful! If in Kenya, don't miss Amboseli.

Wow wow wow! I cannot say enough good things about Ambosseli. We say 25 different types of animals, including several birds we were able to identify. The first day it was overcast, which meant the animals stayed out longer than usual. We saw a hippo with her baby, a gazillion elephants, a giraffe, zebras, wildebeests, gazelles, cape buffalo, cheetahs, and so much more. Would definitely recommend Ambosseli for anyone looking for a good experience. The only complaint is the park entrance fee, which is rather steep for non-residents. However, it's competitive and somewhat cheaper than other parks.

Our visit to Amboseli is a really good place to go on safari. We booked through JT (TACT) Safaris who have their headoffice based next to Dani Sea Resort, and they have the best vehicles and the best drivers who are very knowledgable about all the wildlife and know where the best places are to see them.
