Best of Amboseli National Park Attractions & Luxury Tours, Kenya
Bordering Tanzania with Mount Kilimanjaro Looming in the Distance
Located on the border of Tanzania, Amboseli National Park is a favorite destination for Kenya safaris because of the variety of wildlife present and Mount Kilimanjaro looming in the distance. Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest freestanding mountain in the world and provides a wonderful backdrop for watching the animals.
Amboseli provides incredible opportunities for viewing large numbers of African animals and birdlife because of its favorable terrain that consists of plains, swamps, acacia forests and rocky outcroppings covered in thorn bushes. The Big Five (rhino, leopard, lion, elephant and buffalo) can be seen here, as well as giraffes, zebras, antelope, hyenas, monkeys and huge wildebeest herds which are especially exciting to watch during their yearly migration.
The resident community of the Maasai people in the park also adds to the romantic atmosphere. Witness tall and colorfully clad Maasai herdsmen as they guide their herds amidst the wild African plains, or visit a village and experience traditional dances and watch as the tribe goes about daily chores in the same way as they have for hundreds of years
Ol Tukai Lodge – Located in the center of the park, Ol Tukai provides guests with comfortable rooms, unique culinary dishes, a refreshing swimming pool, Kenya safaris and plenty of viewing opportunities of African wildlife which wanders through the property.
Tortilis T Camp – A magical, luxury safari lodge offering amazing views of Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance, a watering hole for in-camp game viewing, game drives and bush safaris, a swimming pool, bar and great food. An excellent choice for a romantic and exotic honeymoon safari!
