Majestic backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest peak of Africa @ 5895 metres, hundreds of big-tusked elephants, wildebeest and zebras, and you have a reasonable chance of spotting lions, cheetahs and hyenas. The Amboseli national park is also home to over 370 bird species, and it has an excellent array of lodges and an agreeably mild, dry climate. Nature lovers can explore five different habitats here ranging from the dried-up bed of Lake Amboseli, wetlands with sulphur springs, the savannah and woodlands.
Amboseli has an endless underground water supply filtered through thousands of feet of volcanic rock from Kilimanjaro’s ice cap, which funnel into two clear water springs in the heart of the park.
