Outstanding wildlife, authentic safari
Amboseli National Park is a small, well established and maintained national park named after a Masai word meaning salty dust because thousands of years ago, Mt. Kilimanjaro erupted and covered this area with volcanic ash.Nowadays, Amboseli is one of the most popular national parks in Kenya and provides visitors wonderful game viewing throughout the year. Birdlife is also prolific with over 420 recorded species. There are five different habitats in Amboseli: open plains, acacia woodland, thorn scrub, swamps and marshlands. Each habitat attracts a huge diversity of game, from zebra, warthog, giraffe, buffalo, and impala to wildebeest, cheetah, lion and more abundantly, elephant. The oldest and most studied elephant population in sub-Saharan Africa lives here. Chyulu Hills is 190 kilometres southeast of Nairobi. This area is relatively undisturbed with indigenous vegetation and abundant wildlife. Both regions offer outstanding wildlife viewing, authentic African culture and an unforgettable African safari holiday.
