The Amboseli National Park lays North West of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro – Africa’s highest Mountain. From Amboseli, it is possible to engage in a scenic flight to see the top of the Mount Kilimanjaro. The name Amboseli is a Maasai word which means place of dust. Indeed herds of elephants can be spotted covering themselves in dust or wallowing in the swamp which is full of birdlife. Covered by savannah and acacia trees, the open flat plains are ideal places to search for the wildebeests, buffaloes, cheetahs, lions, hyenas, zebras, hippos etc. The two permanent water springs are underground seepage from the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro which the Park has as its magnificent backdrop. Large wildlife concentration mostly occurs here in dry season because of permanent swamps. Indeed there is no place in the world where game drives are possible with the backdrop of the Africa’s highest mountain.
