About Amboseli National Park
The park provides the classic Hollywood image of Africa. Set in rolling Savannah dwarfed by the presence of the pink-tinged, snow-capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro which ,at 5,896 meters, is the highest free -standing mountain in the world by one fifth of all the ice in Africa. Against this magnificent back-drop roam vast hoards of elephant accompanied but a kaleidoscope of other fabulous beasts, lion, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, baboon, gazelle hippo and wildebeest to name but a few. There are also over 400 species of birds, all manner of reptilian, flora and fauna and some of the most soul –searing views in Africa.
