Enjoy Amboseli National Park day tour from Nairobi from Nairobi with Kichaka Tours. This day trip leaves Nairobi very early in the morning, driving along the Mombasa – Nairobi highway. It is best to depart before dawn to get to Amboseli in good time for game viewing.
Amboseli National Park, arguably the second most popular animal park after Masai Mara, is 260km (160 miles) from Nairobi, on the border with the neighboring country of Tanzania. Its magnificent situation at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, combined with its excellent opportunities to view Kenya’s animals, make it one of the best places for safaris.
Crowned by Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, the Amboseli National Parks is indeed one of Kenya’s most popular parks. The name “Amboseli” comes from a Maasai word meaning “salty dust”. It is one of the best places in Africa to view large herds of elephants up close. 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. They can also visit the local Maasai community who live around the park and experience their authentic culture.
The great mountain forms a backdrop to most photographers picture and on a clear day. Cheetah, lion, and hyena can also be seen on the salt flat. Elephants abound in the forest and swamps, feeding on the lush papyrus and other grasses.
Safari Game drives on in the Amboseli also provide a truly refreshing encounter of watching the sunrise and sunset in exceptional hues of colour change over the horizon. It is dry and covered by dust from recurrent winds, which create a “dust devil” phenomenon. This happens from time to time depending on the changes in atmospheric pressure.
Amboseli is renowned for its large herds of free-ranging African elephants. There are over 900 African elephants in Amboseli, as well as huge herds of wildebeests and many other animals including giraffes, African lions, monkeys, zebras, hyenas and antelope.
With its awesome view of Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli National Park offers a unique and breathtaking backdrop for viewing Africa’s animals. It also has a dry Pleistocene lake basin that houses a temporary lake, Lake Amboseli, after the rains.
