Amboseli National Park

Located in the southeast of Kenya, Amboseli National Park’s defining feature is the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak.

Towering Peaks,
Land of the Giants

The park was established in 1974 and has a great history as one of the oldest protected areas in Kenya. Renowned for its large herds of big-tusked elephants and rich variety of wildlife including giraffe, zebra, buffalo, cheetah and lion, the name Amboseli comes from a Maasai word meaning ‘salty dust’ and refers to the vast, seasonal alkaline Lake Amboseli that is dry and dusty for most of the year and which dominates the western section of the park. The park is renowned for its diverse ecosystem encompasses sprawling savannahs, expansive grasslands, acacia woodlands, marshes, and seasonal lakes. 

Authentic Maasai Culture, Scenic Landscapes, Volcanic Hills

Amboseli National Park shares its borders with Maasai communities, providing a unique opportunity to experience the rich culture and traditions of the Maasai people. Cultural visits and interactions allow a glimpse into their daily lives, traditional ceremonies, vibrant artistry, and ancient wisdom, adding an enriching dimension to the safari experience. Ol Doinyo Orok is a volcanic hill that rewards hikers with panoramic views of the park. Amboseli is made up of distinctly different habitats, from the dust-ridden bed of the lake to lush wetlands with Sulphur springs, savannah grassland and woodland thickets. It’s Kenya’s second most popular national park after the Maasai Mara and can be explored by guided walks or game drives.


Amboseli National Park has a select number of lodges and camps personally vetted by us, which offer the perfect base from which to explore that area.
