Amboseli & Tsavo

About Amboseli & Tsavo

Amboseli, in the south of Kenya, is famous for views of the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, just over the border in Tanzania, and for its elephant herds, a combination of the two making for great photo opportunities. The park is a mix of swamps, woodland and areas of open plains and as well as elephants is home to hippos, buffaloes, giraffes, wildebeests and zebras. Birdwatchers will not be disappointed with the numerous species found here which include kingfishers, herons, pygmy falcons and secretary birds stalking through the grass.

Tsavo East National Park, the largest park in Kenya and renowned for its elephant herds, is predominantly flat, open plains in contrast to the neighbouring Tsavo West National Park which is characterised by woodland, volcanic hills and lava flows. A major attraction here is the Mzima Springs where a nature trail takes you to an underwater viewing chamber from where you may be able to see hippos. Like Tsavo East, elephants are found here in large numbers as well as lions, giraffes, buffaloes and various antelope species.
