Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park is probably Kenyas second most visited park behind Masai Mara. The main attraction is its backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro. If conditions are right you can get amazing shots of elephants or lions with the tallest mountain in Africa in the background. The park probably has more elephants per square km than any other, so you’re sure to have close encounters with the huge animals.
To get to the park, most visitors cut south just outside of Nairobi and go through the town of Namanga. Its also possible to approach from Tsavo to the east, but you should have a 4WD vehicle.

Theres only one campsite in the area on the southern boundary of the park. As lodges go, there are several options inside the park, or if you want to save on park fees, there are also several places outside of the park. Inside the park try Tortilis Camp, situated in one of the most beautiful spots in the park.
