Eyes on beautiful Amboseli

Amboseli is incredibly beautiful and remains one of my favourite safari destinations in Kenya. The national park covers 392 kmand has a diverse ecosystem.

There is a seasonal lake, swamps, thorny bushes and some woodland. In addition to several species of both flora and fauna calling the national park home, it is home to large herds of elephants.

Last time I checked they are over 900 thus gaining the name The Land of the Giants-and rightfully so. The jewel of Amboseli’ s crown has to be the breathtaking view of the majestic Mt.Kilimanjaro towering over the land.

Activities to do in Amboseli

The number one thing you must do while in Amboseli is going on game drives in the National park.

Hiking the Observation Hill is also a must, the panoramic view of the park from the hilltop is incredible. You get to see the swamp and wildlife roaming freely. 

Cultural visits to Maasai villages can also be arranged by your accommodation of choice.

Savour the views of Africa’s highest peak especially in the morning before it gets cloudy.

Is lounging in the lodge an activity? If so, add it to this list.

Where to stay in Amboseli

There are plenty of places to stay at, ranging from budget to luxury. So you can stay wherever you want depending on your budget. I stayed at Sentrim Amboseli and it was lovely.

For accommodation options check out Airbnb, Booking.com, TripAdvisor and Jumia Travel.

I hope the photos will inspire you to visit the land of the giants and fall in love with Amboseli as much as I did.


You can expect such a sight as the elephants move around. I am always amazed by this majestic animals! Did you know elephants are among the most intelligent species in the world?
