OVERVIEW ON AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK IN KENYA
The Amboseli outback is a majestic landscape where events such as these unfolds every day across the 392 square kilometers (151 square miles) of protected wilderness. The park borders Tanzania and is situated at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest peak, and the melting snow flows into underground springs that feed the swamps and wetlands that dot the plains. These water sources attract animals of all sizes, the most sought-after being– the free-roaming elephants, but you may also see elands, waterbucks, grant's gazelles, warthogs, coke's hartebeests, zebras and other grazing herbivores. The abundance of large prey supports lions, leopards, civets, wildcats and other elusive hunters, as well as jackals, hyenas and other scavengers. Your guide will also help you locate and identify yellow and olive baboons and black-face vervet monkeys. A bird watching vacation in Amboseli Park gives you the chance to record your observations of commonly sighted grey-crowned cranes, superb starlings, beautiful sunbird, secretarybird and several more of the 425 feathered resident and migratory species. One of the best vantage points that will give you a true appreciation of the immense natural beauty of Amboseli is the Observation Hill, a perfect location for sundowners, and the stunning sunsets are not to missed by photographers. The proud Maasai people continue to live outside the park borders, following their ancient traditions and tending to their cherished cattle. AfricanMecca Safaris highly recommends that you visit an authentic village during your exploratory cultural tour in this expanse of East Africa.

BEST TIME TO VISIT AMBOSELI
Little to no rainfall occurs during the dry season from July to October, and we consider this to be the best time of year to visit Amboseli Park; however, the rains bring renewed life to the plains.
