A few years ago, I met a lady who was in Kenya on safari with her family. They had been planning for this trip for a longtime. They went on to have a wonderful safari . We met just before they left for the airport at the end of the trip. One of the highlights of the trip for the lady was visiting Amboseli National Park. As a teenager she had received a postcard with photo of the park from a family friend. Hundreds of big-tusked elephants set against the backdrop of Africa’s highest mountain (Mount Kilimanjaro) .Similar to the picture below….
She had carried the little postcard with her on this trip.She was excited to visit the place that had inspired her trip . Amboseli did not disappoint as she got to see lots of elephants and even got a glimpse of Mount Kilimanjaro. It was a dream come true.
Amboseli National Park is one of Kenya’s most popular parks. The name “Amboseli” is a Masai word meaning “salty dust”. It is an ideal getaway for family and friends. It’s a 4 hours drive from Nairobi. The park is home to large herds of elephants, zebras, giraffes,dik-dik,buffalos and over 500 bird species. You also have a reasonable chance of spotting lions in the park.
In terms of accommodation, there are lovely tented camps and lodges located within and outside the park.
Planning that road trip with your friends and family?? Consider a visit to Amboseli.
Wishing you safe travels.
