Amboseli is set in a stunning location at the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro. When the mountain puts in an appearance from behind the clouds, you won't believe how beautiful it is! Despite the heavy rains just before our arrival, we did see quite a few elephants in the swamps, munching away and staying cool all day. When it rains near Amboseli the animals leave the park because water is plentiful, so it is actually better to come when there hasn't been rain. Besides elephants, we saw numerous birds, as well as cheetahs, lions, zebras, gazelles, hyenas, and much more. Just a warning - the road conditions getting to this park are very poor, so be prepared for a bumpy ride.
