This is a tour South of Kenya to a park located right at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro the highest volcanic mountain in Africa, Amboseli National Park. The name "Amboseli" comes from a Maasai word meaning "salty dust", and it is one of the best places in Africa to view large herds of elephants up close. Nature lovers can explore five different habitats here ranging from the dried-up bed of Lake Amboseli, wetlands with sulphur springs, the savannah, and woodlands. Africas highest peak broods over the southern boundary of the park, and while cloud cover can render the mountains massive bulk invisible for much of the day, youll be rewarded with stunning vistas when the weather clears, usually at dawn and/or dusk. Apart from guaranteed elephant sightings, youll also see wildebeest and zebras, and you have a reasonable chance of spotting lions, cheetahs and hyenas. The park is also home to over 370 bird species, and it has an excellent array of lodges and an agreeably mild, dry climate.
