AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK
Home to the African elephants, Amboseli National Park, is crowned by Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak. Among the popular parks, the name “Amboseli” is a Maasai word signifying “Salty dust.”
Do you want to view a large herd of elephants closely? Wanderlust Africa Ventures has something for you. Amboseli National Park has something for nature lovers. You get a chance to view five various habitats ranging from the sulphur springs wetlands, the dried-up bed of Lake Amboseli, the savannah and woodlands. Consider visiting the local Maasai community who dwell around the park and get a chance to witness their authentic culture.
The park offers a sensational experience with plains traversed by lions, hyenas, wildebeests, and big-tusked elephants. Besides wildlife, the park scenic beauty is difficult to ignore. No one wants to miss the vast open savannahs and the skyline that’s dominated by Mt Kilimanjaro.
The few minutes’ flight from Nairobi, Amboseli is among the hottest safari locations with outstanding wildlife within the enchanting scenery. The 40,000-hectare park is generally dry and peppered with a couple of permanent lakes and swamps that draw animals from across the park.
You want to experience the diverse and abundant of Amboseli wildlife. Get ready to see the herds of zebra, wildebeest, Maasai giraffes and gazelle crisscrossing the plains while the large cats stalk their prey or lounge in the shade.
During the game drive, you might even come across the rare oryx and gerenuk. Do you love bird watching? Here, the activity is rewarding as you have to view a wide range of unique species and beautiful water birds.
But the African elephants steal the show. After studying their huge herds, Dr. Cynthina Moss has made the animals famous since 1972. There’re over 1400 elephants, and that’s the reason the park stands out in Africa for those seeking to view the giants at a close range.
But private conservancies in the park still offer the same wildlife without the crowds. Qualified and greatly trained guides lead the excursion and share the vast knowledge with you. Are you envisioning for a tailor-made luxury trip to Amboseli? Get in touch to start planning with one of our experts.
Covering a bigger area than the Island of Jamaica, Tsavo is home to great game populations. Besides, its sheer size makes the wildlife experience rewarding. You want to view the exceptional slighting of red elephants which are stained by the ochre-rich soil.
The park is an ideal and massive attraction if you’re seeking to enjoy your safari holiday. You will undoubtedly view the magnificent peaks of Mt Kilimanjaro at dawn or dusk while the low hanging clouds thin to reveal the iced summit.
The backdrop has made the park to be among the most toured in Kenya. You want to view the expanse of volcanic soils that host parched dry lake beds and green vegetation. The swamp and marsh areas result from underground springs that water the surface via porous soil. During wet seasons, its depth rarely exceeds a few feet; hence, the mirage of the shimmering lake.
With its beautiful scenery, Amboseli National Park is thus a must-go place. Just get in touch with Wanderlust Africa Ventures and our planners will do the rest!
