Amboseli National Park is one of the premium national parks that is located in the Southern part of the country bordering Tanzania. With snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro ever-present in the background on a clear day, the park (392 sq. Kms), is justly famous for its big game and scenic beauty. Mount Kilimanjaro, standing at 5,895 meters above sea level is the highest single mountain in the world and the highest part of Africa.
Amboseli is home to great herds of elephants and game viewing is particularly easy in this Park. Other notable animals found in numbers there include buffalo, wildebeest, giraffe, zebra, gazelle, and other plains game.
