Amboseli lies south of Nairobi at the foot of Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. The snow capped peak of Kilimanjaro rising above a saucer of clouds dominates every aspect of the reserve and provides a backdrop to a spectacular display of wildlife –lion, elephant, leopard, rhino, cheetah, buffalo and a host of plains game.
The Tanzania border runs along its base and also forms the boundary of the park. Amboseli has five main wildlife habitats: open plains, acacia woodland, rocky thorn bush area, swamps and marshland, and a temporary lake, Lake Amboseli, that floods when the area receives heavy rainfall and attracts an amazing variety of birds.
The nearby Chyulu Hills are a chain of volcanic hills ideal for activities such as hiking and horse riding safaris.

Where to Stay
You will note that we present our accommodation options in a slightly different way, Instagram style. You won't find lengthy descriptions and information on how many hair dryers there are in your bedroom. We let the pictures do the talking. We prefer to get to know you, your likes and your quotation will include our detailed hotel recommendations and information (including hairdryers!).
