In the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro and under the watchful eye of its many elephants, your breath stills and the focus stirs as you ready yourself to capture that exact moment a herd of elephant crosses your field of view. Finally, the click of the shutter disrupts the otherwise silent air just as the snow-capped Kilimanjaro frames your perfect shot; your Amboseli safari isn’t just about the wildlife species you can tick off your list, it’s also about taking in the park’s epic backdrops as you do. Dusty plains dotted with acacia trees meet the deep greens of meltwater-fed marshes and swamps where elephants in large family herds wade elbow deep and a crash of hippos wallow, all with the world’s highest free-standing mountain as an ever-present and inspiring landmark.
A wildlife photographer’s dream, Amboseli National Park offers the chance to see large herds of elephants
and graceful giraffe against the iconic backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain.
Towards the centre of the park are a series of swamps, fed by the underground rivers running off the mountain. It is here, closer to the water,
that the concentration of wildlife intensifies, from the ever present ponderous herds of elephant to abundant birdlife.
This includes a wide variety of water birds such as Grey Heron, Saddle bill Stork, Egyptian Goose as well as Long-toed Lapwing.
Yellow throated Sand Grouse and up to 6 species of Vulture. The rare Madagascar Squacco Heron is a frequent visitor.
