Amboseli National Park

What we love about
Amboseli

Amboseli National Park, a natural wonderland almost as large as Delaware and Rhode Island combined, is famous for its abundance of game, classic quality of lodges and camps, and its beguiling views of the monarch of Africa thrusting three dizzying miles above the parks grasslands, Mount Kilimanjaro. The glaciers atop the huge mountain, probably the largest single peak on earth, are still up there, and the mountain is often dusted with snow. As Peter Matthiessen wrote in The Tree Where Man Was Born, “A snow peak in the tropics draws the heart to a fine shimmering painful point of joy.”

• “The morally edifying” sight of Amboseli’s famous elephants, which made Isak Dinesen feel “that I had been shown black stone sculptures of the four major Prophets.”

• Leisurely, unscripted game drives, reminders that no matter how many times we’ve seen lions, and giraffes, and elephants, it’s only when we see them up close, in their natural home, that we recognize them for the almost unearthly creatures they are.
