Kenya’s natural beauty knows no bounds, and Amboseli National Park is one of the best places to explore it to the fullest. Safely tucked away near the Tanzanian border, this natural area is known for its abundant wildlife, and here are a few reasons why you should put it on your bucket list.

Local Villages

Amboseli is one of the best places in Kenya to visit the members of the Maasai community living in local villages. They’re best known for their traditional customs, dances, and clothing, which haven’t been affected by Africa’s modernization.

Amazing Wildlife

Most people visiting this national park are there to explore its wildlife. This area is known for being home to free-ranging elephants and it offers one the best wildlife-viewing experiences in the world, where you’ll come face to face with giraffes, zebras, and many other animals.

Bird Watching

Passionate bird watchers will also feel right at home in Amboseli. This national park is home to 400 species of birds ranging from pelicans and crakes to dozens of different raptor species.

Beautiful Views

It’s pretty much impossible to take a photo of Amboseli without getting Mount Kilimanjaro in the frame, and the beautiful views at this mountain are one of the main reasons why people visit it in the first place.
