Beautiful Amboseli

Kenya’s Amboseli National Park is a relatively small one, but it packs a lot in: views of Kilimanjaro just across the border in Tanzania, and all the iconic species of Kenya. These photos are highlights from a day spent in Amboseli in March 2019.

See also my photos of lions on the hunt and friendly elephants, both from the same day in Amboseli as well.

Amboseli's friendly elephants

One of the most extraordinary things about Kenya’s Amboseli National Park is just how friendly the elephants are. You have to keep a safe distance, of course, but as I was driving along (doing a self-drive safari in my Rav4) the elephants there seemed less perturbed by my presence than pretty much anywhere else.

Amboseli - lions on the hunt

Kenya’s Amboseli National Park is famous for its views of Mount Kilimanjaro—just across the border in Tanzania—towering above rich wildlife. On my first visit to Amboseli, I saw several lionesses surrounding and then scattering a herd of wildebeest.
