Amboseli National Park and Chyulu Hills

Amboseli lies immediately north-west of Mount Kilimanjaro, on the border with Tanzania. The Park covers 392 square km, and forms part of the much larger 3,000 square km Amboseli ecosystem. The snow-capped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro rises above a saucer of clouds and provides the most iconic and majestic views of the world's highest free-standing mountain.

It's probably one of the most photographed wildlife areas in the world. You'll see it typically showing huge herds of game pictured in front of the backdrop of snow-capped Kili.

Despite its small size and fragile ecosystem, it supports an extensive array of mammals and birds.

Chyulu Hills National Park is a sprawling chain of mountains astonishing in their natural beauty that sits tucked away between Tsavo West National Park and Amboseli National Park, preserving an essential migratory corridor.

The park is home to an abundant diversity of wildlife including elephant, buffalo, giraffe, leopard, giant forest hog, lion, wildebeest and zebra.

Chyulu Hills offers some of the best views of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
