Overview Desciption

Amboseli National Park
The Amboseli National Park is located in the Maasai area. Amboseli means "salt earth" in Masai, because of the Alkali waters. The park is known as the best place in Africa to see elephants and other animals up close. In the Amboseli National Park you can also get acquainted with the Maasai, and you also have a view of Kilimanjaro, the largest free-standing mountain in the world. The Amboseli Park has a very diverse vegetation, which sometimes has a varying character.
The Amboseli National Park covers an area of 392 square kilometers and is a game reserve. The park is known for the best places to see elephants and other animal species, such as buffalo, giraffes, zebras, lions and hippos, up close. Do you like to see birds? More than 400 species of birds live in Amboseli National Park! Amboseli park is also located in the Masai area, so there is also an opportunity to get to know the Maasai tribe.

Kilimanjaro
Amboseli National Park offers incredible views of Kilimanjaro, next to Tanzania. The famous mountain has 2 recognizable peaks, Kibo and Mawensi, which are always covered with snow. During the day you can hardly see the snowy peaks, because they are covered with clouds. The snowy peaks are best visible in the early morning, which is why Netherken organizes the excursions and hikes before sunrise.

Environment and animals
The meltwater of Kilimanjaro creates many grassy swamps and fields full of papyrus plants. The environment is therefore breathtaking, and provides a variety of wildlife. You may encounter the following animals in the Amboseli National Park: Lions, elephants, leopards, zebras, hippos, giraffes, hyenas, gazelles, ostriches and much more! The vegetation is very diverse and that all has to do with the availability of water and the salinity of the water. For example, reeds normally grow along the shores of Lake Amboseli, but the lake has now largely dried up.
