Amboseli Adventures

Discover the majestic fusion of wilderness, adventure and culture

At the foot of the Kilimanjaro and at the outskirts of the popular Amboseli National Park are conservancies and group ranches supported by AET. These are leading community conservation efforts and expanding the land available for wildlife as they move along ancient migratory routes between protected parks and reserves.

They are also providing the astute tourist an opportunity to traverse the exquisite blend of semi-arid savanna and marshlands. Here, you experience the ecosystem’s high density of Africa’s largest land animal, the elephant, donning some of the largest tusk sizes in the continent.

Besides the elephants, the landscape provides a chance to spot Africa’s largest cat, the lion. It is a sight to behold as it saunters through the plains towering with giraffes and dotted with hippos, gerenuks, herds of zebras and wildebeests. One also takes in the rich culture of the local Maasai community against the backdrop of the Kilimanjaro.

Some of the best times for sighting the mammals of Amboseli are during the months of June to October, when they gather around the limited sources of water on the landscape.

Birdwatching is best done around November to January, when the migratory birds pay the ecosystem a visit.
