The grasslands of Amboseli provide the perfect location to spot some of Africa's best wildlife due to the sparse vegetation and long dry periods. You can hope to find African elephant, cape buffalo, impala, lion, cheetah, hyena, giraffe, zebra, and wildebeest among others roaming wild throughout the park.
A great place to note is Observation Hill which allows an overall view of the park, especially the swamps and elephants. The swamp below provides a great chance to watch the variety of water fowls including pelican and Egyptain goose.
Amboseli is also host to many birds in general, with common sightings of kingfishers, crakes, hammerkops and 47 types of raptor. Other attractions of the park include opportunities to meet the Maasai and interchange culture, and of course, the spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro.
