Next up on our epic tour of African National Parks was Amboseli National Park in Kenya. It receives far fewer visitors than many of the parks we had been to – only about 100,000 per year – but this means the animals are less used to people and will walk closer to or indeed straight across the roads where our jeeps traversed the vast plains. In the back of some of the photos you will be able to see Mount Kilimanjaro which is actually across the border in Tanzania.
Amboseli National Park is known for its large elephant herds and we definitely saw quite a few during our visit to the park but there were also gorgeous giraffes, lions, zebras, antelope, cape buffalo, and hundreds of birds. I can already tell you my Dad will say this is one of those posts with too many photos but it was such an incredible place I really want to make sure you feel like you get the full experience and the worst thing that could happen is you decided you have seen enough and go onto another post. 🙂 So without further ado:
So many truly gorgeous creatures! But my favorite part of our time in Amboseli was when we spent an hour watching this gorgeous elephant heard filled with bulls (adult males), mothers, and their babies. Take a look:
Which would be your favorite animal to see in person?
