Amboseli National Park, the second most popular animal park after Masai Mara, is located 160 miles from Nairobi, on the border with the neighboring country of Tanzania. Amboseli National Park covers 392km² (151miles²) and has a mixed topography of plains, acacia woodland, rocky thorn bush, swamps and marshes. Its magnificent location at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, combined with its excellent opportunities to view Kenya's animals, make it one of the most-visited safari parks in Kenya. Amboseli belongs in the elite of Kenya’s national parks, and it’s easy to see why!
Amboseli was declared a national reserve in 1968. It became a national park in 1974. However, in 2005, President Mwai Kibaki transferred control from the Kenya Wildlife Service to the Olkejuedo County Council and its residents, the Masai tribe. This is still being contested in the courts because of its implications that could jeopardize Kenya's other national parks.
Its signature attraction is the sight of hundreds of big-tusked elephants set against the backdrop of Africa’s best views of Mt Kilimanjaro (5,895m). Africa’s highest peak broods over the southern boundary of the park, and while cloud cover can render the mountain’s massive bulk invisible for much of the day, you’ll be rewarded with stunning vistas when the weather clears, usually at dawn and/or dusk.
Apart from guaranteed elephant sightings, you’ll also see wildebeest and zebras, and you’ve a reasonable chance of spotting lions, cheetahs and hyenas.
Amboseli offers some of the best opportunities to see African animals because its vegetation is sparse due to the long dry months. Amboseli has over 80 different mammals to be found ranging from the tiny (and rarely seen) spectacled elephant shrew to the huge bulk of the African elephant. Few visitors will go home without superb elephant pictures with Kilimanjaro as a backdrop. The park is also home to over 370 bird species, both large and small, to see if you keep your eyes open and stop at every sighting.
The National Park embodies five main wildlife habitats (open plains, acacia woodland, rocky thorn bush country, swamps and marshland) and covers part of a Pleistocene lake basin, now dry. Within this basin is a temporary lake, Lake Amboseli, that floods during years of heavy rainfall.

The Laikipia Plateau is a wonderful destination for camel-back safaris!.
Sprawling on the edge of the Northern Kenyan Frontier, stretching from the slopes of Mount Kenya to the rim of the Great Rift Valley, is the Laikipia Plateau. Laikipia is a mid-altitude plateau, which formerly consisted of community land and ranch land. An important wildlife area scattered with a mosaic of farms and cattle ranches, conservationists and ranchers alike have worked together in this wildlife refuge that supports large numbers of game. Steeped in history from the colonial days in Kenya, this is a significant natural area from a safari and conservation perspective.
The Laikipia Plateau is an undiscovered ecosystem of wilderness terrain that covers over two million acres and is home to indigenous Samburu, Kikuyu and Boran tribes.Stretching from the snow-capped slopes of Mount Kenya to the jagged rim of the Great Rift Valley, Laikipia is a vast, two million acre wildlife destination in the equatorial region of Kenya. In size alone, Laikipia is second only to Tsavo, while its wildlife densities and constraint-free safari experiences continue to challenge even that of the famed Maasai Mara.Indeed,The unique and varied habitats here create stunningly scenic landscapes, from arid plains to icy mountains and sweeping hills, making it an excellent choice for the discerning safari enthusiast looking for something authentic, away from the tourist trails. It is estimated that 10% of Kenya’s black rhino community are found here in Lewa, so it is also a good place for Big Five game sighting, whilst avoiding the crowds.
Vast open plains in the shadow of the snow-capped silhouette of Mount Kenya create a tranquil and secluded setting. Ecologically, the plateau is transitional to the central highlands and northern deserts. As such, it provides an important stronghold for rarities such as black rhino, Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe and wild dogs with few other vehicles in sight. It also supports substantial numbers of lion, leopard and cheetah, along with dry-country specials such as reticulated giraffe, greater and lesser kudu, gerenuk and Beisa oryx.

The world-renowned Masai Mara National Reserve needs little in the way of introduction. Its tawny, wildlife-stuffed savannahs are familiar to anyone who has watched nature documentaries.The reserve is located in the Great Rift Valley in primarily open grassland.
The Maasai Mara (also known as the Masai Mara, and locally simply as The Mara) is a large game reserve in Narok County, Kenya, contiguous with the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. It is named in honor of the Maasai people (the ancestral inhabitants of the area) and their description of the area when looked at from afar: "Mara" means "spotted" in the local Maasai language of Maa, due to the many trees which dot the landscape
When it was originally established in 1961 as a wildlife sanctuary the Mara covered only 520 km2 (200 sq mi) of the current area, including the Mara Triangle. The area was extended to the east in 1961 to cover 1,821 km2 (703 sq mi) and converted to a game reserve. The Greater Mara Ecosystem encompasses areas known as the Maasai Mara National Reserve, the Mara Triangle, and several Maasai Conservancies
It is world-renowned for its exceptional populations of lions, leopards, cheetahs and elephant, and the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, Thomson's gazelle and other antelope, to and from the Serengeti every year known as the Great Migration.There have been some 95 species of mammals, amphibians and reptiles and over 400 birds species recorded on the reserve. Reliable rains and plentiful vegetation underpin this extraordinary ecosystem and the millions of herbivores it supports. The Masai Mara is a unique area with a constant and unrivaled flow of wildlife throughout the year.
From July to October the Mara becomes a backdrop for one of the last great natural wonders of the world, when 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra surge up from the Serengeti plains in their annual search for the seasonal grasses that sustain them. Wildebeest, zebras, impalas, elephants, Masai giraffes and several species of gazelle all call the Mara home. This vast concentration of game accounts for high predator numbers, including cheetahs, leopards and the highest lion densities in the world.
The spectacle as the vast herds cross rivers and sweep through the golden grasses, is punctuated by individual struggles with predators, which are in turn drawn to take their part in this dramatic event. While the migration is spectacular, game viewing at all other times of the year remains almost unrivalled anywhere in Africa.
The camp is set within Kenya’s legendary Masai Mara Game Reserve, surrounded by some of the world’s best game-viewing areas. It has a great location overlooking the Mara River - Guests have the luxury of spending maximum time at designated river crossings because of the camps’ close proximity to the river.

From the shaded seclusion of this attractively-designed camp, guests can relax and admire unforgettable views over the Mara River and across expansive plains, with the distant backdrops of undulating hills.
