Amboseli National Park, Kilimanjaro's kingdom
Towered over by the magnificent bulk of Mount Kilimanjaro (5,896 m), Africa's highest mountain, Amboseli is one of Kenya's oldest, famous and most-visited parks. Endlessly panoramic, yet comparatively compact, it is dotted with emerald green swamps in which great herds of elephant wallow; half submerged in the papyrus grasses. The permanent marshlands also provide a potent draw to hippos and buffaloes, while offering a haven for the abundant water birds. An International Biosphere Reserve, the park largely constitutes the usually dried-out lakebed of Lake Amboseli, which is surrounded by flat grasslands relieved by very few trees. On the plains are numerous antelopes, spotted hyenas, jackals, warthogs, olive baboons and vervet monkeys. Lions are rare. Observation Hill, a conical peak, which is easily climbed, offers stunning views of Mount Kilimanjaro.
This luxurious tented lodge offers 60 modern tents with views of Kilimanjaro. Spacious and presented in luxurious style, the tents have ensuite bathrooms (with flushed WC, hot showers, basins). Also provided are: coffee and tea making facilities, fridge, fan, hair drier and electronic safe deposit boxes.
Dining and bars
The main dinning room has a sitting capacity of 120, but meals can also be enjoyed at on your private veranda, or in the spacious lounge and bar area.
The camp welcomes children.

No longer present in their original numbers, lions can still be found in Amboseli though the famous black-maned lions have long since disappeared, as have the black rhinos that were once so plentiful.
