LARGE HERDS OF ELEPHANTS
The name Amboseli comes from the Maasai word salt dust, referring to the red soil used by elephants as a sunscreen. In addition to countless zebras, wildebeests, lions, hyenas, and cheetahs, you will also see a lot of elephants walking around in Amboseli National Park. Don’t be surprised if you see large herds of Elephants wandering the plains here – they love their big families!
JUMP ON THE BACK OF THE BIKE!
As a seasoned adventurer, are you tired of normal self-drive safari’s? No problem! Show everyone how cool you are and jump on the back of a motorbike with one of the Maasai warriors, and ride around the park together. Fun Fact: Sure, the rangers have created beautiful boundaries within the park, but do you think animals stick to it? Of course not! These wonderful animals go whether they please – even if that means another park! Don’t be surprised if, during your drive between Nairobi and Mombasa, you find yourself waiving at an elephant!
WHERE TO REST AFTER A DAY OF ADVENTURING?
Amboseli is a popular tourist park and has a variety of options when it comes to accommodation. You can choose to sleep in a luxury lodge, a relaxing and atmospheric safari tent or, a special homestay with a local family. Don’t forget to reward yourself with an ice-cold drink after a long, but fun day of safari! Cheers!
