Set on the slopes of the Chyulu Hills, which separate Amboseli and Tsavo West National Parks, we recommend using Ol Donyo Lodge as a base, whose rooms are all uniquely appointed. The area surrounding Ol Donyo is exclusively reserved for guests, and the lodge organises excellent game drives into the Amboseli and Maasai community visits.
Set in the shadow of the majestically looming Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli National Park in Southern Kenya combines stunning scenery with prolific game wildlife roaming its plains. Backed by the silhouette of Africa’s highest mountain, this culminates in some of Africa’s most distinctive and quintessential imagery. With excellent year-round sightings and such enviable landscapes, it is understandably one of Kenya’s most attractive areas for safari exploration and can be busy during the popular months between July and October.
Situated an hour's flight from Nairobi, or four hours by vehicle due southeast, Amboseli is fairly compact compared to other parks in Kenya, covering a total area of 392 square kilometres within the Rift Valley Province.
