Highlights of a 2 Days Kilimanjaro and Amboseli Safari Tour

The view of Majestic Mt Kilimanjaro

The Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in the whole of Africa standing at an impressive 5895m above sea level. The Kilimanjaro is the highest single standing volcanic equatorial mountain in the world. It pays to see the highest peak in Africa and is a milestone of sorts. The view of Mawenzi and Kibo peaks on Kilimanjaro is one of the most exhilarating views in Africa. The ice covered peak Kibo juts upwards into the blue sky with simmering snow on the blue bald head.

The Kilimanjaro foot extends for several kilometers but one can circumnavigate the base in a single day. The mountain slopes change from a blue hue from a distance to a green gentle slope as you come closer to it. The best wildlife pictures representing the African safari are those with afew elephants grazing in front of the imposing Mt Kilimanjaro in the background.

This mountain also provides the millions of gallons of clear, clean and cool waters in Amboseli national park. Wildlife also comes together in this park during dry weather since the swamps of Amboseli have clean water all year round. The elephants like to drink water from the source where it emerges from underground rivers inside the Amboseli park.

Other Attractions In A Kilimanjaro 2 Days Safari Tour

The observation hill is a great place to climb and watch the park from a vantage point to see the hippos in the pools below, the elephants wading in water, the Kilimanjaro at a short distant, the lake Amboseli and the vast grasslands. The observation hill is a great place to take vantage point pictures of the park where you can have a 360 degrees view of everything inside Amboseli.

The lake Amboseli is also a great feature especially during the dry season when it forms mirages at its edges. Wildlife looking for water are deceived by these mirages that look like water simmering at the distance. The animals keep crossing the dry lake bed over and over looking for the elusive water.

The park is also known for its whirl winds during the day that can number up to 10 at the exact same moment. The swamp areas are also full of life and activity and its not had to see a small kingfisher bird swallowing a fish twice its size, or a pride of lions feasting on a dead hippo, a fish eagle making a dive into the water for fish and a snake wrapped around an acacia tree just near the water.
