Amboseli One Day Group Tour Attractions

The biggest attraction in Amboseli is the view of Mt Kilimanjaro which is located just next to the park boundary but on the Tanzanian side of the border. Amboseli day excursion is therefore the best bet to see the Kilimanjaro without necessarily hiking up the mountain. You will be able to view the top of the mountain with its ice capped peak kibo.

Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa standing at 5895m above sea level. This makes it a must see if you are ever in Africa and more so as close to it as Nairobi. Amboseli is only 280km from Nairobi to the south west and this trip can be done in a single day which makes it a must visit if only to take pictures of this very important landmark in Africa.
