You will pass through private ranches and expansive savannah grasslands with numerous gazelles and giraffes. You can actually see these animals close to the road against the dawn sunlight and wet dew on the grass. It’s a great drive with wildlife on both sides of the road.

Emali Junction Stop Over

You will get to the Emali turn off at 7:00am and stop for a bathroom break. The air is fresh outside and the highway buzzing with trucks going to Nairobi and Mombasa. The stop over place is also a curio shop and you can sample a lot of the artifacts that you may want to buy now or on your way back.

This road goes all the way to the Kenyan/Tanzanian border town of Loitoktok which is actually located at the base of Kilimanjaro. You will drive along this road westwards and Mt Kilimanjaro might pop up at any moment here. You are advised to take pictures of the mountain anytime you get a glimpse of it since that may be the only chance you may get.

The drive lasts about an hour and you turn off at the Wildlife service sigh post for Amboseli after imbirikani on the right. This is the end of the paved road and you will tackle the next 18km on the rough road to the gate. You will get to the gate at about 8:30am and start the game drive. If the mountain is out, you can now see it very close as it is along the park boundary.

The View of Kilimanjaro in an Amboseli National Park Day Tour

The mountain stands majestically above all else in the park and it’s a great view when you look at the blue snow covered peak Kibo and Mawenzi. The peaks point upwards into the blue space above with the snow simmering in the morning sun. The Kilimanjaro stands above all the animals and the best poster picture of an African safari is one of a herd of elephants, giraffes or zebra grazing in front of the mountain with the blue and white silhouette of the mountain in the background.

Game Drive in Amboseli National Park Day Tour

A game drive in Amboseli is a very exciting affair as you can see hundreds of elephants here which are a key attraction. The elephants in Amboseli are more than 1600 and they are everywhere in the park especially near the swamps. You will drive through about 70km of game drive tracks inside the park as you take pictures of wildlife.

The animals to see in an Amboseli national park game drive here include the elephants, lions, cheetahs, gazelles, hippos, elands, buffaloes, leopards, hyenas, jackals, wildebeests, zebra, giraffes, waterbucks among many others.

Lions are hard to see but sometimes you are lucky and find a mating pair or a family on a kill and you spend hours with them. The cheetahs are easier to see as they are mostly found around the same area. Sometimes adolescent elephants can be seen spurring right on the road in front of your car. Be sure to take pictures of these animals against the backdrop of the Kilimanjaro as its stands majestically above everything. It’s the single most popular attraction in Africa besides the pyramids of Egypt. The Amboseli national park day trip safari is so symbolic of an African travel that it is a keeper.
