Elephants-AmboseliThe Amboseli National Park Road Trip

Your tour starts before sunrise and you will pick you lunch from a Nairobi hotel and then drive southwards on the Mombasa –Nairobi Highway. Dawn will get you on the way and you will start to see the gazelles, zebras and giraffes grazing by the road side in the grassland savannahs. It’s amazing to see these animals feeding in the wet dew against the golden sunrays of dawn. You will drive down the highway watching the great grassland and hilly landscape by the roadside.

Emali Stop Over

Emali is a small town enroute to the park located some 2hrs from Nairobi. You will make a stop over here for a bathroom stop and they have a curio shop where you can sample some artifacts to buy on your way back from Amboseli.

AMBOSELI-NATIONAL-PARKFrom Emali you will travel westwards on Loitoktok road which goes towards the Tanzanian border. You will cover another 1.5hrs to get to the Imbirikani junction and turn left at the Wildlife service sign post for Amboseli national park. From here, it’s a rough road for 18km to the Ilimito gate. The Kilimanjaro may pop out anywhere from Emali town and your driver will stop and let you take pictures as that may be the only chance you get. Kilimanjaro is a very shy mountain which likes to hide away a lot.

You will be at the Irimito gate by 9:00am and start your game drive. The Amboseli national park is drier on the approach but it gets wetter and greener as you approach the Kilimanjaro mountain right ahead. You will start to see the savannah animals like gazelles, zebras, elands, and wildebeests and the many others are found closer to the swamps.

Viewing of Mt Kilimanjaro on a Day Trip

Mt Kilimanjaro stands tall among everything else in Amboseli. The mountain is 5895metres above sea level and is the highest point in the whole of Africa. Mt Kilimanjaro is also the highest free standing volcanic and equatorial mountain in the whole world. The mountain peak Kibo and Mawenzi can be seen from far away. The peak kibo is visible as a bald blue top covered by white snow on the sides and jutting into the clear blue space above into oblivion. The morning view is just great as you can see the snow simmering in white vapour as it melts with the dawn sun rays.

The view of Kilimanjaro Mountain is one of the signature poster pictures of an authentic African safari. One of the most popular pictures of an African safari is one of the elephants and other animals grazing in the foreground as the Kilimanjaro Mountain stands high and mighty over everything else. These are the epic pictures as seen by the world famous explorers, travelers and hunters.
