Situated on the southern side of Kenya, near the Tanzanian border, Amboseli is a very popular tourist destination. The region’s great drawing card is the Amboseli National Park, a reserve that not only boasts a spectacular variety of wildlife, but also Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa at 5,985m (19,340 ft). The park alone has five distinct habitats, each of which supports a very different ecosystem. The area offers a choice of various lodges, each of which makes the most of its splendid surroundings.
