But game viewing doesn’t get a lot more real than crouching a few yards from the banks of the Mara River seeing wildebeest crossing the raging torrent a matter of yards below you. This kind of experience is a possibility in certain wilderness areas of the Serengeti where only a small number of responsible operators are granted access. Walks can be for an hour or two in the morning or evening, or, for the more adventurous they can be over a period of days, supported with a light camp.

    Amboseli National Park

     

    Amboseli National Park, formerly Maasai Amboseli Game Reserve, southern Kenya eastern Africa. Amboseli was originally established as a game reserve in 1948 and covered 1,259 square miles (3,261 square km) northwest of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Within it were distinguished seven habitats: open plains, acacia woodland, lava-strewn thorn bush country, swamp, marshland, the Amboseli lake bed, and the slopes of Oldoinyo Orok. Historically, the land in the reserve was home to the Maasai and their cattle herds. In 1974 a little more than 10 percent of the reserve was established as the Amboseli National Park, with an area of 151 square miles (392 square km). Centred on Lake Amboseli, normally dry with a flat basin of alkaline soils, the park encompasses three of the original seven habitats: open plains, thorn bush country, and acacia woodland. A great variety of wildlife inhabits the park. Important fauna include baboons, lions, cheetahs, elephants, black rhinoceroses, hippopotamuses, Maasai giraffes, buffalo, oryx, wildebeests, gerenuk, impalas, and gazelles. In 2005 the Kenyan government announced its intentions to give the park back to local Maasai people; the park’s status was to revert back to being a reserve and would then be managed by a local council. However, conservationists mounted a legal challenge against the government’s action, and the transfer was halted. The Amboseli Conservation Program (ACP) began in 1967 when David Western studied the ecology of the Maasai Amboseli National Reserve to address a deep conflict over its status and future. Conservationists, insistent that overgrazing was destroying Amboseli’s famous fever tree woodland and its wildlife, were pressing the government to create a national park and exclude the Maasai. The Kajiado County Council rejected the claim and insisted on control of the reserve and its tourist revenues.

     

    Recognizing the role of pastoralists in the ecosystem, Western studied the interplay of livestock and wildlife, and showed the importance of seasonal migrations and the drought refuges of the Amboseli basin in sustaining their abundance and coexistence. Based on these findings, he proposed that the Maasai should establish a small core park nested within a larger ecosystem that sustained the migrations and the coexistence of people and wildlife. The proposal drew in anthropologists, political scientists, and economists from the University of Nairobi’s Institute of Development Studies, the warden, Daniel Sindiyo, members of the Maasai community and the Kajiado County Council. The resulting land use plan, produced in 1969, proposed that the pastoral community that had sustained wildlife in Amboseli for generations should be a primary beneficiary of tourism revenues. By 1973 the research studies, land use analysis, planning work, and conservation activities had coalesced into the Amboseli Conservation Program. The program and conservation plan were endorsed and supported by the New York Zoological Society (now Wildlife Conservation Society). If you are dying to see African elephants in large numbers, then the Amboseli National Park is definitely ideal for you. Amboseli has an elephant population of 900, so you will definitely run into a sizeable elephant herd during a game drive. Not only that, you are most likely to get a close look. One more fabulous thing about the Amboseli is the awesome view of Mount Kilimanjaro. You don’t want to miss that. Amboseli has a lot to offer. Obviously the game viewing opportunities are excellent. Not just for elephants, but for many other animal species as well. The opportunities for bird watching are also great. You will definitely enjoy taking photographs of everything just be sure to come with enough batteries and memory so you aren’t disappointed. The views are phenomenal, especially the views of Mt. Kilimanjaro. If you are on Amboseli Camping safari, you will definitely enjoy the camping sites. Of course if you don’t fancy camping there are great hotels in Amboseli. Besides the elephants, visitors get to view the Big 5. One special feature of Amboseli is the Observation Hill, a point from which tourists can view the entire park. Below the observation hill is a swamp that hosts elephants, buffaloes, hippos and also birds like the pelican and the Egyptian goose. Other species in Amboseli are Cheetahs, leopards, wild dogs, rhinos, buffalo, giraffe, lion, zebra, porcupine and 600 different species of birds. Talk about a bird watchers paradise.

     

    For birdwatching safari purposes, the period between October and January is best because of the migratory birds that populate the place. These are red and yellow bishops, buffalo weavers, palm nut vultures, African skimmers and goshawks. This is by no means a complete list. As we have already mentioned, there are over 600 bird species in the Amboseli. For game viewing, the best months are January and February. June and September are also excellent. April and May is not good because it is the rainy season. Between November and December there is also usually a little rain. In case of rain roads become impassable. The Amboseli is located 240km from Nairobi via Namangak, or 228 km via Emali. For tourists travelling in from Mombasa, access is through Tsavo West National Park. Some tourists fly in. here is an airstrip available for that. The Amboseli National park is much smaller than the Mara at 390 km2, and is located in Loitoktok which is in the Rift Valley Province, the largest province in Kenya. Carry plenty of drinking water because you are bound to get thirsty in the sun. Pack a picnic to make your trip more comfortable and enjoyable. For campers, standard camping safaris equipment is important. Binoculars will be very important in your game viewing and enjoying the landscape, pack a good quality camera – with more than one pairs of charged batteries as well as plenty of memory – to take pictures with. A wide brimmed hat is great for sun protection but even with this sunscreen is still very important. A pair of sunglasses would improve your level of comfort. Just like in any wilderness environment, bug spray is very important. Don’t get out of the car and never antagonize the animals – just observe them. Stick to the road tracks and always stop to let animals pass, they enjoy right of way. Should you happen to visit during the wet season, be prepared by having a good car that will not get stuck in the mud. Use a local driver who is familiar with the soil. Wear comfortable clothes because the weather is normally hot and dry.

     

    There are good Amboseli safari lodges both inside and outside the Amboseli. Look up Oltukai Lodge, Amboseli Serena Lodge, Kimana Lodge, Amboseli Sopa Lodge and Tortilis Camp. Some of these are luxury accommodation while others are simpler. Go with whatever fits your tastes and your budget. Should you want to camp, remember to carry all your camping gear. The camping sites are Olgululu Public Campsite, Tortillis Tented Camp, Cottar’s Tented Camp, Chyulu Tented Camp, Abercrombie and Kent Tented Camp, Nairushari Special, Ker and Downy Tented Camp, Kimbla Tented Camp, and others. Amboseli Self drive safaris are an option, though to enjoy full access to the most remote (and tourist free!) areas you’ll need a 4WD car or jeep. For those in search of ultimate convenience flying safaris to Amboseli will transport you directly from a country’s international airport into the heart of the wilderness.

     

    Amboseli Tented Camps Information

     

    As the Kenya safari industry has developed, so have the number of options relating to bush accommodation type. At these lavish safari camps in Amboseli, guests get up close and personal with the world’s most elusive wildlife—without sacrificing comfort. These days, going on a safari to Amboseli doesn’t mean having to rough it and five-star safari camps in Amboseli Kenya are plentiful. Think thatched suites with wooden terraces, in-room plunge pools and even private helipads. Believe it or not, these safari camp amenities aren’t uncommon. The real reason to go on a safari in Amboseli National Park though is not for the accommodations—it’s for the wildlife-spotting. But as safari travel has become more abundant, so has access to game, and many trackers find themselves in line with a mob of other ranger trucks filled with visitors all after the same experience: an intimate view of the world’s most illusory animals. This can be avoided, however, if you stay at the right tented camp. That’s why Book & Travel chooses exceptional safari camps based on their fancy lodging, exclusivity of game drives (many of which last three to eight hours), and unique access in the bush. These safaris come with some strings attached, though—namely good behavior. Being so close to lions, rhinos and zebras (oh my!) might be exhilarating, but make sure that excitement doesn’t get the best of you. Observe the animals silently and with a minimum of disturbance to their natural activities. “Loud talking on game drives may frighten the animals away. Never attempt to approach a wild animal on foot, especially near your lodge or campsite where the animals have become accustomed to humans. Do not try to attract the animals’ attention by imitating their sounds, clapping, throwing objects or making any other disruptive noises. Whatever you do, protect the habitat. Off-road driving causes erosion and encourages the unwanted plant species and off-road driving is not allowed in any part of Amboseli National Reserve in Kenya and many other reserves around Kenya. Don’t smoke—the dry African bush ignites easily. Now back to Amboseli safari camps, Options vary greatly in this category, from basic three star accommodations to the most luxurious five star structures, Amboseli Safari lodges are fully permanent accommodation built out of stone, wood, thatch, bricks, mortar or a combination of all. Designs generally blend well into the African bush and contour the natural landscape, offering great views and similar amenities found in any hotel in the world. These are the most typical types of safari accommodation in Amboseli and in Kenya. You will most likely find air conditioning, a small library, a pool, a spa, laundry service, exquisite cuisine and excellent service, Safari lodges vary dramatically in size and style but are generally bigger than the mobile camps and permanent tented lodges. As these structures are permanent in location, be sure to check that your choice has good year-round game viewing. Below is an overview of the general accommodation options available, be sure to check the exact facilities of your ultimate accommodation choice (as these do vary from one to the other) or contact us for further information.

     

    Amboseli Permanent Tented Camps

     

    As the name suggests, these are non-movable permanent structures built on a concrete or wooden bases with canvas tent sides. Permanent tented camps combine the secluded, intimate atmosphere of tented lodging with the modern convenience of a safari lodge.

     

    Permanent tented Camps offer breathtaking vistas of the surroundings in a tranquil and serene environment – this is sensory overload! They generally offer private decks overlooking the bush, large sleeping areas, separate bathroom and showers with hot and cold running water and electricity. Public areas typically include a bar, lounge, dining areas, viewing decks, usually a pool, and a curio shop. Some will have Internet, a/c, and a private plunge pool. This luxurious and comfortable option is not roughing it in any way, and safari camps are generally more expensive than lodges. A safari camp is one where clients stay in permanent camps and travel from point to point by private road transfer or air charter. The lodge is the base for the day's activities, which may include game drives, walking safaris, boating, fishing, swimming. Clients are normally hosted during meals, service is personal, and professional guides and knowledgeable staff are on hand to supervise activities and answer questions. Tented camps tend to be small, luxurious and offer a more personal level of service.

     

    Mobile and Seasonal Tented Camps

     

    A 'mobile camping safari' involves the entire camp - tents, cooks, showers etc - move either with clients or goes ahead in separate vehicles. These safaris usually take 9-15 days with the camps being set up in 4 or 5 different locations. Usually the group travels by 4x4, although some safaris combine this with charter flights. Mobile safaris fall into three broad categories - non-participation Classic Camping and Authentic Camping Safaris, and limited-participation Adventure Safaris. For those that are a little more adventurous Amboseli National Park has a number of fantastic seasonal and mobile tented camps from which to choose. The non-permanent, luxury tents are reminiscent of Ernest Hemingway’s East Africa adventures and allow you to be fully immersed in nature. Mobile tented camps are often erected for three to six month periods following the wildlife movements, putting you in the best locations for game viewing. Generally campsites are small and sleeping tents are large, with very comfortable finishing, complete with flushing toilets and hot and cold running water. A separate dining tent and often a lounge/library will allow you to relax away from your tent, while camps are setup in remote game viewing areas away from tourist circuits.

     

    Classic Camping Safaris

     

    Classic Camping Safaris are "top of the range" and the level of service, bedding, cuisine and guiding is superb. These Amboseli safaris are well suited to clients who want to experience a traditional safari without sacrificing any creature comforts. 'Classic Camping' safaris tend to follow the theme of the old Hemingway-style camping safaris; accommodation is based on the walk-in 'Meru' style with ensuite bathrooms with short-drop loos. The camp staff move ahead of the clients and set up the camp and dining area. Cooks and room staff are on hand to ensure that clients are extremely well cared for. Travel is usually in Land Rovers or Land Cruisers and group sizes are limited to 10 guests. Private safaris can be arranged for family groups or for travel with friends. Flying Safaris are conducted when distances are great and the easiest way to get between camps is by charter plane. Many safaris use a combination of 4x4s and charter planes.

     

    Light Mobile Camping

     

    For the very adventurous, there are well-organised but simple ‘fly-camping’ options, usually associated with walking safaris. This option is the most versatile and most rugged option. It is also the most cost-effective lodging option as many of the ‘frills’ are omitted. If you are comfortable sleeping with out in the open wilderness with nothing but a thin walled tent/mosquito net with the sound of the nearby hippos and wildebeest, this option is for you! Immerse yourself fully in the wilderness in a location chosen by your accompanying guide. This option is basic, but is completely private with only yourself and your companion in the camp, unwinding around a campfire looking up at the stars.

     

    As tents are located near wildlife, the nights can be noisy; particularly when wildebeest and hippos are about you’ll want to consider this factor as well when deciding on which lodging options are best for you. Besides for the tented ‘fly camping’ option, certain luxury lodges have build ‘sleep out’ hides into trees and other landscapes (totally private and very romantic for the adventuring couple)
