It means ‘salty dust" in Maa, the language of the Maasai, is a place of stark contrast. The park provides the classic Hollywood image of Africa. Set in rolling savannah scenery the park is dwarfed by the presence of the pink-tinged, snow-capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro.

At Kibo Safari Camp, the emphasis is placed on the experience of dining in the wild. Although meals are provided in a covered restaurant and drinks in a traditional bar, visitors are kept very close to the action by providing large, open areas with seats and tables on them. In this way, you are always right there in the wild.

Location

Tsavo West National Park

Tsavo West National Park is a 9,000-square kilometer game park in southern Kenya, located about 200 kilometers south-east of Nairobi. Separated only by the Mombasa / Nairobi road from Tsavo East, Tsavo West is part of the entire Tsavo eco-system. The game that you can see includes leopard, cheetah, buffalo, rhino, elephant, giraffe, zebra, lion, plains game, crocodile, and plenty of additional small mammals, birds and insects.

Tsavo West National Park topography features a wide range of habitats, wildlife, and a young mountain scenery unique in Kenya, spectacular showcase of recent geological activities. With Mount Kilimanjaro sitting on its flank, this recent volcanic area abounds in hills / mountains (like the Chyulu or Ngulia Hills and Chaimu Crater), in lake / rivers / springs (Jipe Lake, Tsavo River and Mzima Springs) and other geological particularities such as lava flows (Shetani Flow), caves (Shetani Caves) and outcrops rock and ridges (Roaring Rocks). All these landmarks and nature treasures erupted millions of years after the energic shake-up of the earth of Tsavo.

Tsavo West National Park's landscape is dominated, especially off the hills by the giant baobab, a tree that is reputed to live a thousand years. After the rains, Tsavo West National Park is showered with white and pink ipomea, the morning glory family, and the acacia trees are festooned with feathery masses of white and pink blossom. The desert rose, somewhat like a miniature baobab, produces fuschia-pink flowers of striking beauty at almost any time of the year.

Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park is located 240 kilometers south-east of Nairobi near the border with Tanzania on the northwestern foot of the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro. This park is best known for the excellent views of Mount Kilimanjaro. Amboseli National Park embodies five main wildlife habitats which are open plains, acacia woodland, rocky thorn bush country, swamps, and marshland.

Amboseli is a place of stark contrast. It means ‘salty dust’ in Maa, the language of the Maasai. Amboseli, despite its sometimes dry and dusty appearance, has an endless water supply filtered through thousands of feet of volcanic rock from Kilimanjaro's ice cap. Amboseli National Park covers 392 square kilometers and lies at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s’ highest mountain.

Amboseli National Park has over 50 species of large mammals including leopard, cheetah, wild dogs, buffalo, rhino, elephant, giraffe, zebra, lion, plains game, crocodile, mongoose, hyrax, dik-dik, lesser kudu, and nocturnal porcupine. Most of all, Amboseli National Park is famous for its huge herds of elephant which roam the park freely. With its awesome view of Mount Kilimanjaro (Africa's highest mountain at 5,895 meters), Amboseli National Park offers a unique and breathtaking backdrop for viewing Africa's animals.

One of the major attractions in Amboseli National Park is the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, then there is the Observation Hill which allows an overall view of the whole park especially the swamps and elephants. The swamp below observation hill hosts many elephants, buffaloes, hippos, and a variety of water fowls like pelican and Egyptian goose. Amboseli is home to the Maasai people so a village tour will open you up to the contemporary Maasai culture and indigenous lifestyle.
