Days 3 & 4: Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park is most famous for being the best place in Africa to get close to free-ranging elephants among other wildlife species and also offers dramatic views of Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world, and the highest peak on the African continent. Kilimanjaro at 19,340ft or 5,894m rises dramatically out of the 4000ft (1,200m) Amboseli plains. An extinct volcano with two peaks, rocky Mwenzi and Kibo a crater rim. The glaciers on the mountain are slowly disappearing with global warming, but it remains snowcapped as any precipitation on the mountain settles as snow. Despite being in Tanzania, the best views of the mountain are from Amboseli, with Tortilis Camp on a south-west hillside facing the mountain, having the most dramatic views of all.   An added benefit of your camp of choice is that one is allowed to climb out of the game vehicle when in the concession when the guide deems it is safe to do so. This offers an advantage for photographers as one is not confined to a vehicle for creativity and angles.
