Amboseli is set on the Kenyan plains with Mt Kilimanjaro as a backdrop in the distance; the park is world-famous for its substantial population of African Elephants which can be seen in herds of over 100 individuals. In particular, the large bull elephants have some of the largest tusks in the animal kingdom. Also to be spotted are ample herds of buffalo, wildebeest, zebra and impala, as well as giraffes and warthog. With all this variety you can be sure a healthy population of predators also call Amboseli home. Lions, leopards, caracals, cheetahs, jackals, hyenas and serval cats are all frequently seen in the park.

The following list is a general guideline of what to bring on the safari:
- Shorts and t-shirts or light trousers for the daytime.
- A wide-brimmed hat to shade you from the sun, this should have string/straps if standing in the van or jeep as it could be blown off.
- Plenty of sun protection, lotion or cream (High SPF).
- A good pair of binoculars (there’s usually just one pair in vehicles).
- Long trousers and long or short-sleeved shirts for the evening and protection from mosquitoes
- A fleece/jumper/sweater for the early morning (or a safari jacket) and evening game drives, as it tends to get very chilly, especially in the highlands and in the Masai Mara.
- Plenty of film or flash card memory for your camera and a battery charger for all electronic devices.
- A small first aid kit.
- Swimming costumes/bathing suits as most of the lodges and camps have swimming pools.
- A good pair of sunglasses as you are on the equator where the sun is very powerful. Prescription sun spectacles are not recommended as may scratch or fall off the vehicles.
- A pair of safari shoes or trekking boots.
- A pack of wet wipes.
- Mosquito repellent.
- Bottle’s or jugs of water to keep you hydrated. Spending a lot of time in the sun, even when wearing hats and sunglasses will dehydrate you in most cases.
- On a safari, be prepared for bumpy and dusty roads. These can be irritating to the contact lens wearers. Eye drops and an extra pair of glasses are sensible protection.
- Pack light. Laundry facilities are available throughout your safari at extra cost. Remember your weight limit on your return from East Africa.
- Our equatorial sun is strong. Too much can cause dehydration, nausea, dizziness and headaches. We recommend that you wear sunscreens and a hat, as well as a strong pair of dark glasses.
- DO NOT take photographs of the locals without permission. Never take photographs of the military, policemen in uniform, and the President or Government officials.
- Always keep your camera loaded and ready for action. You never know when it is going to start
