|What this game drive lacks in animal variety it makes up for with its density of elephants. There are very few things in this world that are as wonderfully moving as witnessing the herds of elephants that inhabit Amboseli. Sat in the safari vehicle one feels small and unimportant yet overwhelmingly honoured. – Sarah|

|Expect to encounter large herds of elephant at Amboseli National Park. These animals can often be found bathing in the swamps around Lake Amboseli, but your best bet at photographing them with Kilimanjaro as a backdrop is much closer to Kimana Gate.|
|The hyena seem to like the drainage tunnels beneath the trails, so do keep an eye out for them there.|
|Consider stopping at the Noomotio Observation Hill along your route, especially for a picnic lunch.|
