The best spot to see untamed, majestic herds of elephants in Africa, if not the entire world, is in Amboseli National Park. Even better, the snow-capped Mt. Kilimanjaro serves as the backdrop for your safari excursion. Nevertheless, this park gives Africa’s greatest views of the continent’s tallest peak. With beautiful sunrises and sunsets, this is a photographer’s dream location. A quick 4-hour journey will take you from Nairobi’s bright city lights to Kenya’s expansive countryside, where you may see breathtaking elephant herds and the imposing Mt. Kilimanjaro. The largest free-standing mountain in the world and the tallest mountain in Africa both have a park at their base. Four of the “Big Five” are present here, and its famed form guards the park and all of its species.
