The great Amboseli plain with its parched alkaline salt pans, strange mirages, and oasis marshes and lakes is dominated by the glistening majestic snow cap of Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,340 ft / 5,894 m). This is Masai country, a proud, nomadic people, who have lived in harmony with nature for centuries. Huge herds of elephants and buffalo are common, together with lion and a host of antelope species.
The Chyulu Hills are the natural border between the Masai and the Kamba people, perfect for walking and horse riding safaris.
