Watch elephants bathe in a swamp from the summit of Observation Hill, a pyramid-shaped volcanic hill rising over the predominantly flat Amboseli National Park. Admire a view of the plains and swamps against the backdrop of Kilimanjaro. One of the best places to see elephants, the observation point draws lots of tourists, both local and international. In addition to large mammals gathering here to drink, you can also see flocks of pink flamingos. Bring binoculars and a powerful lens for good pictures. Observation Hill is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.
