We woke up on our final day of this amazing safari with a brilliant view of Mount Kilimanjaro. The lodge we were staying at is set perfectly on a small hill, to give you the best possible view of the famous mountain from the Kenyan side. The morning safari was filled with large herds of elephants, and several buffalo dotted here and there. Many general game species can also be found in Amboseli, and we had some wonderful photographic opportunities with a very obliging journey of giraffe. The afternoon safari had a little treat in store for us. We managed to find a pride of 8 lions, which is always nice, but these lions were milling around in front of Mount Kilimanjaro, giving us 2 of Africas icons together in one photograph! As if that wasn’t enough, several elephants left the swamp and also meandered in front of the mountain – photographic heaven! It was a great end to a great safari!
