|Second in popularity after the legendary Masai Mara, Amboseli National Park not only offers great game viewing but it's also the place to go for the best views of iconic Mount Kilimanjaro. The world's tallest free-standing mountain actually stands just across the border in Tanzania, but Amboseli has a postcard-perfect view of its snow-capped peaks, rising almost six vertical kilometres above the savannah. The best time to view 'Kili' is at dawn and sunset when the clouds lift and the light is clear and soft.||
