This gave you a great opportunity to see Amboseli from high above the plains. You could see for miles and enjoy the animals as they interacted in their natural environment

Nice view point kept clean. Long way up in the heat though. Possibility to see birds up close. Sadly Kilimanjaro not always visible. Nice to take some pics.
