We walked up the observation hill and oh my..beautiful expansive views of the plains below. We could see directly below a pond full of hippos sunbathing and over the side elephants crossing the plain. We didn't get to see mt. Kilimanjaro due to cloud cover but views were amazing!

On a day trip from Porini Amboseli camp our driver/guides served us a picnic lunch atop the hill. It was magic.

A hill inside Amboseli National park with a good view over the park. We stopped here for lunch (piknik). There's a building on top of the hill with a roof and open walls, so we could get som shade. Just beware that if you are eating something you will have company by a lot of birds.

Great place to take a picnic breakfast and look out across the vastness of Amboseli National Park. Panoramic views in all directions.
