Everyone usually takes their guests to the Maasai Mara, which is kind of the holy grail for seeing all the best animals Africa has to offer. We do want to visit that place, but for this trip we decided to try Amboseli National Park. We’d heard great reviews from friends, so we headed to this game park that sits on the border of Tanzania and Kenya. The views of Mt. Kilimanjaro were worth the drive, but it was the elephants that really make this safari. Well, the elephants and getting to experience a first safari with my parents were really what made this trip so special. There truly is nothing that compares to being out and about with these animals in their own space.
