This is a short easy climb up constructed stone steps to reach the lookout with good views. It has information on the park and its history on signboards. Otherwise this is a quick stop.

I didn't really like to hill. We stopped there for lunch but there is not much to see. There is a washroom at the bottom. On the top is a viewing spot.

A good vantage point to see all before you, elephant, hippo, flamingos, over the swamp and the arid pastureland around. Observation building has many informative presentations laid out for you to read.

Observation hill is in Amboseli National Park. It is a bit of a walk up there and very windy at the top. You can see the entire park in all directions from there and there are some real good picture spots.

View point is strategic and offers one an opportunity to appreciate Amboseli National Park. There are plaques with useful information about Amboseli ecosystem. Plenty of fresh air and soothing breeze up there. A variety of birds fly and perch around shubs

Nice point to see the vast Amboseli plains. Plenty to learn from reading information boards located along the climb and at the top. Excellent location for taking memorable photos of the Amboseli plains.

We went up the hill to have our packed breakfast. It is a nice place to sit and observe wildlife from atop a hill.
