Get to Know West Kilimanjaro

Set at the foot of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, this remote community-owned Wildlife Management Area offers access to a wild and madly scenic corner of Maasailand.

West Kilimanjaro, often also referred to as South Amboseli, comprises a 1,800-square-kilometre wedge of semi-arid acacia savanna running northwest from the base of Kilimanjaro to the border with Kenya’s legendary Amboseli National Park. Though not formally protected, the area consists of several sections of Maasai community land amalgamated under the banner of the Enduimet Wildlife Management Area.

Here, Maasai herdsmen co-exist with a remarkable variety of wildlife, including lion, cheetah, wildebeest, zebra, eland, impala, Grant’s gazelle, hartebeest and yellow baboon. The area is perhaps the best place in Tanzania to see the remarkable stretch-necked gerenuk antelope.
