The best time to see Mount Kilimanjaro from Amboseli National Park would typically be during the dry season, which runs from late June to October. During this time, the skies are usually clear, offering excellent visibility of the mountain. Additionally, the dry season coincides with Kenya's winter months, when the air tends to be clearer and less hazy, further enhancing visibility.

However, it's essential to note that weather patterns can vary, and there's no guarantee of a clear view of Mount Kilimanjaro even during the dry season. Also, Amboseli National Park's location means that Mount Kilimanjaro is often shrouded in clouds, especially in the mornings. Therefore, it's advisable to plan for multiple days in the park to increase your chances of catching a clear view of the mountain.
