Amboseli National Park lies southeast of Kenya, bordering Tanzania and offers picturesque views of Kilimanjaro Mountain.It was established as a national park in 1974, it was declared a UNESCO Man and the Biosphere reserve in 1991. The park is a 392km² with an ecosystem comprising mainly Savannah and grassland plains but also there are different habitat types like swamps, thick thorn bush, dry lake beds, marshland and some acacia forest.
Amboseli’s specialty is its great elephant presence coupled with the Kilimanjaro backdrop. Four of the Big Five can be spotted here. Only the rhino is not present in this park but the huge population of elephants roaming the plains morning and evening, surely does cover for this lack. Aside from elephants, there are other animal species to see; Grevy’s and Burchell's zebra, eland, waterbuck buffalo, hartebeest, hippo, giraffe, white-bearded wildebeest, wild dog, jackal, Thomson's and Grant's gazelle and impala.
Amboseli is kenyas second most popular park and considered the best place in the world to get up-close and personal with elephants in the wild. Did you know, beneath the park there is an infinite water supply continuously providing for the park through two natural springs? the spring waters attract a vast array of birds, such as hammerkop, kingfisher, pelican, crake, egret and 47 types of raptor.
