Amboseli National Park

One of the most popular Safari destinations in East Africa, Amboseli National Park is located in southern Kenya in Kajiado County, bordering Tanzania. 'Amboseli' is a Maasai word meaning 'salty dust', somewhat appropriate as the park is known for being dusty in the drier months. Officially gazetted as a National Park in Kenya early 1974 and subsequently declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1991, the national park measures 392 square kilometers, though it does form a part of a vast 8000 square kilometer wildlife conservation ecosystem that stretches across the border into Tanzania. Amboseli National Park is a leading wildlife conservation haven for a diverse species of wild animals but is especially known for its prolific African Elephant population. The park is also home to predators including the Big Cats such as Lion, Leopard and Cheetah as well as Wild dogs, Giraffe, Zebra, Buffalo, Wildebeest, Crocodile and Hippo, not to mention a rich and abundant collection of over 600 species of birds.

Amboseli benefits from having five different nature habitats ranging from grassy Savannah and woodlands to marshy wetlands with sulphur springs and the dry bed of Lake Amboseli. Amboseli National Park is considered among the best wildlife parks in Kenya and also in Africa and this website, amboselinationalpark.net, offers essential travel information to guide travelers in planning their trip or for booking a Safari to Amboseli.
