Amboseli Park

The Amboseli National Park in Kenya is widely known and visited because it is next to Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro.

The term “Amboseli” is derived from a Maasai term that signifies “dust with a salty taste,” and it is among the most ideal locations in Africa to observe immense gatherings of elephants from a close distance.

Those who appreciate nature can discover five diverse environments in this area, encompassing the desiccated basin of Lake Amboseli, marshes containing sulfur springs, grassy plains, and forests.

Visitors also have the opportunity to interact with the indigenous Maasai community residing near the park and immerse themselves in their traditional way of life.
