Amboseli National Park
Amboseli National Park's stunning scenery is its blessing. The same is also its curse; this is Kenya's second most-visited reserve after the Masai Mara.
You'll see plenty of other vehicles on game drives here especially crowded around predators. But if you can look past the crowds the landscape will be your reward.
There are approximately 1,000 elephants in Amboseli. Their relaxed nature around vehicles means close-up encounters are pretty much guaranteed.
Amboseli’s predators are somewhat thin on the ground. There are lions, leopards and cheetah. But due to extensive hunting by the Masai they are quite shy. Sightings are thus much less frequent than in the Masai Mara.
'Amboseli' derives from a Masai word meaning 'salty dust'. This name becomes a literal description towards the end of the dry season. This is when Amboseli can become extremely dry.
Herds desperately seek out what little water there is. This is not a pleasant time of year to visit. We still love this park and put Amboseli on many Kenya itineraries.
