Amboseli National Reserve (Formerly Amboseli National Park) is a place of
stark contrast. Meaning a "place of water" in Maasai,
Amboseli despite its sometimes dry and dusty appearance,
has an endless water supply filtered through thousands of
feet of volcanic rock from Kilimanjaro snow melt. These
underground streams converge into two clear water springs
in the heart of the park.
The endemic dust is volcanic ash which spewed from
Kilimanjaro a millennia ago. During the dry seasons, a
curious feature is the shimmering dry lake bed where false
mirages of populated horizons, punctuated by real herds of
zebras and wildebeests hover in front of visitors. The
principal attraction in Amboseli National Reserve is its
vast herds of elephants within the park. The bull
elephants here have some of the largest tusks in Kenya.
Plentiful game includes: zebra, wildebeest, giraffe,
impala and leopard. Caracal and African serval cat can be
seen. Birdwatchers can see pelicans, bee-eaters,
kingfishers, African fish eagles, martial eagles and pygmy
Amboseli National Reserve is an important rangeland in
Maasai culture. The ranch areas outside the park offer a
wealth of game viewing and walking safaris. The Kenya
Wildlife Community Service works closely with the local
elders to develop eco-tourism attractions which benefit
the indigenous communities and protect this fragile
