Amboseli National Park

Amboseli lies immediately northwest of Mount Kilimanjaro, on the border with Tanzania. This park covers 392 square km and forms part of the much larger 3,000 square km Amboseli ecosystem.

Famous for its big game and its great scenic beauty the landscape is dominated by the towering Mount Kilimanjaro.

The National Park embodies five principal wildlife habitats-open plains, acacia woodland, rocky thorn bush country, swamps and marshland and covers part of a Pleistocene lake basin, now dry. Within this basin is a temporary lake, Lake Amboseli, that floods during years of heavy rainfall.

There are large concentrations of wildlife here in the dry season, making Amboseli a popular tourist destination, and is surrounded by six communally owned group ranches.
