- Amboseli National ParkFirst to ReviewSep 20, 2012
Altitude – 3,900 – 4,500ft. Area – 392 sq. kms. Distance from Nairobi 265 kms. Opened April 1948 Amboseli is a place of stark contrast. Meaning “Salty Dust” in Maasai. Amboseli, despite its sometimes fry and dusty appearance, has an endless water supply filtered through thousands of feet of volcanic rock from Kilimanjaro’s ice cap. These underground streams converge into two clear water springs in the heart of the park. The endemic dust is bolcanic ash which spewed from kilimanajaro a millennium ago. The principal attraction of Amboseli is its vast herds of elephant within the park.

Amboseli National Park is also a world famous as the best park for one to get up close with the free ranging African Elephants. Visitors to this park have a rare chance to take spectacular photos of wildlife against Mt. Kilimanjaro.
