Amboseli National Park
Amboseli means 'salty dust' in Maasai, the dust being
volcanic ash from eruptions of nearby Mount Kilimanjaro.
Amboseli National Park is the perfect location to capture those
quintessential images and memories of Africa – elephants and
lions crossing the plains, cheetah sprinting across great
expanses of sparse wilderness, vibrant birdsong in lush acacia
forests, and the ever-changing natural light playing on the
snow-capped peak. It's a fine park to observe elephants closely
as they are very relaxed and well used to people.
Most of the Amboseli National Park consists of a dry, ancient
lakebed and fragile grasslands with patches of acacia woodland,
while in the southern area there are a number of small volcanic
hills. Around the swamps the vegetation is lush with
yellow-barked acacias and phoenix palms.
