About Amboseli: Amboseli National Park was Kenya's first established wildlife park. Since 1948, millions of international guests have been drawn to the park by snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, with wildlife grazing under flat-topped thorn trees below. Much of Amboseli is dry and desert like. About a third of the park consists of Lake Amboseli, a seasonal soda lake that, at certain times, appears to be a dead, flat wasteland. Indeed, amboseli is Maa (the language of the Masai) for "salt dust." In dramatic contrast to these dry desert areas of Amboseli are river forests and swampy areas bright green with clumps of vegetation. In Amboseli more than in any other park of Kenya, you are certain to see elephants. Elephant herds are clearly visible across rolling grassy savannas, usually grazing their way to and from major feeding grounds or water holes.
