The name Amboseli is derived from the Maasai word ’em-posel’ for the salty dust found on the seasonally flooded Amboseli “lake” when it rains. Amboseli’s swamps, plains, woodlands and bush country support a diversity of wildlife ranging from the minute and rare spectacled elephant shrew to the huge bulk of the African Elephant, the Geremuk and the Fringe-eared Oryx. The swamps and lakes are also home to over 400 bird species making the park a paradise for bird watchers. In addition to game drives, you can enjoy beautiful early morning or late afternoon bush walks with clear views of Kilimanjaro.
