Amboseli National Park, formerly Maasai Amboseli Game Reserve, is in Kajiado County, Kenya. The park is 392 km2 in size at the core of an 8,000 km2 ecosystem that spreads across the Kenya-Tanzania border. The local people are mainly Maasai, but people from other parts of the country have settled there. The park protects two of the five main swamps, and includes a dried-up Pleistocene lake and semi-arid vegetation. It lies 240 kilometers southeast from the capital city Nairobi and is the second most popular national park in Kenya after Maasai Mara National Reserve.
Amboseli offers some of the best opportunities to see African wildlife because the vegetation is sparse due to the long dry months. Amboseli National Park is home to many species, including African bush elephants, Cape buffaloes, impala, East African lions, cheetahs, spotted hyenas, Maasai giraffes, plains zebras and blue wildebeest among other African animals. It is famous for being the best place in the world to get close to free-ranging elephants. There is also a host of Kenyan birds, both large and small. Other attractions of the park include opportunities to meet Maasai and visit a Maasai village. The park also has views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world.
