(Elephant country):

Crowned by Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, #AmboseliNationalPark is one of Kenya’s most popular tourist parks.

The name “Amboseli” comes from a Maasai word meaning “salty dust,” an apt description for the park’s parched conditions.

The reserve is one of the best places in Africa to view large herds of free-ranging elephants up close. Other wildlife commonly spotted in the park includes #bigcats, such as lion and cheetah, as well as giraffe, impala, eland, waterbuck, gazelle, and more than 600 species of birds.

Nature lovers can explore five different habitats here, ranging from the dried-up bed of Lake Amboseli, wetlands with sulfur springs, savannah, and woodlands. Look for the local Maasai people who live in the area around the park.
