Amboseli National Reservation
Amboseli National Reservation
It is located in the Kajiado District, in the Rift Valley Province, in the South-Western region of Kenya, quite close to the Tanzanian border. Its area is only 392 square kilometres; nevertheless in spite of its small size and fragile ecosystem, it gives home to several aboriginal mammals. There are more than 50 large mammals and more than 400 birds in the area. The most interesting thing to see is the elephant population of more than 650 elephants, but there are also countless number of blue wildebeests, zebras and impalas, but there are also quite a few endangered black rhinos and cheetahs. The background of the park is provided by the snow-covered tips of the Kilimanjaro, which towers from just 40 kilometres from here. One-third of the Amboseli area is occupied by Lake Amboseli; nevertheless the lake forms a large unbroken surface of water only in the rainy season. In accordance with the regulation passed by the President, Mwai Kibaki, since September 2005 it has been supervised by Olkejuado County Council instead of the Kenya Wildlife Service. This change, which might be considered unimportant, comes with the result that the local Masai community can benefit from the revenues generated by the park. Amboseli is the third most popular national park in the country after the Masai Mara Reservation and the Nakuru National Park. In accordance with the 2006 estimates, almost 120,000 tourists visited the reservation. Another interesting thing about the park is that Ernest Hemingway and Robert Ruark visited the area and drew inspiration from this environment for their adventurous hunting stories.
