AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK 

Amboseli National Park, although small, at approx 395 sq km, is one of Kenya's most popular parks. The views of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak, coupled with the variety of game to be found, draws the visitors in. The park which lies approximately 140kms south of Nairobi on the border with Tanzania, is most famed for its' large herds of elephants. A combination of drought, increased tourism, and over-grazing has had a hard-hitting effect on the western side of the park, the land has become dry, dusty and barren and the animals that were once there have moved into areas of shrub forest and marshland.
