Amboseli the photographer’s paradise most enjoyed and sought after, the picturesque backdrop of a stand alone mountain with miles and mines of endless plain. The wildlife attraction against this backdrop cannot be found any where else on this planet. The Amboseli vast herds and herds of elephant and their extra extra large (XXL) tusks is a major attraction. The world’s oldest elephant research centre lives here in the midst of these big Jumbos. The melting snow from Africa’s highest peaks drains under lava flows and oozes in Amboseli, creating a green belt of swampland amidst dusty plains. Here, hippo, elephant and birdlife can be seen against the backdrop of this magnificent snow-capped mountain.

Amboseli which means meaning "Salty Dust" in the Maasai language is an important rangeland in the Maasai pastoralists’ culture. The 'salty dust' is formed by the volcanic ash from Mount Kilimanjaro eruptions which occurred about millennium ago. The arid plains are covered by this dust which forms heat wave mirages in the dry season. The endless herds of animals seem to waver in the distance, with only the interruption of herds of wildebeest and zebra hovering in front. Animal seen include elephant, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, impala and leopard. The birdlife seen here includes pelican, bee eater, kingfisher, African fish eagle and pygmy falcon.
