10 Reasons why you should visit the Amboseli National Park

Part of the Visit Kenya & Kenya Safaris & African Safari Collection

Amboseli is a must-see destination for any traveler visiting Kenya — with the main attraction undoubtedly Mount Kilimanjaro — Africa’s highest peak.

Amboseli’s name derives from a Maasai place called ‘Empusel’, which means ‘open plain’. The national park is also well known for its massive herds of free-ranging African elephants, in fact, it’s estimated that there are over 900 African elephants in Amboseli.

If you’re planning on going on a Kenya safari in the near future, here are 10 Reasons why you should visit the Amboseli National Park.

 

“Because when it comes to her offspring, she will fight till death. And no one or nothing will stop her from protecting them.” This picture was taken at around 9:00 am in the morning at #amboseli #nationalpark in #kenya . Mum was protecting her baby from another hippo. What actually was happening is the male hippo wanted to kill the baby just so as to keep the competition for mating to the minimum level possible. This is very common in these species wherein the alpha male would kill the baby for the same. Absolutely no other reason than this. #hippo #mother saving its #kid from #alphamale | #natgeo #wildlifeplanet #animalplanet | #nature #photo #photography #wild #animal #wildlife #wildlifephotography #travel #africa #travelgram | #canon #canon_photos | #nofilter
