    Amboseli National Park

     

    Amboseli National Park, which occupies only 392Km square kilometers, one of Kenya's oldest park, is located near the Kenya and Tanzania border, "in the shadow" of Africa's highest mountain, the snow capped Kilimanjaro. The name Amboseli is derived from the Masai language, “Empuseli” meaning the “Place of Water”. The Amboseli National Park was gazette as a national park by President Jommo Kenyatta in 1974. Due to its unique ecosystem, it was declared a UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Reserve in 1991. Amboseli National Park has been famous for its elephants for decades. Designated a national park in 1974, it was then home to one of Africa's last populations of undisturbed elephants. While the new Amboseli National Park protected an area of only 150sq miles, the elephants were still able to migrate across a range of 1,200sq miles, a situation that had become unique because of the expansion of human populations throughout much of the continent. While elephants and farmers are not best bedfellows – crops are routinely destroyed, and reprisals result in the elephants being speared or even killed – the cattle-herding Maasai had lived side-by-side with Amboseli National Park elephants for generations. The Amboseli National Park had also escaped the ivory poaching that was endemic through the Seventies. Amboseli National Park is currently recovering from one of the worst droughts in living memory. Triggered by poor rains in 2008 and a total failure of the long rains in April and May the following year, the drought only finally broke at the end of 2009. By then around 300 of the park's 1200 elephants had died, and the wildebeest and zebra populations – upon which the park's lion population depends – had been so severely depleted that there were fears they would never recover. The result on the ground was an arid semi-desert littered with rotting carcases that some shocked visitors described as looking like an abattoir. But now, just one year later, Amboseli is, to the casual observer at least, in rude health. Scorched earth has been replaced by a carpet of green and the swamps are now watery givers-of-life rather than the treacly deathtraps they had become during the drought.

     

    Zebra and wildebeest populations have bounced back, and an elephant baby boom is expected in late 2010 when the 22-month gestation cycle has run its course. The world famous elephant research project set up by Cynthia Moss, which has been studying the Amboseli elephants since 1972 and is now the world's longest continuous study of elephants in the wild. As described in Moss's memoir, Elephant Memories, her team has made many discoveries about elephant behavior. These include their uncanny ability to communicate over many miles using ultrasound; the importance of family bonds; their complex emotional intelligence; and the fact that they clearly grieve for their dead, repeatedly returning to the carcasses of dead relatives and cradling their bones in their trunks. Recent studies have even shown that they can distinguish the language of Maasai herders from the English spoken by tourists. The researchers and the families of elephants they have lived with over decades have been the subject of some of the most moving wildlife documentaries ever made – including Echo: An Unforgettable Elephant, presented by Sir David Attenborough, which charted Moss's 40-year relationship with Echo until her death in May 2009. But in a wide-open landscape, with the backdrop of Kilimanjaro, it is a sight of epic proportions, nearby hippos wallow and bushbuck and oryx twitch nervously before bounding out of their path, while brightly- coloured crested cranes, the ballet dancers of the bush, strut their stuff. The ecosystem of Amboseli National Park is mainly savannah grassland and swamps and offers excellent opportunities to view Kenya's animals. This makes Amboseli National Park one of the most-visited safari parks in Kenya. The park has excellent road network, enabling visitors’ chances to do wonderful game drives. Two rainy seasons are well defined: one extends from March to April, the other occurs in November-December. The wettest month is November, 4-8 in. (10.2-20.3 cm.) of rain falling on the plains, and 8-12 in. (20.3-30.5 cm.) across the foothills of Kilimanjaro.

     

    The mean rainfall in April is 4-6 in. (10.2-15.2 cm.), and in March and May about half this amount. The driest months are June to October, falls seldom totaling more than 0.5 in. (1.3 cm.) in those months. Situated 260km (160 miles) from Nairobi, Amboseli National Park is one of the most popular safari destinations in Kenya. The Amboseli National is managed by Kenya Wildlife Service, on the border with the neighboring country of Tanzania The Amboseli territory belongs to the land of the Maasai, the legendary “Proud tribe of nomad warriors and shepherds” that feed on a mixture of blood and milk. The Maasai keep living today in the reserve surrounding the park the way they always did, grazing their herds around the plains and moving their household searching for the best pastures. Along their migrations, restricted today by encroachment of their territories, the Maasai build their settlings, the enkang'or more popularly manyatta or emanyata, using wooden sticks and poles plastered with cow manure. With their long and slender bodies, their proud and hieratic faces, their colored clothes and their plated and red-stained hair, the Maasai are a visually pleasant motif for the photographer, but for your own safety never take pictures of them without their consent. Amboseli is a very fragile ecosystem, submitted to great seasonal variations. The overall sensation is of a dry land; in fact annual rainfalls are scarce, in the range of 350-400 mm. The northwestern area is occupied by the dry bed of the Amboseli Lake, which for a large part of the year is nothing but a huge frying pan covered with shattered saline earth populated with dusty whirlwinds. The mirages blend with the herds of zebra and wildebeest that traverse the scalding plain one after one, crestfallen and with a weary and lost look. Amboseli National Park boasts several wildlife Amboseli resorts and Amboseli safari camps nearby, to suit all travel safari budgets, tastes and interests.

    Amboseli National Park Safari Information

     

    Amboseli safaris recapture the romantic mystique of authentic safari of centuries past,The incomparable thrill of quietly observing a passing herd of elephant while being served a beer on the veranda of an Amboseli tented camp is an everyday event, Imagine endless savannas teeming with millions of wildlife, towering boulders sprawling with tawny lions, and collapsed volcanoes brimming in mist. Imagine a place completely unaware of civilization where wildlife still reigns supreme. It is hard to believe a place like this still exists, but it does. It is called Amboseli National Park. The first time you experience this African wilderness, it will capture your soul. As other travel companies offer safaris to Kenya organized bustling caravans of minivans, packed with tourists, we saw them missing out on the true wilderness experience. An alternative became apparent to us: the Private Safari. Traditional Kenya safari packages meant unpleasant congestion, generic itineraries, and bickering clients with competing agendas. The value of private safaris became as obvious to us as a million thundering wildebeest with wildlife-focused itineraries. If you’ve ever dreamt of seeing wildlife on a safari to Africa, and have the money to spend on that once in a lifetime trip, there’s probably one reason why you haven’t done it yet – you don’t want to ‘rough it’ in a tent. Thankfully, safaris have come a long way since the days of basic tents and ropey hotels, and now more safari destinations than ever are catering to luxury travelers looking for five star experience, decent food and breath-taking sights of wildlife in their natural habitat. The rise of honeymooners choosing luxury safaris over a traditional relaxing beach breaks have also forced standards of safari destinations up a grade, There are several ways to do a luxury safari, Firstly, there are luxury safari lodges, These normally boast the best location within the game reserve – meaning you get the best views of wildlife, and you still feel like you’re staying in the wild, even with top class accommodation like en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, stylish décor, and often luxurious extras like plunge pools and private decks to watch the sunset. Amboseli Luxury tented camps offer a similar experience, but they are obviously less permanent structures, offering a more authentic experience of ‘camping safari under the stars’ beneath canvas, For a more exclusive luxury safari experience, try a private safari camp, set on a private or leased land, these small, intimate tented lodges can offer more extensive game drives, as they aren’t limited to driving within the roads of Amboseli national park. You can often go on walking safaris with private guides, and get up close with the animals, Private safari camps offer a superior level of services for guests, such as a laundry service, all-inclusive drinks and exclusive access to wildlife that other tourists don’t have.

     

    What to Expect On a Luxury Safari to Amboseli National Park

     

    The facilities vary across different types of luxury safari property, but you can expect an exceptional standard throughout. Private campsites are slightly ‘rougher’ – although the tents are large and the camp beds comfy, you’ll still have to use a bucket shower and a bush toilet. Whilst in the lodges houses and hotels, you’ll have ensuite bathrooms, flushing toilets and hot running water. What really makes luxury safari accommodation stand out, however, are the facilities. These can range from a swimming pool and sun deck, private veranda overlooking a watering hole, to hot tub, gym, private dining rooms or chefs, laundry service, a well-stocked bar and restaurant, serving fresh, local produce and picnics to take on game drives. Many of the luxury camps will offer a range of activities, from nature walks with a local guide or wildlife expert, to bush dinners, night-time game drives, birding, interpretive bush walks, walking safaris, Less popular, but still excellent safari destinations such as Tsavo National Park and Lake Nakuru are also worth a look for their vast, untouched wilderness and lack of crowds. Both have a wide range of safari lodges and a tented camp, Masai Mara National Park is also popular national Park.
