In July 2019 I visited Amboseli National Park in Kenya.
Amboseli National Park is located in Loitokok District, Rift Valley Province of Kenya.
The park is famous for being the best place in Africa to get close to free-ranging elephants among other wildlife species.
Other attraction of the park is the spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world.
Amboseli has an endless underground water supply filtered through thousands of feet of volcanic rock from Kilimanjaro’s ice cap, which funnel into two clear water springs in the heart of the park.
However, the climatic pendulum can swing from drought to flood, and in the early 1990’s ceaseless rain changed Amboseli into a swamp. A few years later the rains failed and the grass-covered plains turned to dust.
