Swamp in between semi-arid land of Ambolesi National Park, Kenya
Amboseli National Park, is in Kajiado District, Rift Valley Province in Kenya. The park is 39,206 hectares (392 km2) in size at the core of an 8,000 square kilometres ecosystem that spreads across the Kenya-Tanzania border. The local people are mainly Maasai, but people from other parts of the country have settled there attracted by the successful tourist-driven economy and intensive agriculture along the system of swamps that makes this low-rainfall area one of the best wildlife-viewing experiences in the world.
The park protects two of the five main swamps, and includes a dried-up Pleistocene lake and semi-arid vegetation.
