African Sunset, Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park, formerly Maasai Amboseli Game Reserve, is in Kajiado County, Kenya. The park is 39,206 hectares (392 km2; 151 sq mi) in size at the core of an 8,000 km2 (3,100 sq mi) 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 (average 350 mm (14 in)) one of the best wildlife-viewing experiences in the world with 400 species of birds including water birds like pelicans, kingfishers, crakes, hamerkop and 47 raptor species.

The park protects two of the five main swamps, and includes a dried-up Pleistocene lake and semiarid vegetation.
About 240 km (150 mi) southeast from the capital city Nairobi, Amboseli National Park is the second-most popular national park in Kenya after Maasai Mara National Reserve.

The park is famous for being the best place in the world to get close to free-ranging elephants. Other attractions of the park include opportunities to meet Maasai and visit a Maasai village. The park also has views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Amboseli was home to Echo, perhaps the most researched elephant in the world, and the subject of many books and documentaries, followed for almost four decades by American conservationist Dr Cynthia Moss. Echo died in 2009 when she was about 60 years old.

Amboseli National Park offers some of the best opportunities to see African wildlife because the vegetation is sparse due to the long, dry months. The protected area is home to African bush elephant, Cape buffalo, impala, lion, cheetah, spotted hyena, Masai giraffe, Grant's zebra, and blue wildebeest. A host of large and small birds occur too.

The park has several rules to protect the wildlife: Never leave the vehicle, except at designated spots; do not harass the animals in any way; always keep to the tracks; no off-road driving; and always give the animals the right of way. The roads in Amboseli have a loose surface of volcanic soil that is dusty in the dry season and impassable in the wet season.

Digging for drinking water in a dry riverbed

A woman scoops water in a dry riverbed near Kataboi village in remote Turkana in northern Kenya.

In 40 degree heat and with no access to clean water, she resorts to collecting unfiltered water for her family in containers.

The lack of rain this year across the Horn of Africa has resulted in failed crops, lack of water and death of livestock. The Government of Kenya declared the drought a national disaster as 3.5 million people in the country are in need of emergency assistance.

The bones of a camel in a dry river bed near Kalakol, Turkana, Kenya.

Camels are a valuable commodity which are used for producing milk. Camels can produce milk despite not having water for long periods of time. Due to their value, camels are often stolen from people from neighbouring territories as they fetch a good price at market.

However, even camels need water sometimes. The lack of rain this year across the Horn of Africa has resulted in failed crops, lack of water and death of livestock. The Government of Kenya declared the drought a national disaster as 3.5 million people in the country are in need of emergency assistance.

Season of Feasting!

During the annual wildebeest migration, close to a million wildebeests and zebras move along their pre-determined route which they have been following for centuries. They have been making this 1800 km trek in search of greener pastures following the rain across the Maasai Mara and Serengeti savannah plains.
They normally come to Kenya from July to October with their young calves who were born in February-March and are still very vulnerable. They fatten themselves to make the long trek back before the next breeding season.
Whilst they are in Kenya the predators have a field day with plenty of prey all around and are lucky enough to have a meal every day.

Malaika and her sons were lucky to catch a young wildebeest calf and were busy feeding. Photographed on a game drive in the Maasai Mara Game. Reserve, Kenya.
