Today we visit the Amboseli National Park again, right on the border with Tanzania. I have visited several lodges in and around the Amboseli National Park, but I prefer to stay at Ol Tukai Lodge.
The charm of the lodge is unique. From the terrace, from the swimming pool or at breakfast, the Kilimanjaro is always within sight. The accommodations are spacious and beautifully decorated, the service is exceptionally friendly and the kitchen very good. The Ol Tukai Lodge makes you feel good.
The Amboseli National Park has largely been spared by poachers. Thus, a population of elephants was preserved, whose age structure and generation structure are still in order. About 800 elephants live here. Old elephant cows and bulls are present in large numbers, the complex social behavior can be observed easily.
The park is only 390 square kilometers in size. Gamekeepers and scientists from the Amboseli Elephant Research Project have been studying the social behavior, age structure and population dynamics of African elephants since 1972. If you want to support the project, you can addopt an elephant’s child for a small fee. The landscape of this national park is characterized by soda-colored gray dust. Acacia forests, swamps and open savannah alternate and provide a home to many big-game species. There are buffaloes, wildebeests, zebras, Grant and Thomson gazelles, impalas, giraffe gazelles, oryx antilopes and a few black rhinos. Predators include lions, cheetahs, hyenas, wild dogs, bat eared foxes and two species of jackals
