Parts of Amboseli National Park are a shallow lake bed where water pans and produces a riot of vegetation. With abundant food elephants are reliably seen at this Kenyan park - and will continue so long as poaching is controlled.

No safari is complete without at least a distant view of these grandest of living land animals.
