Amboseli Rank Among Unique National Parks In The World …

Coastweek -- As mountains go, perhaps it is correct to say that more has been written about Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, than the higher and more difficult to ascend mountains in the Himalaya range.

Ernest Hemingway’s “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” won acclaim as a novella and the film which starred Gregory Peck likewise was a box office success.

The Amboseli side of the mountain in Kenya has a variety of wildlife, despite the fact that it is a dry area in the rain shadow of the mountain.

What stands out the most are the elephants in Amboseli.

Many of the big tuskers are gone, killed by poachers or hunters when these animals wondered out of the park.

Aggravated human pressure on the National Park and the ever-worsening environmental degradation due to climate change is yet another looming threat.

Today, Amboseli still ranks among the most unique national parks in the world.

How long this status will prevail considering the burgeoning human population, is anyone’s guess!
