Amboseli National Park, formerly Maasai Amboseli Game Reserve is in Kajiado District, Rift Valley Province in Kenya. The park is 390 kmö (150 mi2) in size at the core of an 8,000 kmö (3,000 mi2) ecosystem that spreads across the Kenya-Tanzania border.

The park is famous for being the best place in Africa to get close to free-ranging elephants, and they have been the object for research since 40 years, supervised by Cynthia Moss.
