THE Amboseli ecosystem
The Amboseli ecosystem covers an area of approximately 5,700 Km² stretching between Kilimanjaro, Chyulu Hills, Tsavo West National Parks along the Kenya/Tanzania border.
The area is generally arid to semi-arid with a very small variation in its agro-ecological zones and is more suitable for pastoralism with a high potential for conservation of wildlife and tourism enterprises.
Administratively, the Amboseli ecosystem consists of Amboseli National Park and the surrounding group ranches. The group ranches are; Kimana/Tikondo (now subdivided), Olgulului/Ololarashi, Eselenkei, Mbirikani, Rombo, Kuku A and Kuku B cover an area of about 506,329 hectares in Loitokitok Sub-County.
It also includes the former individual ranches located on the foot slopes of Kilimanjaro that are now under crop production, mainly rain fed agriculture.
The area is a designated UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve since 1991.
