A huge swamp which covers a large part of Amboseli National Park is fed by underground rivers from Mt Kilimanjaro's melting snow. Even when there's a drought, the swamp is constantly wet which is why this area is always teeming with life. Elephants & hippopotamus enjoy soaking in the cool water and are never short of food. You can also find other animals wading through the swamp e.g buffaloes, zebras & wildebeest

A great place to view the swamp is from the top of Observation Hill.
