This park gets its name from the Maasai word “empusel” which loosely translates into the place of salty white dust. The park itself is a dry and dusty scrape of land but it gets a great relief from the swamps and ponds in the middle section of the park.
The swamps are fed with millions of gallons of water from underground rivers emanating from the melted ice caps of Kilimanjaro filtered through millions of lava tubes. This all year supply of water creates evergreen and lush vegetation which feeds the grazers in the park.
