The lodge is set in the Ambroseli National Park amidst a small grove of trees. It was one of the few hotels that was fenced in order to protect the trees from elephants The fence was only partially effective as on the second day we were there a young elephant had made it inside the fence. The rooms are comfortable....

A lively place, beautiful, clean, a lot of cute monkeys tumbling among the people. It’s good to stay more than 1 night. The bar very generous and in evening enjoying a superb view! Wonderful atmosphere, you manage to recharge the batteries here!

A great place right inside the Amboseli National park. Very well managed with comfortable rooms, half of which face Mount Kilimanjaro and the other half, the watering hole that animals frequent. The food is excellent with loads of variety. In all, a very nice stay.

We planned this trip towards the end of our 5 year long stay in Kenya....we insisted on a family room with a view to Mt.Kili. Oh boy ...was that worth it...totally!!! Except for one day...we had a clear view from our room. Our family room was big with a separate space for our two boys,seperate beds,they had their own balcony....

This is a lovely hotel. Great pool area open to the game park so watch the cheeky monkeys. Nice cool bar. A spa and treatments. Great rooms by the park. Game come into the waterhole in front of the hotel at dusk. And in the middle of one of the best elephant reserves in Africa. The herds are spectacular. Plus...

Situated on the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest Mountain; beside a copse of giant Acacia trees and gently flowing natural spring. In the clean, crisp air of an Amboseli dawn, the snowcapped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro shimmering in the southern sky, you can sit atop a volcanic throne in the middle of the Masai plains and see the world. ... more   less
