We stayed here for two nights and had driven there from Nairobi. There were four of us, two couples in side by side rooms, and we used the jeep owned by the other couple to drive around the Park. This was great as we dictated when we would drive out, where we would go and when we could stop to...

As every travel guide will tell you, seeing the elephant families lumber over the road with the backdrop of the snowy top of Africas highest mountain is a great experience. To then spend the middle of the day in a place like this Serena lodge adds to the experience! The rooms are cute with views over either a swamp or...

We stayed at Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge in mid-February. We were two couples, with one small child, staying in two rooms, side-by-side. I found the staff, in particular, to be friendly and helpful, from housekeeping, to groundskeepers, to restaurant staff. In particular, I was very impressed by the quality of service and attention in the dining room. We found the...

Room was pleasant and clean. Food was not as good as served at several other Serena properties during my 5-week, 6-country trip in southern Africa. Enjoyed the safaris in Amboseli National Park and the views of Mt. Kilimangaro, even though the weather did not cooperate for good viewing. Staff for the most part was helpful. Negatives: 1) Was traveling solo...

Enjoyed one night at the lodge. The food was fresh and tasty though the staff were not very attentive. Excellent room and stayed in a family suite which was beautifully furnished. Clean lodge with wildlife close by.

In giving this hotel a four star rating, I've made some allowances for the fact that it is in the middle of nowhere, at the end of a long (2 hour) gravel road. Under the circumstances, it is a very nice oasis. Things aren't perfect, but you can't reasonably expect them to be. Having stayed at six different properties during...

I LOVE this place. Like all the top-end safari resorts, the staff is delightful and attentive. I felt completely safe and pampered. The food was very good, not superb, but fresh salad was welcome! I will be returning!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
