A group of 8 of us stayed in this lodge for a night. Rooms are tastefully decorated, beds very comfortable, and the Wifi ( a surprise in a remote game park) is very good! It is situated inside the Amboseli Park with beautiful landscaping and facilities. The staff are friendly. It has a swim pool and open louge area with... More

Stayed here with with my wife from 6th to 8th Jul 2015. We were extremely happy that we chose this place. Everything about this place was a Class. On a comparative note we found it more elegant than Serena Mara. View of Mt. Kilimanjaro and the wild life from our Room was simply superb.

This is a welcoming and well run hotel. All staff are helpful and courteous. Rooms were clean and well furnished. Some of our party felt they were small for two people. Food in the restaurant was a little repetitive outside the nightly menu, where any meat was very tough. All in all a pleasant stay. Special mention to Michael on... More

Very hospitable, decor fitting to the setting, and right in the middle of the park. A place where Kenyan residents come to stay. Sitting on the veranda for cocktails we saw a jackal, mongoose, black faced monkies, and an adolescent elephant stroll by inside the lodge area. The monkies and the elephant are the only ones the staff discourage from... More

This was our first lodge and safari in Africa this visit and so was impressed. During the next 6 weeks we enjoyed a number of safari lodges and in retrospect this lodge should probably rate as a 4.5. A number of the other lodges we visited were also part of the Serena group and they vary quite a lot. This... More

Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge made going on safari an easy, almost civilized experience. The 3 meals a day and clean, comfortable rooms allowed us to not have to worry about any details other than enjoying the game drives. The price of the stay at the lodge was reasonable, but by the time you add $80 a day for park fees... More

We used to LOVE this lodge and had stayed here several times. Unfortunately, Serena lodges seem to be catering to families with very small children and no parenting skills. On my last stay here every time I went to the restaurant there were small children running about, throwing food from their table onto the floor and screaming at the top... More

Great experience, easy check in, well appointed rooms, the bed surrounded by mosquito nets Is very cozy, had running hot water 24x7 and wifi In the guest rooms - one of the few places that did. They can organise a night safari with a little notice which is a good experience even if the photos don't come out that well.... More

This was a nice hotel in the heart of the park. It will be a long bumpy ride to get there but you will rest comfortably with good food and a friendly bartender once you arrive. You are on a island of civilization in the wild; the hotel actual has monkey chasers on staff to keep the little guys from... More

I enjoyed my long weekend break at the Amboseli Serena in December 2014. Loved the warm welcome and friendly yet professional staff. The room and decor were superb a la Maasai style. Unfortunately, I had a terrible view from the room. The food was good and I particularly enjoyed the fresh bread served with the soup. I was expecting to... More
