I stayed at the Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge January 4-6, 2015. The location is spectacular, at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The 50 minute flight from Wilson Airport via Safari Link was highlighted by a gorgeous view of the mountain peak as we came in to land. The lodge was a quick 20 minute ride from the landing strip and... More

After staying in 2 lodges with great views this lodge was a little disappointing in respect to its outlook but then I guess that's Amboseli National Park. The rooms however were nice and big with an extra bedroom for the kids. The monkeys and baboons kept the kids amused. Food was really good and excellent service. The park itself is... More

...and this a good lodge. Staying at any Serena lodge gives you some basic certainty. They're all very clean, the overall service is good, the decoration is nice, the food is overall good and they take good care of the gardens and outside areas. What they REALLY should change is the swimming pool schedule. Everybody come back to the lodge... More

Amboseli National Park is renowned for its large herds of elephants, as well as lions, cheetahs, and other wild animals and the Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge is the ideal base for seeing them. It is also close to Mount Kilimanjaro and stunning views of the mountain are to be had on a clear day. The hotel itself is simple in... More

I spent time with my family at Amboseli and we didn't have a problem settling on the place because it's a Serena. The outdoors look dull and might give the impression that the place is lack luster. It however turned out to be quite good; welcoming rooms, good variety of good food. We went on two game drives and the... More

Absolutely loved it. Would go again if I could. We saw so much wildlife. The elephants were incredible. Our guide, James, was just awesome. He knew so much and really went out of his way to give us the time of our lives. He even spent time with us after our game drives to teach us more about the wildlife.... More

I enjoyed my two nights at the Amboseli Serna Lodge. The food was really good, staff very friendly and helpful. I had my own private driver to take me around, but the hotel was in a very good location near a large water hole where all the animals would hang around. Pool was very nice to have to soak in...

Nestled within Amboseli N.P. this lodge meets every expectation of a perfect African safari. Comfortable rooms, friendly and knowledgeable staff, good food, easy access to all aspects of the park. Easily the best lodge, with Kilimanjaro backdrop to boot. Good drive from Nairobi, and self-guided safari is an excellent adventure with very good trail maps. Elephant population is large and...

This is a nice hotel but by Serena's fabulous standards it's fairly average. Amazing location, food was nice, pool was good (especially for kids), rooms were fine. You must ask for a room with a view otherwise you are looking out into a small walled garden. However, this hotel lacks the intimacy and service of other Serena Hotels in Kenya.... More
