I really enjoyed the meals and the restaurant. The staff are really cool. And the swimming pool is so nice. The view of the kilimanjaro and the sunset. The game drive is so spectacular. I saw the big five and i ihave enjoyed the hotel.

Spent my Valentine's weekend in Amboseli and the Serena lodge was a great choice. It's located in the national park close to Mt. Kilimanjaro. You can enjoy a drink and watch the animals at the watering hole close by, or take a drive to Observation Hill for a spectacular view of the park, especially at sunset. The room was alright,...

We were family of 4. Two kids 6 abd 7 and two adults. We are happy with the rooms. Enough for a family. Kids have each separate bed. Food ok and service is good. Generally no big issue. One thing I don't like is when I ask to leave tip at the end of our stay, Someone takes me to... More

Went for a break just before my travels to Asia, more precisely the Philippines for four weeks. I am a Serena group fan as more or less I know what to expect. We returned to Amboseli Serena Lodge because the Serena Lodge in Lake Elementaita is full. Anyway, we have been there before and more or less we know what... More

We stayed two nights in Serena Amboseli. It is inthe middle of Amboseli park and has pool, nice rooms and open-air lounge area from where you can watch wild animals. There is no direct view to Kilimandjaro but you can see it often while driving around park. Meals are good, not high-end, but decent buffet stuff. Pool area is beautiful... More

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
