Great location of this Serena, as well as typical great food & staff make this place a super bargain in Amboseli. Really pleasant campfire in the evening. One of my guests went on a guided bird walk and really enjoyed it. Can't go wrong staying here. But - watch out for the vervet monkeys! There is usually a Maasai or... More

I have stayed at the Serena in Masai Mara, Nairobi, Samburu and now Amboseli and the standard is a high as ever. Accommodation was excellent and food even more so with plenty of choice, their take away packed lunch was superb. All the staff are very friendly and I would highly recommend this chain of hotels when travelling to Kenya.

We stayed at the Amboseli Serena Lodge nine years ago and selected our recent safari tour based in part because it included this property. We were not disappointed. From the very entrance into the lodge, there is no mistake about where you are...you could only be in Africa--the deep earthy reds of the walls, the hanging gourds, the rounded surfaces.... More

We stayed here during a 4day/3night safari to Tsavo East/West and Amboseli with JT Safaris (www.julius-safaris.com) whom I would highly recommend. We were greeted with hot towels and drink on arrival and the staff were friendly. There was plenty of choice at mealtimes and the lodge looked over the plains. The rooms were spacious and clean, even including insect repellant... More

To quote from Serena's own website "Secluded within a grove of acacia trees, the lodge looks out over the golden savannah plains, with uninterrupted views of the mountain itself". Wrong. Nowhere in the grounds of the hotel complex can you see Mount Kilimanjaro. Maybe only from the roof of one of the suites. You have to go outside of the... More
