Our first safara stop has been Ol Tukai in Amboseli National Park - really liked the lodge: accommodation, food, hospitality, beautiful views on the elephants walking in front of our little bungalow... If you like the elephant view, choose an elephant view room - if you prefer the view on the mountain, choose one of the mountain view rooms -... More

This is a really nice lodge, good clean rooms and set out very nicely but it sort of reminds me of Kenya 20 or so years ago the problem is the staff, it's like you are in a 5 star Michelin restaurant and they have all been told not to smile or be happy like everywhere else I have stayed... More

The lodge is very fortunate to be the only one inside the national park and has wonderful views of Kilimanjaro. The rooms are clean and have all the facilities that you would need from a safari lodge however the overall feeling is that it is a bit bland and impersonal. The staff do what they have to be with zero... More

We arrived first at Amboseli at Ol Tukai. This place has the best views of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The rooms are exceptional. The staff are great and personalised services. Best part is the food though fixed menu it very much fills you up with the right quality and quantity. The only complaint I have is the power timings. Not enough time... More

Ol Tukai is my favorite place to stay in Amboseli. While it is one of the larger lodges with many rooms, thus many guests, the grounds and setting are some of the finest in Kenya. The views of the savannah and Mt. Kilimanjaro are superb, and the bird watching is excellent. After hours of overseas travel and jet-lag, arriving at... More
