We had a buffet style lunch (LOTS of options to chose from on the buffet), dinner menu (3-4 different options to chose from), and a buffet style... More

The Ol Tukai Lodge in our opinion after staying in various safari camp and lodge around the world can be considered average to good. Within the range mentioned, our stay in the lodge started with a standard welcome of cold towel, and welcome drink at our check in. We also received our hotel information on the meal time, on-off on... More

We loved the décor of the main lodge and bar area. Wifi was available in the lobby and it was reasonably fast. Our room was all the way at the far end of the property which was a 5-10 minute walk. There were 4 rooms in each small building. Rooms had a vaulted ceiling with a fan. End units had... More

A stunning lodge within Amboseli National park with views over Mount Kilimanjaro. Well equipped rooms decorated superbly to give the feel of 5 star luxury. Food of a very high standard with varied choice, buffet breakfast and lunch but waiter service for dinner.
