the lodge is located at the foot hills of Mt. Kilimanjaro. You can see the mountain in full view from almost every room. the rooms are updated, modern, and extremely clean. Overall the hotel pays attention to detail and the food/service were fantastic. I wish I couldn't stayed there one more night.

A nice place to spend time and watch wildlife. Right from when I contacted them to book, the customer service was excellent. We chose the lodge to celebrate our 10th anniversary and the staff went out of their way to make it memorable. Bernadette always kept in touch and ensured all we had our room prepared as to our specifications.... More

We stayed in the lodge for one night. Rooms as solid as opposed to the tented style you find in many national park lodges. The lodge faces a swamp/wetlands and there are lots of animals, including elephants, hippos, etc, which you can watch from your room window or verandah. However, overall the lodge lacks "Safari" character and is full of... More

A welcoming green haven awaits you on your arrival after a bumpy dusty road to get there. The soft green views over the swamps in front of the lodge allows for many wildlife to congregate. Watch the zebra, wildebeest, buffalo and elephant are seen daily, foraging at the foothills of Mt Kilimanjaro from your verandah. On offer is the option... More

Wonderful place to stay while on safari in Amboseli National Park. The staff is extraordinarily friendly and helpful, the rooms are great, and the restaurant serves delicious meals. The park is renowned for it's elephant herds, and you will not be disappointed.
