Ol Tukai Lodge stands in a prime position in Amboseli with a wonderful view of Kilimanjaro across the plains ( when the clouds lift!) the rooms in chalets spread through the well kept grounds are pleasant and well furnished. There is an electric fence around the grounds to keep the animals out but you can sit outside your room and... More

Since we weren't here for long, can't say much about it except the food left a lot to be desired. They did not have a lot of variety. For breakfast, the only hot thing they had were eggs. No veggies, nothing. I even saw a huge daddy longlegs spider walking on basket of jam on the counter....but I guess that... More

All "rooms" are actually separate bungalows overlooking grasslands and herds of elephants, cape buffaloes and monkeys and baboons on your doorstep. Massai staff keep the monkeys and baboons under control. Very nice second level bar area and adequate buffet for breakfast. Views of Kilimanjaro if you are lucky! Rooms are numbered to the left of the main lodge (elephant view)... More

The rooms were luxurious, views fantastic, staff very friendly, and great food! Will definitely return. Its a great place to stay in Amboseli because the location is very accessible and convenient to use as a base when doing game drives. If you want to see elephants up close, this is the place to come!

What a fantastic place in a fantastic setting. We will be going again. The only down side was that the electricity is switched off at certain times.... not good for charging phones etc. However they do supply a torch, umbrella, slippers, dresssing gowns and more.

Prepare to wake up to elephants grazing in the horizon. The magic of this lodge is palpable. The rooms are spacious and situated in a way that all rooms can view the park. Monkeys are everywhere but they do not bother anyone. The staff is friendly. The BBQ was good. But they could use a new chef or a new... More

I had been to Amboseli before but stayed at a different lodge (Serena). Seeking to try something different we ended up at Ol Tukai lodge through recommendations from friends and this was the best decision we made. The lodge is just lovely and the experience was fabulous.

I recently had the pleasure of discovering Ol Tukai, a hitherto unknown gem to me, in the heart of Amboseli. It's a three hour drive from Nairobi the Kenyan capital. It's a comfortable ride even with a saloon car, though a four by four car is better for game drives within the park. A low bridge walkway leads you to... More
