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

Wonderful hospitality, great food, amazing animals close to the lodge and when driving around plenty of elephants, hippos, zebra and many other animals. Free wifi, helpful attentive staff. Maasai dancers come into the restaurant and perform.

Traveling in a group of four, we arrived at the lodge towards sunset and were warmly received with a towel... 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.
