Amboseli is the best place on earth to see elephants with big tusks and Ol Tukai lodge is in the middle of the park. As the Amboseli is a small park, you can reach every corner of the park in a short time. The rooms are spacious, clean and looking to a swamp and Kilimanjaro, which means you can watch... More

We arrived quite late to our lodge because of heavy traffic on the road from Nairobi. The sun was going down and our drive from the park gates to the lodge involved only a few short stops for giraffe and for a huge herd of elephants - a memorable start to our stay in Amboseli though! The lodge was a... More

Very nice looking resort & was lovely to watch elephants amble by whilst you have breakfast. The rooms were quickly swept over every day but not cleaned which was disappointing. Food & choice was very good.

Amboselli gave us our first introduction to African wildlife during our 5 week holiday. From the airstrip to the lodge - about 20min drive - we were treated to sightings of elephants, hippos, ostriches, gazelles, impalas.....it was amazing. Our chalet had a view of Kilimanjaro which we were fortunate enough to get a glimpse of during our two night stay... More

Magnificent view and beautifully situated. Enjoyed every minute of my stay. Friendly staff and very clean rooms. Food was fine as well. Loved seeing elephants roaming around with babies, zebras and monkeys. It was awesome experience.

The lodge is fantastically located - about 4 hour drive from Nairobi with most of the rooms offering a terrific view of the Kiliminjaro. Amboseli is a very unique park given it's large population of elephants and the sight of majestic elephants moving gracefully against the backdrop of the Kilimanjaro is just breathtaking! The rooms are very comfortable and tastefully... More

Met all the standards in terms of location, amenities, food, etc., etc. but the human dimension seemed to be wanting here - staff seemed adequately task-focused but didn't exhibit any of the warm, welcoming hospitality and generosity of spirit we encountered everywhere else. That's an important dimension on this kind of journey, making it hard to award this lodge an... More

The location of this hotel is great and it is beautiful - the rooms are not too bad (though ours had a terrible stench). The staff is homophobic and quite unkind. During our trip to Kenya, my partner and I fully respected Kenyan culture and social norms regarding homosexuality, avoiding public displays of affection, etc. When we arrived at this... More

we enter the hotel at lunch and it was pretty good. There's monkeys all over the hotel and they could just be outside of your room. The rooms were clean. The staff were really nice. And the views were amazing.
