I just got back from an overnight trip to Amboseli - my second time staying at Ol Tukai Lodge. This time, I brought with me a group of 30 people looking for a relaxing get away amidst a 2 week conference in Nairobi. Everything was perfect!

Everything was wonderful. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. Food was great, and the staff very friendly. There was a soup that I especially enjoyed, and the hostess actually got me the recipe, typed it up,and gave it to me the next day- now that is going above and beyond! Great views as well!

This is a really nice lodge, good clean rooms and set out very nicely but it sort of reminds me of Kenya 20 or so years ago the problem is the staff, it's like you are in a 5 star Michelin restaurant and they have all been told not to smile or be happy like everywhere else I have stayed... More

The lodge is very fortunate to be the only one inside the national park and has wonderful views of Kilimanjaro. The rooms are clean and have all the facilities that you would need from a safari lodge however the overall feeling is that it is a bit bland and impersonal. The staff do what they have to be with zero... More

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.
