Stayed at the Safari Lodge for a few days in February and thoroughly enjoyed the location, food, service and accommodation.
Very well thought out decor and facilities, but the best aspect was the helpful staff. nothing was too much trouble and a constant smile was almost part of the uniform. The layout and gardens created exactly the right ambiance, and the resident monkeys provided daily entertainment. One of our party had a sore throat, and I gave him a packet of "Lockets" throat sweets. One of the resident monkeys must have been suffering from the same ailment, as he swooped down from his tree and "borrowed" them from the table by the pool where they had been placed. He probably enjoyed the honey, but I am not sure about the menthol!
Must mention the stir fry available at lunch and dinner. Just select a plate of finely sliced ingredients, hand them to the chef who cooks it while you wait, with chicken, beef or other meat, together with a sauce of your choice. Delicious.
Slightly surprised to be offered a glass of champagne when entering the restaurant for breakfast! What a good idea, even if a bit decadent at 7.30 in the morning!
Pool and accommodation excellent and as already stated the service of drinks etc was first class. The lodge made our visit to Amboseli a great and memorable experience. First class.
