This hotel intrigued me right from the time of booking. At the Amboseli one is spoilt for choice when it comes to top class lodges. I asked Shebby, the lady in the reservations office, to give me her top reasons why I should stay here and not in any other lodge. Once she was done with her pitch, I knew I was sold.
The location of the lodge is breathtaking. Each room has a clear view of the park with animals in the foreground and Mt Kilimanjaro in the background. Absolutely stunning. The staff were all very friendly and courteous. The food was great with outdoor barbeques every night and entertainment from Maasai dancers, traditional dancers, acrobats and one man guitar.
The kids had lots to do starting with swimming in the infinity pool which has great views of Mt Kilimanjaro and can be a very relaxing spot. There were a variety of board games available and the kids learnt how to play chess. There was table tennis which the kids loved. The game drives were the absolute highlight of the trip. All animals were right next to the hotel. We didn't have to venture too far in search of them. To top it all there were many other families staying here and the kids made some good friends.
The hotel has a spa but I didn't get time to use it.
I highly recommend this hotel to families. It is indeed an awesome place.
