Situated on the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest Mountain; beside a copse of giant Acacia trees and gently flowing natural spring. In the clean, crisp air of an Amboseli dawn, the snowcapped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro shimmering in the southern sky, you can sit atop a volcanic throne in the middle of the Masai plains and see the world.

We stayed here in March, the staff could no be any more helpful, they interacted with the guests, and were fabulous.. we could not have been made to feel more welcome, from the time we arrived to the time we left.. the room was clean, and every evening the mosquito nets were put over our beds.. Amboselli is as usual wonderful, and it was great staying here... already planning the next trip

Good food and good rooms. The property is a bit spread out but has location. Many elephants are seen from the lodge itself as are many other species. Service could use some improvement at the front desk. Restaurant staff were good as was the local guitar entertainer. He was fun and engaging.

We had the extreme pleasure of staying at Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge on our first trip to Africa and we could not have been more excited or pleased with our accommodations. Amboseli Serena was lovely with its clean adorable rooms painted with animals in the petroglyph style of painting. Those paintings extend through the lodge itself. There is a pool and spa and each days meals were taken in the restaurant that served buffet style international food, a mix of African, Indian, American, indonesian and more. It was all terrific and we enjoyed trying all the cuisine the innovative chef came up with. There is a wonderful gift shop with the prettiest of local craft and art with attentive staff. Every staff person is friendly and attentive. The Maasai who mingle with guests, give lectures and chase away any errant animals that get to close, were wonderful - say hi to Carey. Every evening there is a musician by the huge fire pit and porch. We met the talented Mario Wario who not only learned a new song for us and sang one of his originals, but entertained with great conversations. Our favorite part of the trip was sitting on the porch watching animals go by with a cocktail or coffee. The game watches from here are amazing and you get a beautiful view of Kibo and Kilimanjaro just outside the camp. We saw animals of every sort. Coming back to Serena at the end of the day to sip a specialty cocktail and watch more animals was superb serenity. I can't wait to go back again.

All in all a very good safari, although the lodge could do with a little updating. The staff were superb and couldn't do enough for you. Joseph, our guide was the same guide we had the previous year at Nanuki and he was just as good. A guide can make or break your holiday.
