We went to Amboseli Serena for our 23rd wedding anniversary to celebrate the honeymoon we never had. We were given the Ol Donyo Oibor Suite, Very cossy, clean, quite, and welcoming. The roof terrace accorded a wonderful morning view of Mt. Kilimanjaro; and relaxing on the private balcony with a hammock was heavenly. Staff were very friendly and out to... More

Was clean and staff very friendly. However, wasn't overly impressed with hotel. Got a great view of Kilimanjaro and fantastic views of the Elephants walking past!!! The "Bush" dinner was one of the highlights of the trip.

Medicine was provided, free of charge, and concern was expressed from every member of the staff!!! Besides this service in our time of need we found the... More

We recently returned from a 2 week safari in Kenya and Tanzania. The Serena Lodge at Amboseli was our first 2 night stay and we could not have asked for more. Beautiful lush gardens with open areas overlooking the wildlife park. Animals strolling by as you relax at the pool or bar sitting area. Rooms were large and beautifully decorated.... More

My family and I just returned from a wonderful 2-night stay at the Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge. We had an amazing time and I would recommend this hotel to anyone considering a safari in Amboseli. The grounds are immaculate, with a fabulous variety of lush vegetation. The "manyatta" feel is very tastefully rendered throughout, with earthy colours and beautiful art.... More

Stayed here last week - such a wonderful combination of relaxation and safari in that the lodge had a wonderful atmosphere as the rooms were clean, overlooked the park so one could see the elephants, zebras, monkeys at play. The common areas were spacious and open and the food was very good. The staff were very friendly and it was... More

I spent 2 nights here with my parents in February 2012, and it was amazing. I've spent a lot of time in Kenya and Tanzania, and this is one of the best places I've stayed. The rooms were nice, comfortable, and clean, the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, and the food was great. The best part, though, was the... More

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. ... more   less
