This lodge is situated right up against Amboseli. You'll watch elephants as you eat lunch - so cool! It's great to see the sunrise and set with Mt Kilamanjaro in the background. We spend 2 days there while on safari and loved it. Food is basically good - wasn't amazing, but can't complain either. Def recommend.

We stayed at Ol Tukai lodge for 2 nights while visiting Amboseli park. The lodge has beautiful views of both the elephants and Mount Kilimanjaro. Staff is great, rooms and food are okay. We were there over New Years and the lodge had some performers and a cocktail party. Nice place to stay while visiting the park.

Lovely lodge with an amazing and wonderful views. From the bedroom you can see elephants, zebras, etc. Rooms are full equipped. Beds are fantastic and very comfortable. It has a nice swimming pool where you can relax after the safaris. Moreover the lodge is inside the National Park so you don't waist time when you go to the safari.

Definitely a marvelous location. Wake up early to see Mount Kilimanjaro rise. Watch families of elephants go by while you enjoy a delicious breakfast or lunch. Feel the warm and friendly service of the hotel staff. Plunge into a beautiful kept pool while you gaze at the wild animals passing by after an exciting game drive. Rest and be amazed....

Great separate individual rooms with free wifi, large bathrooms, and views of passing herds of elephants, deer, water buffalo, and the view of Mount Kilimanjaro. The restaurant was good though everything but but only tea and coffee was free.
