We spent 2 nights last year. Very clean rooms and friendly staff. The lodge is outside the park but its a ten minute drive so we didn't mind it. Great food & gardens availing perfect getaway ! Loved the place and would love to visit it again.

The most amazing spot in the forest right across Mt Kilimanjaro. Rooms need a bit updating but service and staff was amazingly good. It rained heavy that night and roads were impassable so no game drives but lots of board games were arranged at the lodge so people enjoyed. Had an adventurous trip back home as buses got stuck in...

We stayed here for 2 nights on our 5 week trip through Africa. The Sentrim has tents with an attached washroom. We had tent number 4, which had no view of the mountain but close to the restaurant and bar. There is a nice walk to the viewing platform, where you can see Kilamanjaro if it cloud free. The food...

We had a very great stay at the Sentrim Camp in Amboseli - the tents were of top quality with a direct view of Kilimanjaro. A great place to relax after a day of Safari with a swimming pool etc. The meals were great and the service even better :-) A great thanks to KM Safaris Kenya Ltd, who arranged... More

We stayed here 2 nights in tent number 15 and it was amazing. The tent has all comfort you need and a perfect view to the Kilimanjaro. Food was really good. Because it was notbusy, dinner was served. Breakfast was in buffet style. Everybody was so friendly!! We definitly will return

Spent about couple of nights during Late August 2015. website advised not to miss Mount Kilimanjaro viewing rooms. We took one to our utter disappointment there is hardly any nice view other than few tall trees in front or the tent in front. Instead walk around anywhere in amboseli, a good view will be ensured. Rooms are Primarily tents, which... More

I last wrote a review 2 years ago and I am happy to review Sentrim again. I spent 2 nights here in Aug and was once again impressed by the level of hospitality this establishment shows its guests. As a solo traveler on this occasion, the lodge was full. Despite this every member of staff at some point checked I... More

Perhaps this is the only resort I have come across which looks better in real than in the photos. Stayed here for 2 nights and had a great time. The camp is situated close to the actual jungle and gives a good feel of the same. It is a Tented Accommodation, but once you are in your tent, you will... More

Not the poshes of places -- it is a "tented camp" after all, but it is clean, well kept, with a well trained staff who is helpful and polite and who sincerely care about the comfort and enjoyment of their guest.

The pictures that you see are accurate. You would never think that tents were this nice. The view was great!, The staff was nice. The food was terrible. It was not so much the performance of the cooks and cook staff but the product (meat, etc. Was terrible. The meat was so full of bone, fat and gristle, it was... More
