We stayed at Amboseli Lodge for two nights after been driven down from Nairobi in a safari jeep hired just for the two of us. The views of Kilimanjaro were fantastic when approaching the lodge through the park and there was plenty of wild life to be seen. We stayed in a room that was facing the park with great views. The room was spacious enough, a double bed with mosi nets, mosi spray and torches came as standard (although we did not have to use them). Sure no tv or mini bar- but who cares? With elephants, zebra, antelope and monkeys on your doorstep who needs a tv? It was full board with three buffet style meals a day. The food quality was okay and plenty of it with a good selection. The bars were fine and we sat out watching the animals in the surrounding savanna. The staff were friendly, courteous and attentive. Out on safari we saw lions, elephants, hippos, zebra, all kinds of antelope and birds and hyenas. Not forgetting the Masi's cattle. The stay was great. Highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
