“Stay at Amboseli”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Had a very enjoyable stay. Nice rooms and good service. Food was a bit limited in main courses and desserts could definitely have been better.location is good and near the game park so best utilization of time. Lack of door in the toilet area may create problems for other than married couples.

Room Tip: Rooms nearer to the reception would reduce the walking distance for meals, going out etc,.

It's located outside of the park, which isn't the end of the world, as it's just a few hundred yards from the entrance. The food was good, and the grounds are beautiful. The tent entrances were a bit difficult (you have to lock up your tent using a padlock on the tent zippers) and there is no safe, which was a bit disappointing, but really, I'm nitpicking. The food was pretty good, although I have had better at other camps.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night and were not disappointed. Although, if there was a way to do it, I'd more likely give this place 3.5 stars instead of 4.

Sentrim has all luxury tented camps, and when they say luxury, they mean it! :) The tents are HUGE, and have hot water kettles, hair dryers, a safe etc.

We were slightly disappointed with the dinner service here, but nothing major. Food is pretty good, breakfast was great.

Another thing, it is located outside the park so there's no view as such, except the viewpoint from which you can get good views of Mt Kilimanjaro. But none of the animals. :(

All in all, the accommodation is great, but there's no feeling of being close to the animals which was very necessary for us.

I stayed here with a group of 36 high school students and 10 chaperones in April 2010. The accommodations were tremendous and the scenery stunning. The tents are located at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro, and are very well appointed. Meals were excellent and the staff was extremely friendly. We toured through a number of national parks in Kenya, and Amboseli was by far my favourite in terms of the wildlife we were able to see. I would return in a heartbeat.

I've spent the last 2 days of my Kenya Safari experience at the Sentrim.
Great location, very cose to the game park and to teh Kilimanjaro viewpoint.

Tends are spacious and comfortable...even though if it is windy at night, curtains will blow all over
as the tent has got windows open nets!!!!!

Food is ok .....even though they allow cats to wonder about int the dining room dueing meal times! (I do not like it!!!); staff is great, all very friendly.

Totally enjoyed the stay!!!

We was stay here from 1 night after a safari in Amboseli Park.
Our rooms was very clean and confortable with all the benifits of 4 star hotel (no TV please :-) )
There was also a swimming pool, a little souvenir shop and a good restaurant.
Dinner and breakfast was very good with a wide choices of plates and foods.

A beautifull places to stay and relax after a day of REAL safari!

This camp is excellent, we have had such a good time here and even extended our stay. You are welcomed with singing and dancing by all staff, with a drink and fresh juice. Wonderful ambiance, pool and pool bar, spa/massage, delicious plentiful, freshly cooked food, beautiful gardens, lovely and friendly staff, great tent, fully furnished, good quality giftshop, viewing point Kilimanjaro and very close to the Kimani gate of Amboseli. You can hear wildlife at night from your comfortable tent with pretty bathroom, but it is perfectly safely guarded by fences. Can't wait to be back here!
