“GOOD RESORT”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

I stayed there for 2 nights with my family. It is a good resort having tented accommodation. The tents are spacious & are very clean. The bathrooms are very modern with bath cubicles & shower panel. The electricity is available for certain time periods only as it is by generator. The staff is good & very courteous. They have a good restaurant & a bar. The food is buffet style for both the meals & the buffet spread is large. The only drawback is that the quality of food is average. But Mt. Kilimanjaro gives it a very beautiful backdrop. Overall a good place to stay when you visit Amboseli National Park.

With a view of Kilimanjaro this camp is very nice. The food was very good and there was a man who would cook you a pizza to taste. The tents were comfy but not elegant as other places were. Well fitted with a kettle and many sockets. Would recommend.

We stayed there for a couple of nights and were very impressed. The tents were very comfortable and spacious with a verandah at the back where one can spend time watching Kilimanjaro.

The electricity is switched off after 10:30 PM and it gets very dark, good point being you can see a lot many more stars than when you are in the city. For city dwellers the sounds of the night especially crickets and the wind in the bushes is quite unnerving, at least the first night.

Food is fairly good, very limited fares for vegetarian, and Indians with religious issues, be warned, that beef and pork is served at the same buffet table in the restaurant.

It gets chilly at night, so the swimming pool water temperature is not conducive for a swim, for sure, even in the late afternoon.

Kilimanjaro View Point is a place you can spend a few hours with ease. There is a pond nearby where animals come to drink, in the morning.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and thought it was fantastic. The room/tent was nice and big and airy, and the bathroom clean. It was wonderful waking up to the sounds of Africa, with the birds and zebra in particular. It's in a great location, right near Amboseli National Park, so it doesn't take long to get to the park for game drives. We went to the Mt Kilimanjaro lookout at the camp and there was an elephant hanging out by the pond on the other side of the fence! It was great! The food was fine, not gourmet, but tasty and generous serves. And the pizza was delicious! The pool and gardens are lovely and the staff friendly. We were very satisfied with our stay here!

We arrived at Sentrim Amboseli to be shown to our tent which was pretty close to the lobby. As the tent flaps had been closed, it was extremely warm inside and it took us about 30 minutes to open up the window flaps to let the air through and cool things up. Unfortunately, arriving at lunch time left us with no electricty and we could not turn on the fan. The tent is spacious, and the bathroom was clean.

We found the foood to be delicious and the main chef at the buffet very courteous. However, it was very annoying when my daughter was getting hit at by the server at the pizza counter. She went by herself, and he purposely delayed her pizza (and eventually overcooked it!) as he wanted to ask her personal questions. The following day at breakfast it was like he was stalking her, and would appear at every serving station she would go to. It got so bad that she refused to get up from her table and go get pizza.

I found the lock to the tent very annoying - it was a padlock at the bottom of the tent, that would be very hard to open. When we asked the reception desk for a new lock, the girl at the front counter seemed to look at us like we were asking her a big favor, but said that she would have it ready when we returned from our safari. We returned from our safari, and when we found no new lock and went to ask her, she looked like she didn't know what we were talking about. Eventually, after about one hour, a man came to our tent and poured water into our lock (yes, water!) and it seemd to work.

Good location, but was disappointed with the front desk service, where the employees looked like they have never ever had any customer service or hospitality training.

Both the accomodation and the food was avarage. Perhaps you can find a better accomodation here. The staff was friendly but they could not make up for the weak points of the accomodation. The place has nice gardens of herbs and a dedicated viewpoint overlooking to Mt. Kilimanjaro - although the view is limited by clouds during the daytime.
