Set against the magnificent backdrop of Africa's highest mountain, the glittering Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge enjoys a uniquely privileged position at the heart of this world-famous National Park.
Secluded within a grove of acacia trees, the lodge looks out over the golden savannah plains, with uninterrupted views of the mountain itself. Close by are a series of emerald green swamps, which are fed by the melting snows of Kilimanjaro. These, the only sources of water in this otherwise starkly beautiful but arid Park, attract huge numbers of wallowing elephants, hippos, buffalos and plains game. Meanwhile, from the prehistoric site of Observation Hill, the sunset over Kilimanjaro is magnificent.
The decor reflects the brilliant primary colours and iconic shapes representative of the legendary Masai warriors.
The dining area is reached by a timbered bridge over a melt-water stream, while the lounge and bar feature a broad terrace and a blazing fire-pit where evening cocktails can be enjoyed.
Activities include daily game drives in custom-built traditional safari vehicles, sundowners on Observation Hill, bush breakfasts, bush dinners, Masai dance performances, visits to Masai villages and tree-planting programmes. The swimming pool and sundeck offer a relaxing venue for a spot of sunbathing in between activities.
Each of the 92 rooms open directly onto the grounds.
Each tastefully-appointed room features a Masai-inspired, hand-painted, wall fresco, a kingsized bed or luxurious twin beds, lavish all-encompassing mosquito-curtaining, bathroom (with walk-in shower), a writing/vanity unit, and a private veranda. All rooms have a ceiling fan.
Family rooms are also available.
