Ol Tukai Lodge


Classic East African safari experience

The manicured gardens and grounds surrounding Ol Tukai Lodge make it look more like a country retreat than a safari lodge in Amboseli National Park, south-east Kenya. A spindly fence keeps the elephants – for which this lodge has become famous – at a safe distance from your private patio and, on clear days, Kilimanjaro makes a spectacular backdrop for your wildlife and scenic photography. Ol Tukai Lodge is tucked into a dense forest of acacia trees that, along with the elephants, thrive on the swampy surrounds; the buildings, though elaborate, make full use of eco-friendly design principles and compliment the dramatic scenery with open sides, large terraces, and inviting interiors.

Ol Tukai Lodge has 80 rooms spread out beneath the trees in units of four. Each room has an en suite bathroom and a private terrace with a view of the elephant marsh or Kilimanjaro. The Kibo Villa is an exclusive retreat with three en suite rooms and the very best in luxury furnishings. The living area features a dining room and lunch terrace within metres of the elephants' path; a bar and a lounge; a curio shop; a small chapel; business facilities; and a swimming pool with a snack bar in attendance.

Ol Tukai – despite the onomatopoeic name – is one of the newer lodges in Kenya's Amboseli National Park. Built in 1996, the lodge has been designed to provide a constant safari experience. The plains of Amboseli are visible from almost everywhere and Kilimanjaro looms eerily into almost every picture you take. Activities at Ol Tukai lodge include a guided bird walk – over 150 species recorded at the lodge, game drives, conservation exhibitions, and a taste of African culture from a troupe of Maasai dancers.
