Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge is a sprawling, Maasai-influenced lodge on the edge of the Amboseli National Park in south-east Kenya. Mount Kilimanjaro – Africa's tallest peak, and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world – looms large in the view when her attendant clouds permit. The 96 rooms are simple adobe structures with a cheery veneer of Maasai-ness: woven stick wall hangings, murals of East Africa scenery, and rustic furniture hand-crafted from a source of local wood that is sustained by the lodge's plant-a-tree conservation programme.
The dining hall at Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge features yet more African artistry and décor; the lounge opens onto an outdoor sitting area and campfire from where you often see elephants and other Amboseli plains game. A swimming pool is fed by a natural spring rising on Mt. Kilimanjaro and shaded by a dense canopy of acacia trees. The salon offers beauty treatments, therapeutic massages, and hairdressing.
Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge is on the edge of Kenya's Amboseli National Park and, on clear days, in full view of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The lodge offers game drives where, because of the flat plains and minimal scrub cover, you have a good chance of seeing Africa's famed game including lion, elephant, zebra, wildebeest, and many species of bird. Make your stay an active one with sunset drives; bush walks; birding walks; visits to Maasai villages; participatory conservation programmes; cultural and educational presentations; Maasai dancing; and al fresco bush dinners.
