Amboseli Serena is cozy, homy feeling, very agreable place. It is beautifully landscaped and located beside a waterhole where animals can be seen very close day and night. Rooms are smaller and simpler than other Serenas, ground level, no views, but architecturally very pleasant. Cooling is by a fan, a mosquito net encircles the bed, which is important because some...

I came here after spending two nights in Kilaguni Serena. Everything was a notch higher from the previous destination. The food, the facility etc. Especially the food, it was way better, the selection was great. The place is even more homely. At night you get to see animals grazing near the lodge. The bar setting is also fantastic. The downside...

We had 2 nights here during our multi stop safari, game viewing in this park is awesome, we saw everything we expected and more, plus the backdrop of Kilimanjaro is the icing on the cake for any picture. Staff here seem to spend a lot of time watching your wallet rather than doing their job, overdosed on the tip culture...

The second camp we stayed at on our trip, the staff were polite and helpful, our room was clean and well equipped although it was very hot at night even with the fan on.The food was good and varied. We had some fantastic game drives here and seeing kilimanjiro was truly awesome.

Between June and July, our goal was to visit at least three Kenyan National parks/reserves. Amboseli was number on that list. We stayed at Amboseli Serena Lodge. It was a treat! Even when we heard an unknown animal outside our window. The surroundings were absolutely amazing. I like everything thing about the hotel. There was nothing to complain about.

It was great to come back to such a wonderful lodge, I recognised a lot of staff from a trip 5 years ago, which is great to see. Still a great property, with a nice atmosphere. Yet another great experience. Can't wait to come back again!

I loved ambosseli serena,Joseph at the front desk was amazing. It was a last minute booking but all our needs were catered for. We booked a triple and got an upgrade of two rooms. The food was good, the first night the beef wasn't that great but after that they did not disappoint. Loved the amenities the pool is clean...

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 nights here and enjoyed plenty of game. The place caters well to children and families and despite being nearly fully booked,we were well attended to. Problems on check-in were quickly resolved and all staff were helpful and courteous without giving me the feeling like they were being polite just for tips. There is a genuine...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest Mountain; beside a copse of giant Acacia trees and gently flowing natural spring. In the clean, crisp air of an Amboseli dawn, the snowcapped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro shimmering in the southern sky, you can sit atop a volcanic throne in the middle of the Masai plains and see the world. ... more   less
