We brought a group of 10 ladies to the lodge for a Bachelorette party based on the bride's previous positive experience. The location and rooms were fabulous. Due to a hiccup and misunderstanding, the manager Kennedy went above and beyond by upgrading us to a beautiful room and complimentary wine and champagne. it was appreciated and we will return!

The gorgeous Ol Tukai Lodge in Amboseli National Park delivers an uninhibited view on Kilimanjaro. Although not being really cheap, the price of a stay is worth every penny. Cabins are rather luxurious and look out on to the wide savanna plains, with their continuous trek of wildlife. The beds are very comfortable and nights are peaceful, though incidentally interrupted...

It is located on the savanna of Amboseli and one can view elephants, hippos, warthogs, zebras, wildebeast, lions,and a variety of birds from the porch of our room with binoculars. Our room was beautiful, spacious, clean and quiet. The baboons and monkeys will come...

I had a nice overnight in Ol Tukai, with two nice game drives. I was on my way to Arusha, and figured I’d get a car from the lodge to the border, walk across, and then get a taxi to Arusha. Instead of taking the nice Land Cruiser from the lodge, I thought I’d give my friend’s contact some business....

Service was excellent during our 3 day stay during the conference in May 2016. You wake up to a spectacular view of the Mt. Kilimanjaro and the wild animals. The bathing experience is unforgettable it gives the traditional African River bathing experience of bush bathing.
