A very nice resort inside the Amboseli National Park, The mountain view and the elephant view rooms are excellent and you feel very close to nature. The staff is helpful and pleasing - especially the restaurant staff. Will definitely stay again if possible and would definitely recommend this resort.

This lodge is charming and is in a fantastic location. The staff were friendly and were always interested to know about our day. The lodge has scheduled "No electricity times" throughout the day, however they are scheduled during the game drive times! Therefore did not impact us! The grounds are very well maintained and the pool area is really nice....
