With the world-famous peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro as its backdrop, Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge enjoys truly spectacular views, best taken in from the aptly named Observation Hill – a nearby prehistoric site. But it’s not just Africa’s tallest mountain that gets the camera snapping. The lodge is set amid a grove of acacia trees, looking out over golden savannah and emerald-green swamps fed by Kilimanjaro’s melt water. As a rare source of hydration, you can expect to spot everything from elephants and buffalos to hippos and plains game. It’s all part of the Amboseli National Park.


With the lodge found right in the Maasai heartlands, it takes its style notes from these legendary warriors. Expect bright primary colours, wall frescoes and rich fabrics across the tastefully appointed rooms. Each opens right onto the lodge’s grounds with private verandahs making the most of the garden views. However, it’s the Ol Donyo Oibor Suite that impresses most, complete with Jacuzzi, tailored minibar and rooftop-terrace views of Mt. Kilimanjaro itself.


Crossing a melt-water stream on the camp’s timbered bridge, you’ll arrive at the garden-ringed dining room. Dotted with Maasai artefacts, table d’hôte dinners showcase the best in Kenyan cuisine, with roasted meats and posho maize among the highlights. There’s also a range of international options, including homemade pastas, Mongolian stir-fries and English breakfasts. For something special, book onto a private dinner in the national park, with a bush kitchen and bar set up for your delectation. The venue of choice? Observation Hill.


The dining room also shares its idyllic setting with a broad terrace and blazing fire pit – the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner from the bar. Don’t miss out on the expertly mixed cocktails. The palm-shaded swimming pool and sun deck provide further opportunity for some relaxation while dance performances and community visits showcase the local Maasai culture. However, you’ll want to head out on the twice-daily game drives, with the expert guides pointing out the national park’s 700 swamp elephants – Kenya’s only herd.
