Mount Kilimanjaro greets you every morning when you wake up at Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge, stays with you throughout your excursions and gives you a picturesque backdrop as you enjoy a sundowner before dinner. This is the best way to describe the beauty and serenity of this resort.
It sits on an intimate section of the forest, with acacia trees hiding this luxurious lodge from the rest of Amboseli. You can see the plains and the mountain from any section of the lodge. To add to this breathtaking scenery are swamps and pools that make great spots for game watchers. Sit on a safari chair while enjoying the great view of Mount Kilimanjaro and the greenery around the swamps.
The resort’s design is unbelievably beautiful. With the African culture and land as the inspiration for every element in the hotel, the outcome is an amazing blend of African art and rooms that resemble a row of Maasai Manyattas (huts). Inside each room is a mix of African art and modern furnishings so you can have a bit of luxury while staying here.
This lodge does not only cater for holidaymakers. It also takes in couples on honeymoons, couples who wish to have a bush wedding in Amboseli National Park, corporate teams out to make some business strategies in this serene country as well as groups and families.
Though Amboseli National Park is elephant country, you can rest assured that there are so many animals to see. In fact, your daily expeditions take you to lions, buffalos, leopards, rhinos and hundreds of birds.
Monkeys keep you company in the compound as you relax in the lawns and watch wildlife activity in the park. As you relax within the lodge, you will spot different animals around the swamp such as elephants.
It is not every day that a hotel or resort gets on the Conde Nast Traveller, a world famous travel magazine that calls the shots in this industry. Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge is one of the few African hotels feted by this magazine as the best resort to stay while touring the African plains.
The Readers Choice Award run by Conde Nast Traveller saw this lodge scoop the 2012 award most of all because of its world-class rooms, location, design, excellent service and activities.
