Certificate of Excellence
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.

Excellent experience - beautiful views regardless of which side your room is facing. Either a breathtaking view of Kilimanjaro, or wildlife right outside your front door. The staff/food were amazing. My children enjoyed the beautiful pool, and I enjoyed watching the wildlife j

We only stayed for one night, and were very pleasantly surprised. Warm welcome, friendly staff, lovely rooms and good food! I particularly liked the bed and had the best sleep of my 2 weeks in Kenya in Amboseli Serena Lodge!

Beautiful lodge nestled on the southern Kenyan border in Amboseli. Great accommodations with friendly staff. Loved the restaurant as well, great variety of offerings. Prices can be pretty steep though.

This is a splendid retreat in Amboseli. The rooms are spacious and luxurious when you consider there are wild animals all around.
The service was good and so was the food on choice.
A sure recommend for the future.

I understand from the website that normal rooms face the watering hole whereas suites face Kilimanjaro, is that correct? And if so, which view is better? Thanks
I have stayed at Serena three times. The choice of rooms are not that important. You will be out during the day time and in the afternoons the best view (and its great) of the watering whole is being seated at a common area close to the main building (and get served a nice cool drink).

Hello, Yes that is correct on both cases. we would advise that you choose the room facing the swamp, not water hole as you will be able to see animals stop by to drink water, also where most of the action happens. Hope that helps and looking to have you staying with us soon.

Do you offer one way airport transfer service from your hotel to the Nairobi International airport? If so how much does it cost and how long does it take?
I am sure they can arrange transport, but I doubt its going to be free as its about 4 hours drive.

We will be staying at the Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge and since it would be in the middle of our trip we were wondering what the cost is for the hotel to do our laundry. If anyone has an idea on the pricing we would appreciate it. Thanks.
I don't remember specifically but the cost of laundry at the lodges we stayed was very low compared to what we have seen in N America and W Europe.
