Amboseli Serena Lodge
In the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, beside a copse of giant Acacia trees and a gently flowing natural spring, stands Amboseli Serena Lodge. All around the lodge roams the big game that have made East Africa legendary – lion, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, baboon, gazelle and wildebeest. More wild elephant can be seen in Amboseli National Park than almost anywhere else on the continent.
With Kilimanjaro’s 6,000 meter snow-capped peaks presiding over the landscape, the setting is unrivalled. Influenced by native Maasai architecture, the lodge is in perfect harmony with its environment. Beautifully landscaped gardens, unique guest services and exceptional amenities enhance the distinctive ambience.
The uniquely constructed guest rooms, individually appointed with authentic Africana and murals painted by a renowned local artist, convey a distinctive Maasai Manyatta mood. Grouped in the manner of a Maasai village, each room enjoys a view of either majestic Mount Kilimanjaro or the expansive Amboseli plains which are home to herds of elephant that feed on the large, feathery acacia trees.
Overlooking the saltlick and floodlit waterhole, the open air dining room serves guests sumptuous international menus,
buffets and barbecues alongside authentic African dishes. The full service bar – located next to the dining room – serves fresh fruit juices, soft drinks, tea and coffee, cocktails, wines, spirits and liqueurs. There is another small bar by the outdoor pool.
At least once a week guests are treated to a traditional African feast that is accompanied by Maasai tribal dancing. At this special event, guest tables overlook the waterhole where the big game gathers.
