Amboseli Serena Safari 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. With Kilimanjaro's near 6000 meter snow capped summit presiding over the landscape, the setting is unrivalled. All around the odge roams the big game that has made East Africa legendary - lion, buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, baboon, gazelle, and wildebeest. Almost nowhere else on the continent can more wild elephant be seen than in Amboseli National Park. Influencd by the native Masai architecture, the lodge is in perfect harmony with its environment. Guest rooms, individually appointed with authentic Africana and murals painted by a renowned local artist, convey a distinctive Masai Manyatta mood.
96 rooms. Traditional feasts and tribal dancing overlooking the waterhole where big game gathers. Guests are invited to participate in the lodge's Reforesation Programme by planting a tree. "Out of Africa" jogging trails. Swimming Pool. In the evenings, Masai dance performances, music, and entertaining, informative talks on indigenous culture by the lodge naturalist. Game drives three times a day.
