The guest cottages and the lodge house are beautifully constructed to have a perfect view of the snow capped Mount Kilimanjaro and have a magnificent view of the game that feeds around the hotel. The cottages face the game park and the mountain, so one wakes up to the beautiful sunrise and animals trooping around to graze. The rooms are... More

On arrival, the Walkway to lodge was authentic and surrounding lush green....monkeys a bit arrogant but funny...we were received with a smile and friendliness and the reception area is tastefully beautiful and...

We were greeted immediately with a hot towel and drink. Registration was very simple. Great view of the animals and Mt. Kilimanjaro. Lunch was served outside and breakfast and dinner inside. Food was very good. Ol Tukai lodge is located in Amboseli National Park with animals all around and close by.

Animal viewing - even from the grounds of the Lodge - was just great. And birds were everywhere. The rooms were very comfortable and well-maintained, and one could... More
