Accommodation rating: Superior
Amboseli Serena Lodge offers classic scenery of tall Acacia trees fronted by massive herds of Elephants roaming in the shadow the Africa's tallest mountain - Mt. Kilimanjaro. The lodge itself draws on a subtle Maasai cultural motif, featuring natural woodcarvings, traditional artefacts and a glowing selection of local art. Sensitively located and built from ecologically sympathetic materials, its architectural shapes, style, textures and colours reflect the true essence of the African bush. The rooms are styled to a traditional Maasai concept featuring beadwork, gourds, hand-painted murals and the clever use of the traditional manyatta bent-brushwood effect so as to blend an authentic nomadic aura with all the comforts of unabashed five star luxuries. Guests can also enjoy an acacia-shaded swimming pool fed daily by the melt-waters of Kilimanjaro, a selection of natural timber game viewing decks, a water hole for the animals and an alluring selection of watering holes for the guests. There is the choice of dining al fresco, under canvas, by hurricane lamp or by the candle-lit elegance and roaring log fires of the dining room.
