Ol Tukai Lodge

This lovely, comfortable lodge boasts an incredible setting inside Amboseli National Park.

Ol Tukai has one of the best spots in Amboseli, backed by Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, and surrounded by open plains in some of the finest elephant-watching country in the world.

Monkeys and baboons roam the grounds, and the dining room and garden terrace are just metres from the elephants, zebra and antelope that stalk the boundary. The two-storey open-air Elephant Bar is an excellent spot for cocktails; head to the upper deck level to soak up the views of the marshlands and Kilimanjaro. The lodge also has an extensive African art collection dotted throughout, and a walkway leads to a large pool surrounded by sun loungers.

The chalet-style rooms all boast wonderful views of the wetlands or of Kilimanjaro itself. All are constructed from locally-sourced materials including gum tree, river stone and slate, and have their own private terrace. Two of the rooms have been specifically designed to accommodate disabled guests.
