In the backdrop of Kilimanjaro


Amboseli-National-Park


Amboseli is 300 kilometers from the Coast, or seven hours of hard travel by road, but only one hour by air, with the chance to view the Majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain.
Home to hundreds of giant Big Tusker elephants with spellbinding scenery that can only be described as out of this world, the Amboseli region will have you feeling as if you were back in the time when giants roamed the earth.
With its emerald-green, perennial swamps lying like mirrors of glass beneath the brooding shadow and swirling cloud of Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli is like an oasis in the dry savannah and one that attracts some of Kenya's greatest concentrations of game.
Herds of magnificent elephant, bloats of hungry hippo and an array of wandering plains game converge on the permanent swamps and lakes to graze and drink and can be viewed against the strikingly beautiful backdrop of Kilimanjaro, an 'Out of Africa' scene that is instantly recognisable.
Explore this magnificent region with us on a visit to one of the superb national parks on the region, the most famous of which is Amboseli National Park, famed for their incredible elephant population and thousands of resident year-round game.

Kenya Safari Seasons

KENYA SAFARI SEASONS

The weather in Kenya is good for safaris at all times of year, though there is a greater chance of encountering rain from mid-April to the end of May and in November. Some people like to travel in these “rainy” months when dramatic cloud formations gather over the Mara plains, there is a sense of refreshment and grasslands are carpeted in new flowers.
Daily temperatures are influenced by altitude, so in the higher areas like Samburu you need a fleece for the cool early morning drives, but by 9am this is discarded as temperatures rise to the high 20s.
After a delicious lunch you take a siesta during the warm early afternoon with temperatures in the low 30s. Head out on safari around 4pm as it gets cooler and the animals start moving, remembering to take the fleece for when the sun has dipped below the horizon.
Weather is more a consideration at the coast, so don’t visit the Kenya coast from the first week of April to the first few days of June as the rains are heavier in coastal areas. At all other times of year the Kenya coast weather is warm, gently humid and breezy, at its very best from late November through to March.

We Create Dreams

Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge

Set against the magnificent backdrop of Africa's highest mountain, the glittering Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge enjoys a uniquely privileged position at the heart of this world-famous national park.
Secluded within a grove of acacia trees, the lodge looks out over the golden savannah plains, with uninterrupted views of the mountain itself. Close by are a series of emerald green swamps, which are fed by the melting snows of Kilimanjaro. These, the only sources of water in this otherwise starkly beautiful but arid park, attract huge numbers of wallowing elephants, hippos, buffalos and plains game. Meanwhile, from the prehistoric site of Observation Hill, the sunset over Kilimanjaro is magnificent.
At the centre of ‘Maasailand', the lodge's décor reflects the brilliant primary colours and iconic shapes representative of these legendary warriors. At the heart of the lodge, shaded by palm trees, is a free-form swimming pool; to either side of which stretch the rooms. Each room is housed in a single storey building opening directly on to the grounds, each reflecting a Maasai manyatta theme: each with its own hand-painted wall frescos.
The central dining area is reached by a timbered bridge over a melt-water stream, while the lounge and bar feature a broad terrace and a blazing fire-pit where evening cocktails can be enjoyed. Activities include daily game drives in custom-built traditional safari vehicles, ‘sundowners' on Observation Hill, bush breakfasts, bush dinners, Maasai dance performances, visits to Maasai villages and tree-planting programmes.
