At the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, surrounded by grassland and Acacia trees, lies Amboseli Serena Lodge. Although the National Park is fairly small (392 sq km), it is so rich in both flora and fauna that it has recently been designated an international biosphere reserve. Amboseli Serena Lodge is influenced by native Masai architecture and decorated with natural woodcarvings, traditional artefacts and local art. The lodge overlooks a saltlick and a floodlit waterhole where you can see gathering herds of elephant, buffalo and wildebeest, to name but a few. This is also an excellent area for bird viewing with over 400 species of bird.
You can enjoy the comforts and the beautiful setting, in addition to the activities on offer which include game drives, morning bird walks with the lodge's resident naturalist and visits to a traditional Masai manyatta. There are also plenty of opportunities to unwind at the lodge itself, including an afternoon spent on the veranda watching the game pass by, taking a dip in the natural spring-fed swimming pool or enjoying a relaxing massage. As part of Serena Hotels' reforestation programme you will be invited to plant a tree to help restore the land that was becoming barren from herds of elephants tearing up the trees for food.
