Amboseli Lodges

An Emphasis on Experience

Amboseli lodges are varied both in size and location. Ranging from large, hotel-type lodges to intimate bush camps with only half a dozen tents, accommodation may be set within Amboseli Park itself or in adjoining private reserves or conservancies. Several are positioned for postcard-perfect views of Mount Kilimanjaro while others are set on Maasai tribal land, offering you the chance to walk with red-robed warriors and visit local communities for a fascinating insight into village life.

Some Amboseli accommodation – small, private and luxurious – features among our top recommendations for romantic travellers and honeymooners; other camps are more suitable for families and come complete with 2-bedroom chalets or interconnecting family units. You’ll find some camps well-equipped with swimming pools, massage tables and even complimentary Wi-Fi. You’ll also find camps that are more rustic in nature, featuring traditional bucket showers and tented suites.

Activities offered at Amboseli lodges focus on wildlife. Early morning and late afternoon game drives are the most rewarding and there is often the opportunity to go on a full-day safari to make the most out of your Amboseli experience – ideal if you only have one day there. Accommodations in private conservancies offer their guests additional activities – guided nature walks and spot-lit night drives – while most lodges will have Maasai song and dance shows as part of their evening entertainment. Many offer opportunities to visit local villages for a taste of Maasai life on the savannah.

What to do in Amboseli

Activities to Look Forward To

1. Go on a game drive

Go on morning & afternoon game drives with expert guides to see Amboseli’s wildlife; vehicles are open sided & raised off the ground for easy views & photography. Some lodges offer a full-day game drive with picnic lunch.

2. See Mount Kilimanjaro

The soft light of dawn & sunset gives the best views of Africa’s highest peak but ‘Kili’ is an awe-inspiring sight any time of day, especially with a herd of elephants grazing on the savannah in front of it.

3. Walk Amboseli

Accommodations located in private concessions offer their guests guided nature walks as an extra activity. Usually enjoyed after the morning drive, these walks are a great way to view the smaller details & for birdwatchers to tick off a few more species.

4. Meet the Maasai

Many Amboseli lodges offer their guests not just the chance to sit back & watch nightly shows of traditional Maasai song & dance but opportunities to travel to local communities & meet the red-robed Maasai people in their own environment.

5. Explore by Night

Privately situated lodges in Amboseli offer night drives in addition to morning & afternoon drives. Armed with a spotlight, your guide will be on the lookout for Africa’s rarely seen nocturnal wildlife, including honey badgers, eagle-owls & bush babies.

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!
