Ol Tukai Lodge
With spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro and the golden plains, Ol Tukai Lodge is a charming, contemporary retreat situated within the pristine Amboseli National Park. Imbued with a quintessential African atmosphere and set amidst beautifully manicured lawns, the lodge’s luxury chalets offer uninterrupted views of the tranquil wilderness of the park or the snow-capped mountain in the distance.
Delicious meals are served al fresco on the main veranda, where guests have the opportunity to spot game just meters away. At the same time, the stylish Elephant Bar offers a variety of refreshing cocktails. In between game drives, guests can relax in a comfortable sitting room, play board games, or browse through the wildlife library or art gallery. A range of rejuvenating treatments is available in the beauty spa. Beautifully appointed and inviting, the chalets boast private terraces where guests can make the most of their spectacular surroundings.
