Best Places To Stay In Amboseli National Park; Safari Lodges

The iconic pictures of elephants strolling around at the foot of the stunning Kilimanjaro backdrop epitomises this park. The scenery is beautiful, the game is good but predators not as dense here than in parks such as the Mara. Amboseli can get very busy, but it is definitely a photographers dream. 


Located over to the west of Amboseli NP, Tortilis is located in one of the best areas, away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to have easy access to the park. One of the longest running of the Cheli and Peacock lodges, it has long been a favourite with clients, keen to see the famous elephants with the famous backdrop. All in all a great choice for those wanting to see elephants in particular.

Amboseli Porini

Similar to its sister camps in the Mara, Amboseli Porini Camp has kept to the basics of safari and is a real find in what is a growingly expensive marketplace. With simple, but clean and tidy tents, all featuring fully flush loos and spacious dressing and sleeping areas, the accommodation is comfortable. The only apparent drawback to the lodge is its location outside the park…but we actually think that this is its main benefit! Outside the park avoids Amboseli's crowds. The game in the concession is actually very good and a stay just here will definitely give you all that you need without needing to join the mêlée going on nearby. Again, a great choice for those on a limited budget.
