Ol Tukai Lodge

Accommodation at Ol Tukai Lodge in Kenya

Amboseli National Park is one of the most captivating and compelling wildlife areas you will ever experience on Kenya safaris to East Africa, so join Voyage2Africa on holiday at the sublime Ol Tukai Lodge. 

Stay in the Kenya wilderness where the Big 5 roams free without compromising on the comforts of 5-star luxuries and service. Spend lazy days beside the dazzling blue swimming pool between indescribable encounters with predators and prey deep inside the varied ecosystems of Amboseli, on game drives and walking safaris. 

Some travellers prefer a more exclusive, reclusive experience when they choose their Kenya safari vacation at the self-contained Kibo Villa. Find this lavish private villa completely separate from the rest of the lodge, this lovely house boasting all the ingredients for a recipe of Isolated Bliss.

We love the location of Ol Tukai Lodge, mindfully built within the ambience of Amboseli National Park where Tanzania’s famed Mount Kilimanjaro looms white and stark in the distance and which started wildlife ecotourism in 1996. 

The lodge coins its name from the local Masai community dialect, Maa, and means “Dark Palms”. This was the set for the 1948 movie, Snow at Kilimanjaro, starring Gregory Peck, Susan Hayward and Ava Gardner (based on a series of short stories by the famous Ernest Hemingway who spent much time in Africa).  

Ol Tukai Lodge is a true reflection of the rich cultural history of Amboseli National Park, a melting pot of participants and events involving the original Maasai community, the colonial Government and the early European explorers. Each one adds flavour to the authentic African Safari experience and culture in Kenya in a replica of responsible tourism and conservation.

Find this rustic chic accommodation in the heart of Amboseli National Park, cleverly designed to take advantage of its scenic environment with splendid outlooks towards the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro and the open grasslands harbouring abundant wildlife – making it a world-renowned spot to observe African Elephants.

Business travellers and leisure travellers, families and honeymoon couples all find solace at Ol Tukai Lodge in Amboseli, a safari destination dedicated to excellent service and facilities plus incredible activities in the wilderness and rest of the region to experience the very best of Kenya.

Overview

Ol Tukal Lodge provides a refreshing oasis for those seeking a jaw-dropping and sensational African bushveld experience inclusive of five star luxury, premier facilities and world class game drives every day. Extensive views towards the famous tallest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro from a site that nestles within a forest of fever and palm trees, in the heart of the picturesque Amboseli National Park in southeast Kenya. 

Undoubtedly the best place to watch elephants ranging the open plains, this top end Kenyan safari lodge provides countless photographic opportunities and excellent game viewing experiences. Whether you choose to spend lazy days by the poolside or encounter the drama of the African wilderness, you are guaranteed a fantastic time with unforgettable memories.

 Ol Tukai Lodge has drawn up a complete environmental Management Plan (EMP) staing their commitment to environmental sustainability and conservation by saving water and energy and managing their waste production. They vow to protect, conserve, use sustainable development and environmental awareness in their vision and goals going forward.

Contribute to this trending movement when you book a safari holiday in one of 80 elegantly appointed chalet-style rooms and enjoy the comfort of Kenya safari accommodation in the bushveld. Two rooms cater for disabled persons, and all chalets are built from gum trees, local river stone and slate, aesthetic tones that blend seamlessly into their natural setting. 

Sit on your private veranda with sweeping views of either Mt Kilimanjaro or the everglades. Appreciate your own tea and coffee station, fan and soft bed. And then there is Kibo Villa, a stand-alone private accommodation choice that is the idyllic venue for families or groups traveling together. 

We think that Kibo Villa is your answer to absolute indulgence, tucked away from the main lodge and the rest of the chalets in 5 acres of its own lush garden under the canopy of acacia trees. Fancy ensuite bedrooms, the main one opening onto a rooftop terrace kitted with a Jacuzzi. Relax in the plush living room, well-equipped kitchen, dining room, BBQ area as well as expansive verandas. 

Ol Tukai features a popular, open-air Elephant Bar between the lounge and dining areas, and a raised deck where guests can soak up uninterrupted vistas of the wetlands and Mount Kilimanjaro. Ask the masseuse to ease those tired muscles while you sip a cold beer.
