Amboseli Safari Lodge

In the Land of Giants

An intimate lodge in the heart of Kimana Sanctuary, Kenya’s first community-owned conservancy, renowned for its lush landscape and remarkable density of wildlife — along with its famed backdrop, Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Set within a Fever Tree forest where some of Africa’s last Super Tuskers roam ­— elephants with tusks so large they drag along the ground as they walk — Angama Amboseli is a gentle start or finish to any East African safari.

A Wilderness Jewel

With just 10 Guest Suites in a private wildlife conservancy, Angama Amboseli is respite from the world. A haven for the prolific elephant population in this ecosystem, get up close to the relaxed resident herds and their calves as they saunter through the Sanctuary just as you do. The rough texture found on the exterior of the buildings is also a gift from the elephants — their dung, mixed with concrete.

Exclusive traversing rights and unrestricted game viewing, guests can enjoy everything from night drives to early morning Pyjama Safaris

With nods to Angama’s other properties and designed by the same team, the inspiration here is the elephants — their rounded shapes and bold, playful nature

Each Guest Area and Suite has been designed around uninterrupted views of Kili even from the bed to the vanity mirror

Guests can explore Amboseli National Park, a 45-minute drive from the lodge, home to over 400 bird species and an array of wildlife
