Ol Tukai Lodge, Amboseli
On our safari in July 2002, we stayed 3 nights at Ol Tukai Lodge.
From our point of view it has two special features:
One of the 'blocks' of cottages is actually called Kilimanjaro, since it looks out onto the mountain, so you can sit on the safari chair outside your room looking at the mountain and any passing game. If you have any say (e.g. if you are on a private safari) it is really worth requesting one of these, though actually seeing the mountain, as always, depends on the low cloud conditions.
The second attraction for us is the extensive grounds, in which many birds and lizards can easily be seen.

We were especially lucky in that the cottage we stayed in had African Hoopoes nesting in the roof. This species lays asynchronously, so just at the time we were there, it was feeding one young out on the lawn and at least one still in the nest: couldn't have been better!
