This lodge is inside the part, so some dirt road driving is required to get there. The facilites seem fairly old and worn down. I didn't have any warm water for 2 days which calls for a rude awakening. I stayed for business meetings. While the meeting room is large and very well suited for such, the projector was not... More

We arrived as a family (2 adults and 1 child, age 11) at Kilaguni for a 2-night stay as arranged by Wild Eye after staying 3 previous nights in a Serena sister lodge (Serena Mara, separate review provided). We unfortunately arrived very late (8:30pm) after a long and gruelling ground transfer from the Mara Triangle due to congestion of Kenyan... More

I had stayed here before, but we arrived a little later than planned from Mombassa by road, the sun was already setting so my parents didn't appreciate the view until they awoke the next morning and looked out over the watering hole to Killy. Everything else had the warm friendly feel you come to expect. Would definitely stay again.
