This place has been overdue a great review for some time. So I am writing one 3 years after being here. This was our first lodge on our trip to Kenya and it set the bar real high for the rest. We landed here in the evening, exhausted after the drive and a lost baggage ordeal. I remember all of... More

Wow. There is a watering hole and just about every room has a view. We enjoyed elephants bathing themselves at all hours. During dinner we had the excitement of watching a leopard stalking a baby giraffe at the watering hole until a waterbuck warned the herd animal off. The water buffalos are there constantly and a ton of zebras come... More

Probably my favourite place we stayed in our 2 week safari. Just loved the view from the restaurant and seating area. Made me just relax and smile sitting there looking out at the waterhole and amazing views. The staff were excellent - especially the man at the pool who was really nice to the kids. As mentioned in other reviews... More

Kilaguni Serena is definitely the best lodge we stayed at during our Safari. The restaurant area is astonishing, with its high ceiling and african decoration. The view of the pond and surrounding area is fantastic. The food is good -aways buffet on lodges- and staff is kind. The other lodges we stayed at were not even close to this one.... More

We stayed here in December 2014 on our way to Mombasa. It is an amazing hotel. The rooms are well equipped with a balcony. The view from the restaurant is absolutely stunning. The service from staff was great. The park us not best in Kenya for wildlife but the outlook from the hotel more than makes up for this. One... More
