The lodge is getting on but the rooms clean & comfortable. We both enjoyed the dinner & breakfast at the restaurant. Thought the service for drinks slow but have since found that to be a Kenyan thing. The room balcony is where all the animal action at the waterhole is viewed from although you can do the same from the... More

Quaint, small rooms each with comfy verandahs to sit and watch the waterhole and enjoy te animals. Very peaceful, quiet and relaxing. Good food and bar. A nice touch to the walking safari with tea, coffee, cake and whiskey provided in the middle of the bush. Well worth a visit!

We came to Africa to see animals and this was our first night in Kenya. We were not disappointed. Sitting on our balcony in the evening, we looked up to see 30 elephants walking out of the forest to drink at the watering hole that the resort is built next to. It was breathtaking. What else could we ask for?

Stayed two nights here between excursions. This is an old lodge, very quaint. First off, rooms are small as is bathroom. But it has an ambience to it that I like. We were there when they were nit very busy, so I cannot attest to noise from other rooms. The staff and exceptional service make this place. Outstanding in so... More

We stayed for one night as part of a Cheetah safari. Unfortunately the weather was poor with a lot of rain which meant very few animals at the waterhole. This, however, did not spoil our enjoyment of this lovely lodge. The rooms were very comfortable and all have an outside balcony so overlooking the water hole

I was blown away.. The views as we drove in (buffalo and the full moon close enough to touch), the reception by Serena staff (who obviously really enjoy their work), and the mouthwatering food! The rooms have a great view of the watering hole, so saw quite a number of animals coming to drink. I have never felt at home,... More

loved the location in the mountains with the watering hole infront of all the rooms. They even illuminate the hole at night and wake you up if requested when a interessting animal appeares. A small but nice balcony. Dinner was amazing, great quality and a custom salad prepared by the chef at the table, just perfect. A bed warmer in... More

I was here in may 2014, I really enjoyed my stay here and the food here, the views are really amazing and the balconies give guests an amazing view of the water hole which is really good. I however felt as if I was at the treetops as the design is the same but thats okay. I like the way... More
