Let me just start by saying that if you are considering to come to this place, stop considering and actually just book it now. In all my hotel/camp vacation spots, this has to be at the top (together with Lantana Galu Beach in Mombasa, Kenya). The place hosts a few tents, so it is never crowded, something I know many...

Took my wife here for our 2nd anniversary and as always the ambiance, the service and the views are absolutely spectacular. I have always enjoyed the hospitality of the Serena staff. Thanks Stephen Maingi and co for making this a memorable experience.

My husband surprised me with 8 years wedding anniversary at Serena Elementiata lodge. The place is amazing...the views...awesome with the lake and wildlife. The service is 5 star...Serena never dissapoints....the rooms are lovely, spacious and luxurious. A great place to unwind. ..will definitely make a repeat visit...

We have been visiting Kenya/Tanzania for 14 years. This time we decided to stay for 1 night at Serena Elementeita Camp, on our way to the Masaai Mara. Our trip to Nakuru National Park was a big disappointment as the lake is badly flooded and has been for 3 years! nearly all the flamingos have gone and 75% of the... More

Great service,beautiful and serene surroundings. Dissapointing they do not allow families with children under the age of 7. Need to consider how to accomodate this group of clients,who have been frequent visitors. TL

SIMPLY FABULOUS. Before we booked our safari through Lion World, we looked at the professional photos of Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp and thought "too good to be true". The fact is, everything was better than the staged photos! We were blown away. Stunning tents with lux amenities, gorgeous landscape, wonderful and welcoming staff, delicious food (the kitchen even has its... More

We stopped into Lake Elmenteita between safaris at Lewa and the Masai Mara. En route we weren't sure it could be worth the long drive for only one night but upon arrival up we near instantly wished we had booked in for two. The main tent is subtly luxurious and softly lit with an impeccable view of the lake. The... More

Location: Right at the boarder of lake Elementaita. Rooms: Very spacious rooms looking like tents. Service: Eager to bring a good service and very attentive personnel. Some room for improvement - how to pour a wine and how much to pour into a glass. Temperature: It was really cold in July and therefore we needed a fleece jacket during dinner,... More

Stayed one night recently (5 of us with 3 tents). Rooms are huge with enormous bathrooms that are clean and rooms very well appointed. Location of the property is off the beaten path but is idyllic on the shores of Lake Elementeita. It is a great place to relax and take in the lake and staff is exceedingly helpful. Food... More

One thing i was certain about when booking this accommodation is that one can never go wrong with serena properties. We booked two nights in the camp and the place was simply luxurious. The tents are about a dozen or more and detached from each other. Each of them has a great view of Lake elementaita which is a few... More
