This is a beautiful place to stay. As a family, it was wonderful to watch the elephants and Rhino come and graze at the pool near the hotel after a wonderful safari in the Game Park provided by All seasons safaris. The rooms are beautiful and the staff extremely helpful and friendly.

I had visited this place only yesterday and amazed to see see the way they have created this beautiful tent camp resort in such a remote place. Staff and hospitality was excellent. Food was superb. The safari game they organize is also superb and the driver took all great care to ensure that we visit most of the animals. Watching... More

As expected, the service is excellent, staff we're very friendly and the food topped it all. The tents are very spacious and well furnished, it gets quite chilly after dark so the hot water bottles room service place in the beds every evening is a nice touch. There's lots of game that comes to the watering hole in the evenings... More

As I was at the end of contract for working in Kenya, my family and 2 friends went to Sweetwaters Serena camp, for final farewells. The trip was tinged with sadness at our leaving but we had a fantastic and memorable time. As we arrived at lunch time, our animal encounters began with bush buck and giraffe St the watering...

Worst hotel ever!! The tent was extremely dirty, the beds were also dirty, don't even ask about the bathroom and shower inside the tent, bad service all time, no internet, bad food. Don't ever stay there. Extremely bad experience in that "hotel"

We stayed at the Serena Camp for the weekend. It was quiet, not a lot of people when we were there. We had our own van and were able to do the drives at our leisure, however we did book on a night drive. The receptionist was easy to talk with and booked us straight in for the following evening....

Sweetwaters Serena is located in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy and I stayed there for 2 nights and at the Ol Pejeta Bush Camp for 3 nights. I would encourage you to do your homework and think about what you'd like to get out of your visit. Sweetwaters is for folks who'd like the option of a massage, a Zumba dancing... More

Sweetwaters was the perfect spot for a one night retreat before heading home at the end of our two-week mission trip! The tents are just lovely and very comfortable. Our teams' tents were located on the watering hole which was an added bonus. A small family of elephants came by after dark for dinner - we were less than 15... More
