Travelers' Choice
Situated on the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest Mountain; beside a copse of giant Acacia trees and gently flowing natural spring. In the clean, crisp air of an Amboseli dawn, the snowcapped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro shimmering in the southern sky, you can sit atop a volcanic throne in the middle of the Masai plains and see the world.

We stayed at 6 different Serena Lodges on our safari trip. Each one was perfect in its own way. All had excellent service and a great selection of food. The uniqueness of each to fit its surrounding made for a memorable trip.

Last place we stayed on our safari didn't disappoint! The landscaping was gorgeous (the nicest of all the places we stayed). The rooms were darling with hand painting and cute linens etc. The whole area was fenced discretely so you didn't need to have a guard take you around after dark. The wildlife (including the monkey that stole some bread from a guests plate) was right there on display 50 feet away!. Water features were lovely. Service was great. Matilda from the front desk dealt with all sorts of printing issues for us. Cute gift shop with lots of unique hand crafted items. Good food options - buffet with us using plastic gloves for covid cleanliness. We had a lovely sundowner for our last night as well. Highly recommend!

Charming rooms, very kind staff, extraordinary food with so many dishes and a very expensive gift shop. And the wild animals just outside the hotel. From the porch I could see giraffe, zebras, marabou storks, gazelles and a few elephants . During two days I saw over 100 elephants, three lions with five cubs, two cheetahs, lots of gnu, zebras, springbucks and antilopes. Highly recommendable

Quaint and clean! Excellent, friendly staff. Great food service at the lodge. Kick back and watch the animals come to the water hole. An excellent experience and did I mention the great staff? Thank you for making my stay memorable.

We have stayed in Serena hotels earlier and this lodge was equally good and met all our expectations. Rustic Safari lodge, good service, excellent location, beautiful views. The food was good and diverse, specially breakfast and dinner, The outside area with fire pit, leather sofas and hot coffee was a dream. The landscaping and décor fits the safari theme perfectly. The only small consideration was that the lodge is particularly popular with big groups and families with small children which makes it a bit noisy in the dining area.
