#4 of 51 Specialty lodging in Nanyuki Town
Travelers' Choice
A sheltered oasis, clustered around a waterhole and set in the pristine calm of its own private reserve, Sweetwaters Tented Camp is in a class of its own. Abounding with wildlife, unfettered by the more rigorous strictures of the Kenyan National Parks and designed to offer a charming blend of under canvas ambiance and uncompromising luxury.

The hotel is inside Ol Pejeta conservancy. There are plenty of wild animals in the area. Some of the tents are very FAR ....(almost in Tanzania) ha ha ha ha. Food is regular but not outstanding. At night i was bitten by some kind of insect in the bed.

The Serena Sweetwaters is located closeby Nanyuki town. The camp is very well taken care of and clean. In the front of the camp you have a waterhole where different kinds of animals are coming to drink water with a view of Mt.Kenya. A nice welcome, briefing and time to relax. The staff is nice, the buffet food good, its just that the dinning room is very loud when full. The rooms are spacious and equipped with amenities you might need for your stay. Otherwise they offer a wide range of activities, including the massages, laundry service or the night game drives etc. In case you might have some time there is a pool in the garden with with sunbeds. We have enjoyed our stay, thank you.

When to talk of the Kenyan safari hotels and lodges, Serena Sweetwaters camp is one of the best. From the moment one steps in the hotel, all the staffs handle you with appreciation. The receptionists, room services, restaurant staffs are great. The food menu is amazing. One enjoy abundance of wildlife that come at the waterhole in front of the restaurant and the rooms. Will highly recommend this place.
