My family and I stayed here for three nights and the time we spent will forever be engraved in our minds. Everything from the rooms, the food and the service is simply spectacular. The staff are super nice and hospitable. We loved that we could see many animals (zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, elephants, warthogs etc) come to drink water from the waterhole just a few meters away from our room and the dining area. The game drive was also quite nice with a very knowledgeable and professional guide. We'll definitely plan to come back. Thank you Dan and Simon for going out of your way to make us feel at home..

We stayed at the Kilaguni Serena Lodge in Tsavo. It's one of the older lodges but its well maintained and the food is exceptional. The animal water hole is well established so many animals come to drink. We saw elephants and the night prior to our visit they saw a cheetahs which are so rare.

Superb stay on our safari trip! The rooms are spotless and well equipped, the food is great and the location is breathtaking with view on a pond where wildlife regularly go!

The outdoor pool is also the perfect spot for an afternoon plunge before a game drive.

Would love to come back!

We are currently at the lodge now and the staff is slow at the dining area, they insist on serving us soup but drag their feet and bring it at intervals meaning not everyone at the table is having soup and bread at the same time also it gets cold before the bread also comes.
I had to call the reception 3 times to get cob webs inside the shower cubicle and behind the door where to hang towels after showering. There was a spider trapped in there and an insect.
We have just come for dinner and wanted to sit at a certain table they told us no it's booked by their guests staying with them! Sooo who exactly are we if we are not guests staying with them and paying for the exact same rooms at the exact same time? Terrible service and racial discrimination!
