Kenya

Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge

PLAN MY TRIP

Ideally located in the lee of Mount Kilimanjaro and sheltered by the Chyulu Hills, Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge is a classic stone-built safari lodge in Tsavo West National Park.

Comfortable accommodations at the lodge are offered either in the double-story block building overlooking the waterhole, in a collection of charming cottages, or in a house devoted entirely to luxury suites. Each lovely room enjoys natural volcanic stone walls, a choice of a king-sized bed or two twin beds draped in romantic mosquito-curtaining, and a writing desk. The en suite bathrooms feature a walk-in shower. Plus, every room and suite comes with its own private veranda with stunning views, either of the waterhole or of Kenya’s famous Chyulu Hills. The suites enjoy the added amenities of a separate sitting room with a terrace, a bath, and a dedicated room steward.

Kilaguni is one of the first safari lodges ever to be built in a park in Kenya. It is located within Tsavo West National Park which encompasses 5,632-miles of mountainous and swampy terrain, extinct volcanic cones, and rolling plains as well as Lake Jipe and the Mzima Springs. Tsavo is known for bird life and for its large mammal’s including the black rhino, Cape buffalo, elephant, leopard, hippo, and Masai lion. There are also other smaller animals that can be spotted in the park, such as the bush baby, hartebeest, lesser kudu, and Maasai giraffe. The rocky cliffs are a favorite spot for rock-climbing with the most impressive piece of rock being the 984-foot high east face of Kichwa Tembo.

Some of the complimentary activities at the lodge include taking in the brilliant Maasai dance and lectures, photography lessons, cooking lessons, Swahili lessons, bead making and basket weaving classes, an introduction to guitar, aerobics, and bike-riding. For an additional fee, guests can enjoy daily and nightly game drives conducted by an experienced guide in a comfortable 4WD vehicle through Tsavo. A guided nature walk or bird-watching walk takes a closer look at the area’s flora and fauna as well as observing smaller animals often missed from the vehicles. Bush breakfasts and sundowners are a great way to take in the scenery while enjoying a delicious meal or cocktail.

At the heart of the lodge is the thatched and partially open-air central dining room overlooks the busy waterhole and features a stone-built viewing terrace. The open-air, rock-built bar also enjoys spectacular views of the waterhole and has relaxing day beds. The lodge also has a library, lounge, and curio shop. A refreshing pool and sundeck provide a welcome respite from the heat of the day. A family-friendly property, babysitting services are available as well as family rooms.
