Kenya

Serena Mountain Lodge

PLAN MY TRIP

Nestled amid the primeval forests of high-peaked Mount Kenya, Serena Mountain Lodge offers comfortable lodgings as well as clear mountain air, picturesque views, and a retreat back to nature.

Accommodations consist of forty-two rooms with twenty double rooms, nineteen twin rooms, and three triple rooms available. Each cabin-style room has timber walls, hand-woven wall hangings, cozy furnishings and bedding, and a luxury en suite bathroom. Hot water bottles are provided at night for a toasty night’s sleep. A private balcony overlooks a busy waterfall and affords an ideal spot to unwind with a morning coffee or a good book. Other amenities include free Wi-Fi, bathrobes, safe, and hair dryers.

The lodge is located 7,000-feet above sea level, on the lower slopes of Mount Kenya. Mount Kenya at 17,057 feet is Kenya’s highest mountain and the second highest mountain in Africa. The mountain which straddles the equator is also a national icon, a climbers’ paradise, the nation’s namesake, a UNESCO Natural World Heritage site, and a wildlife haven. Mount Kenya National Park is also the world’s highest national park as well as an extinct three million years old volcano. Wildlife living here include the giant forest hog, tree hyrax, white-tailed mongoose, elephant, black rhino, suni, black-fronted duiker, leopard, mouse shrew, hyrax, duiker, and the endemic mole-rat.

With such beautiful and game-rich forests at hand, guests can partake in a guided forest walk for an intimate look at the local vegetation and wildlife. The forests are also home to one of Kenya’s rarest creatures, the elusive and endangered bongo, a massive forest antelope with a rich red-brown coat banded with white stripes. Other guided walks take in the beauties and creatures of the expansive highland moors. Anglers will enjoy trying their hand at trout fishing in the mountain streams. For the more adventurous, any guest in reasonable health can attempt the steep trek to Point Lenana at 16,354-feet which is the highest point for trekkers. A tunnel leads to a hide where guests can sit, unobtrusively observe, and photograph animals from just a few feet away. To give back to the community, there is also a unique opportunity to plant a tree.

The main building gives the impression of a large wooden ship as it sits raised on stilts above the forest canopy. A timbered drawbridge leads from the forest to the hotel’s wooden decks which overlooks the waterhole. The central dining room is raised to tree level and serves up a delicious buffet of dishes. The lodge also has a bar, lounge, curio shop, spa, and library.
