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.
