Located on a ridge overlooking Chyulu Hills and the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge offers an ideal base from which to explore the Kenyan wilderness. The lodge has been built from volcanic stone and blends in perfectly with its rugged landscape. Kilaguni Serena is ideal for families, and offers a child-friendly environment with kiddies’ activities, special menus and a baby-sitting service. Kilaguni is the first lodge to be built in a Kenyan National Park, placing it in a prime wildlife viewing position.

With a waterhole only 100m away, you'll be able to spot elephant, buffalo and many other plains game from the comfort of the restaurant and viewing deck. Enjoy a range of exciting excursions in the park, like game drives, guided walks, bird watching and volcanic climbs.

"Kilaguni is probably best known for the waterhole here - mostly you see quite a lot of game but not always! As with all Serena properties you can expect good service, friendly smiles and a good meal."
