Overview of Sweetwaters Serena Camp

Located on the plains below Mount Kenya, in the centre of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Sweetwaters Serena Camp is a sheltered, luxury safari camp that will provide you with a true taste of Africa’s wildlife. Ideal for those who want to see as many wild animals as possible, the camp is built around a watering hole where animals regularly come to drink and graze. The reserve still boasts many conservation efforts, with the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, as well as the only chimpanzee sanctuary in Kenya.

And with the conservancy’s wildlife-to-area ratio being the highest of any Kenyan national park, you are guaranteed an unforgettable safari experience. Your days will be spent going on early morning, afternoon or evening game drives to search for the members of the Big 5 as well as an abundance of other African wildlife. You can also indulge in exciting camel treks, guided nature walks and bird-watching excursions.

    A lovely option for families especially! The watering holes in front of the tents and hot water bottle in the bed at night was the highlight. A visit to the nearby Chimp Sanctuary is recommended.

      Sweetwater: lovely resort, really good guide named Leonard. We saw an amazing array of wildlife in a very short period of time. Only stayed one night, could have stayed another one.
