Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge is bound by volcanic momentum, with a full a distant view of Kilimanjaro , with a busy water hole at its side acting as a meeting place for throngs of wildlife and plains game. There are 51 standard rooms and 5 suites, each positioned with a glaring view of the world-renowned Kilimanjaro. Even the dining and lounging areas are poised in this direction, with the surrounding grasslands also providing views of roaming species. Here, you may be seated with a number of cocktails or wines while savoring the multiethnic cuisine whipped up daily, when an elephant may pass by in your midst. The lodge helps organize daily activities which put you in touch with these animals, from bush walks to bird watching and night drives. The pool is a welcome relief in this dry savannah.
The first lodge ever to be built in a Kenyan National Park, Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge is superbly situated in the lee of Mount Kilimanjaro, encircled by volcanic splendour, adjacent to a teeming water hole and daily visited by vast herds of elephant, buffalo and plains game. Inspirationally positioned so that not only all the rooms but also the open-air restaurant, timbered game-viewing decks and rock-built bar enjoy uninterrupted views of the legendary snows of Kilimanjaro, the lodge also stands central to miles of lion-stalked grasslands, elephant-studded plains and wildlife-teeming bush and is ideally placed for visits to all the park’s prime attractions. Faced in volcanic stone and utilising the natural rocky outcrops of a valley known as ‘the place of the young rhino’, from which it takes its name, the lodge has been designed to blend chameleon-like into the savannah landscape.
Cool, tranquil and hushed for optimum game-viewing the open-air dining area, timbered decks and rock-hewn bar blend the traditional “khaki-and-canvas” look with bright-painted banners, sepia-hued paintings and evocative olive-wood carvings of elephant herds and tail-erect warthogs. The elegantly renovated rooms draw on a sun-gold, sky-blue and bush-green savannah colour palette and have been so styled to provide world-class luxury and a quintessential African aura whilst featuring private verandas with views of eternity. The lodge offers 51 standard rooms and 5 suites.
The traditionally thatched, breeze-cooled dining room overlooks the Lodge’s action-packed water-hole where lumbering herds of elephant, roving buffalo and playful zebra collect to drink whilst the guest menu features a sensitive blend of ethnic cuisine, internationally-themed dishes and traditional safari favourites.
The word “Safari” means “journey” in Kiswahili but since the days of the “Great White Hunters” a “Safari” has evolved to mean a spectacular bush adventure that takes in sightings of a glorious selection of game, flora, fauna and bird life whilst delivering awe inspiring scenery, show-stopping views and wildlife encounters of the most exciting kind. Enjoy activities such as: game drives, guided walks, bush breakfasts, volcano climbs and trips to Mzima Springs, a set of crystal-clear ponds, fed by the melt waters of Mount Kilimanjaro, in which the many hippos can be viewed from a submerged chamber.
