Located on a ridge that commands magnificent sweeping views of the Chyulu Hills at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, Kilaguni was the first safari lodge ever to be built in a national park and has long been a favourite of international tourists. It was opened in 1962 and has been under Serena management since December 1999.

Taking its name from a Kamba word meaning 'young rhino', this Tsavo Safari Lodge is located in the middle of the worldrenowned Tsavo National Park - an area covering 20,720 square kilometres that boasts a huge population of elephants.

Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge is one of the more popluar lodges in the area due to its safari experience vs. price comparison.

Rooms & Suites:

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.

Food & Wine:

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.


At the end of an action-packed day, guests can also enjoy a dip in the cool, blue waters of a rock-paved swimming pool, set amongst the lush foliage of an extensively planted tropical garden.


Activities include game drives; excursions to Mzima Springs, with its crystal clear water welling up from volcanic rocks and its hippos and crocodiles; The Rhino Sanctuary; Chaimu Lava Floor; Sheitani Lava; and Roaring Rocks, a volcanic hill formation with caves and rocks.
