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 world-renowned Tsavo National Park - an area covering 20,720 square kilometres that boast a huge population of elephants.
Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge is one of the more popular lodges due to its safari experience versus price comparison.
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. They have been so styled to provide world-class luxury and a quintessential African aura whilst featuring private verandas with views of eternity.
The traditionally thatched, the 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, 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.
Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge is committed to ensuring that you can relax and let your children have a wonderful holiday in Kenya. They offer a range of family-friendly accommodation, children's meals, child care and activities for children of all ages, sports and educational entertainment.
