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 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.
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 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.
Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge is committed to ensure 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.
