The only ‘tree hotel' ever to be built on the slopes of Kenya's legendary Mount Kenya, Serena Mountain Lodge offers game viewing opportunities while combining a glorious panorama of mountain vistas with the primordial splendors of an ancient rainforest.
Floating 2,195 m high on the flanks of Kenya's highest mountain and secreted deep within her largest forest reserve, the lodge offers the clarity of mountain air, the tranquility of the forest, a colorful cavalcade of wildlife, and the chance of scaling the icy peaks of Africa's second-highest mountain.
The lodge has 42 attractive bed-rooms furnished with indigenous wood and African art. Their spacious balconies overlook the water-hole where a continual procession of animals come to drink. Each room is equipped with Wi-Fi Internet access and has a private en-suite bathroom fitted with mineral water, toiletries, bathrobe, slippers and hairdryer.
The professional, attentive, and friendly staff serves guests sumptuous international menus with buffets and barbecues alongside authentic African dishes. The full-service bar serves fresh fruit juices, soft drinks, tea and coffee, cock-tails, wines, spirits and liqueurs.
Guests can awake to the trumpeting of elephant, fall asleep to the symphony of the African night or sit in stillness and observe the fascinating interplay of the animals as they arrive to drink, bathe, spar and forage around the water hole. Guests can venture down to the secret viewing hide by the water's edge and experience the awesome thrill of being only meters away from some of the most massive beasts on earth. Arrangements can be made for forest walks, game sightings, and even hikes for the daring and adventurous to the top of Mount Kenya.
