Located at an elevation of 7200 feet, Serena Mountain Lodge is surrounded by a dense rainforest that comes alive at dusk with a myriad of sounds that make the African bush so special and exhilarating. Considered the most spectacular forest waterhole in the Aberdare Ranges, the lodge’s waterhole presents a constant ballet of wildlife. Lights are kept on all night so the attracted animals can be easily viewed.
Mountain Lodge can be reached by a good road passing through coffee, sisal and pineapple plantation. The lodge has 42 attractive, tastefully decorated, recently refurbished bedrooms furnished with indigenous wood and African art, each with private bathroom. A spacious balcony also overlooks the waterhole where there is a continual procession of big game. A specially constructed viewing bunker is connected to the lodge by a short tunnel and allows an incredibly close view of game as they come to drink or partake of the salty silt.
The professional, attentive and friendly staff serves guests sumptuous international menus, buffets and barbecues alongside authentic African dishes. The full service bar serves fresh fruit juices, soft drinks, tea and coffee, cocktails, wines, spirits and liqueurs.
Bird watching is especially popular at Mountain Lodge. A naturalist conducts daily safari walks through the forest nearby. The drama of nature plays out daily, beneath the rocky, glacier-covered peaks of nearby Mount Kenya.
