The world renowned Tsavo National Park covers nearly 22,000 km2, making this the largest National Park in Kenya. As Tsavo is so close to Mombasa (less than 100 km), it is an ideal destination for anyone wanting to combine the thrill of a safari with some relaxing beach time.
The red elephants of Tsavo are the ONLY red elephants in the world. Actually, they are really the same colour as every other elephant in the world, but they just appear red due to constantly dust-bathing with the Park’s fine red volcanic soil. Over 10,000 of them inhabit the Park, so the chances of seeing one are hopefully pretty high.
As well as lions and elephants, Tsavo is also home to the other members of Africa’s Big 5 – buffalo, leopard and rhino - as well as zebra, giraffe, antelope, spotted and striped hyena, baboons, a large population of hippo and many crocodiles. Over 500 species of bird have been recorded.
Kilaguni Serena is a classic stone-built lodge overlooking its own waterhole which is visited daily by elephants, buffalos and a wide variety of plains game.
The lodge is ideally built so that all rooms, the open air restaurant, timbered game-viewing decks and rock-built bar have uninterrupted views of the plains and snowy dome of Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance.
There are many activities to keep you busy including game drives in 4x4 safari vehicles and bush walks accompanied by the resident naturalist. Enjoy sundowners at Lion Rock, bush dinners, tribal dances, excursions to Mzima Springs to see the hippos and Nile crocodiles, visiting The Rhino Sancturary and climbing the Chaimu Crater.
Relax on the garden sundeck by the swimming pool or treat yourself to a luxurious body treatment or pick up some souvenirs at the extensively stocked Africana Gift Shop.
All the spacious 56 en-suite rooms and suites have their own verandas, some overlooking the waterhole, some the Chyulu Hills. The rooms are accommodated either in a double storey block overlooking the waterhole, or in a series of lovely cottages to the right and left of reception, or in a building dedicated entirely to the 5 luxury suites.
