    Beautiful camp! It very conveniently dug a watering hole directly in front of the standard tents and main building. It was heavily visited - especially by one particular rhino who returned each afternoon. The tents were clean and well stocked - my only complaint is...More

    Have visited a few times with family and friends. Was very impressed with new rooms, excellent service, staff are very polite. Food was generally good but could be improved. Night safari is a must 👍🏼👍🏼.

    Hi Everyone We have booked to stay at the Serena camp in July. I have a few questions... - Most reviews recommend hiring a car and doing game drives yourself. Any car rental companies you can recommend? To pick up from Nairobi Airport and drop off same. - The $95 Conservancy Fee - this has us very confused... do we have to pay that regardless of taking game drives? ie. say we want to stay at the camp one day...not partake in any game drives... do we still have to pay this fee? Any other little helpful tips will be much appreciated. Thanks Cindi
