Right from the gate you get a sense of warm hospitality. The staff sought to ensure our stay was pleasant. The food was excellent with a wide ray of Indian, Italian and even traditional African food (mukimo). The tent wasn't what I expected... It was actually comfortable and warm! You wouldn't want to miss out on the chimp sanctuary as...

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 that there are no safes in the room (which didn't pose to be a problem...

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 👍🏼👍🏼.

Sweetwaters Serena Camp is an amazing experience. Everything at the camp is top notch and nothing will leave you disappointed. I was there with a group of 7 others from the US. The rooms are a bit tight however the attention to details in the tents is perfect. The food at the camp is also incredible and each meal will...

We were here only for one night in May 2015 but what an experience. The tented camp experience is out of this world. We saw all the big 5 in the conservancy. At night after dinner we found ourselves less than five feet away from an elephant. Scary but fun. The waterhole there attracts all the animals and you can...

We were 8 of us so booked three tents, two with three beds and one with a king size. We loved the tents which have all your amenities, hot water, blow dryers etc. but really why would you want to be in your tent when sitting outside you get to watch the animals walk by. The restaurant was very good...

We stayed here for a couple of nights during our 7 day visit to Kenya. We were lucky enough to stay in tents 6 and 7 which are extremely close to the watering hole. We saw white rhino, antelope, deer, giraffes, zebras, an elephant, and buffalo. It was quite mind blowing to see these animals so close up, they were...

We stayed here with our two young children, and really enjoyed all the amenities (including the small pool!) as well as the abundant wildlife. Meals were very well catered, we liked that we were able to check out and come back for lunch on day of departure. Tents were luxurious and well equipped, we particularly liked hopping into bed to...

We stayed in one of the tents facing the watering hole with our two children. Upon arrival, we discovered the bed configuration was not as requested. This was fixed within minutes. The room itself was perfect, and well equipped with a gorgeous shower and luxury toiletries. As well as being a great location from which to enjoy the conservancy and...

Only stayed one night, but what a stay! Luxury tents with electric, showers, tea & coffee. Added touch of a hot water bottle in your bed at night! Looking out of our tent onto the waterhole, we saw many animals including impala, giraffe, elephant, wart hog, and waterbuck. Huge variety of birds too. The park itself is great, and we...
