Serena Sweetwaters Camp

Serena Sweetwaters offers tented luxury on a private reserve

Now you too can explore the beauty of Kenya if you choose Serena Sweetwaters Camp in Nanyuki, a rustic chic camp that offers tented luxury on a private game reserve perfectly located on the Laikipia plans 17 km from Nanyuki and some 220 km from Nairobi. 

Serena Sweetwaters Camp lies in the middle of the private 110,000-acre Ol Pejeta Conservancy in the stunning foothills of the Aberdares and the charismatic snowy white peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro. It’s an important habitat for endangered black and white rhinos, elephants, buffalo, lion, leopards as well as the rare Grevy’s zebra and Jackson’s hartebeest. Not only does the conservancy boast one of the densest wildlife populations in Kenya but so too does it harbour a sanctuary for chimpanzees and black rhino so is one of a kind. 

Guest love this conservancy and the many attractions at Serena Sweetwaters Camp where the grand total of 56 elegant canvas rooms comprise the standard wing and the more luxury Morani Wing for honeymoon guests, families, business and leisure adventures and groups of friends looking for fun and conservation education. All tented suites are thatched with solid wooden floors and private decks, delightful showers, free Wi-Fi, coffee and tea stations safari chairs and more. 

The best part is the views over the waterhole and guests can then get a drink at the Waterhole Bar, reminiscent of a game viewing hide where you can sit all day and simply watch birds and animals come and go. Jump into the cooling swimming pool to cool off after a unique camel trek through the Kenyan wilderness.
