We all know when you book that safari what we have in mind is seating in 4 x 4 car as a driver drives in the park looking for animals and you taking the pics. This trip on the weekend to Serena Mountain Lodge at Mount Kenya National Park was one that blew my mind away. So upon getting to the lodge the crisp air and dead silence was to die for. The lodge is a tree house that has been there for over 40 years and is still standing strong. As soon as our host let us know there no game drives allowed I thought bummer then why come all the way. I hadn’t been listening and had missed the part where he said you don’t look for the animals as they will come to you.. Nice huh!! it was literally thatEvery room has a view of the forest and waterhole. Ingrid and I sat down on our balcony and as we chatted away and had our vino..we both drifted to our happy places.
They have a waterhole that attracts different animals in the day and night. As soon as we woke up all foggy but the animals started streaming inThe night before we arrived a leopard had been spotted. For our herds of elephants, buffaloes and cute monkeys came to be seen 🙂
On the way back to Nairobi after our getaway we stopped at The Trout Tree Restaurant, I can confidently say they have the best smoked trout in Nairobi. I had tandoori trout.. it was super delish and the Columbus monkeys hanging out there on the tree house style restaurant made a great stop
