          Hello, Mountain Lodge is built at a high altitude along the slopes of Mt. Kenya. Because of the altitude, it is a lot cooler hence not conducive for Mosquitoes at all. There are no mosquitoes at MOuntain Lodge

          Hi, my husband and I are visiting the Serena Mountain lodge in June and I wondered about your comment of the 50USD charge per person, We are on an organised safari through Somak , Is this charge for all visitors or did you plan your own trip?
