New lodge for Ndere Island in Kenya


Following the report of last week that Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) was preparing to spend big bucks in revamping some of the parks and reserves in western Kenya, which included the Ndere Island, news has emerged that Serena Hotels is set to commence construction of a lodge on the island, further widening their reach as one of the leading hotel, resort, and safari lodge companies in Eastern Africa.

Across the lake, Serena has taken on the management of a lakeside resort between Kampala and Entebbe, and the new development is increasing focus on the many opportunities Lake Victoria offers for tourism purposes that have not hardly been sensibly exploited.

KWS meanwhile has given indication that they intend to relocate game onto the island to increase its attraction for visitors who, when coming to East Africa, can now see new parks and reserves that are little known to anyone else except experts on the ground.
