Sagana Lodge was a royal residence in Kiganjo, in the foothills of Mount Kenya, Kenya. It was a leased wedding present in 1947 to the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh (later HRH The Duke of Edinburgh Queen Elizabeth II respectively) from the colony whilst they were in Kenya. It was built 1949-1950. In 1952 Queen Elizabeth II was staying at the Treetops Hotel in Kenya when she was told of her father King George VIs death and of her own succession to the throne - a unique circumstance for any such event. She was the first British monarch since the accession of William IV to be outside the oldest realm at the moment of succession, and also the first in modern times not to know the exact time of her accession (because her father had died in his sleep at an unknown time).
