The property is very good for families looking for good value hotel style accommodation. Our only negative is that the property caters towards the upper-level packaged safari industry - something that we as a company try to improve on.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Serena's Serengeti Safari Lodge has a superb location in the heart of Serengeti National Park. It is part of the Serena hotel chain which gives reliable accommodation in a great area for game.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The lodge is attractively situated on a ridge with sweeping views of the Serengeti plains. It is designed like a traditional Masai village, with 66 circular rondeval "huts" made out of stone with thatched roofs. They are well-appointed with natural stone bathrooms and private decks outside where guests can sit and look out for game. An infinity pool overlooks the grasslands below.
This is a large lodge in a very busy area, so is not the place to choose if you want an authentic safari experience. However, it, like the other Serena hotels, is a reliably good option for clients with children who are looking for a "safer" safari. It is best booked as part of a Serena hotel circuit in order to get lower rates.
