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 AT SERENGETI SERENA LODGE:
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 rondavel "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.
ACTIVITIES AT SERENGETI SERENA LODGE:
- 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.
*This property is unfenced and located in a wildlife area, so large and potentially dangerous animals do pass through. If you opt to stay here, always be alert when walking around the camp and request for a member of staff to escort you if you have any concerns. Any guest is escorted after dark as a matter of course.
