Dear Strathcool, It makes us happy to know that you were so pleased with your stay at our Lodge - thank you for sharing your impressions!

We enjoyed Christmas night in rooms overlooking the watering hole. Everything superb. From the initial greeting, superb rooms, appointments & luxury Italian amenities, complimentary laundry, delicious African cuisine buffet & breakfast with a juice bar & glass of champagne to start the day on the Serengeti.

In the middle of the Serengeti lies this jewel. Rooms have an awesome old world charm and are very beautifully laid out. There is a small water hole right across from the pool and animals congregate here especially in the dry season. I cannot but add superlative adjectives when I describe this place. It has an Africa-oriented library and movie... More

Having never been to Africa before I wasn't sure what to expect when going to the Serengeti National Park for a safari experience. I had heard about the tent lodges in the Park and was hoping for something a little nicer and more romantic. Luckily I discovered the Four Seasons Safari Lodge. Getting there was an adventure in itself, but... More

My husband and I stayed at the Four Seasons Serengeti in July of this year and it was an absolute dream-vacation come true. Like many people, we took advantage of our long travel from the States to visit other regions of Tanzania, including Zanzibar for the tropical, ocean-side experience, and post-Serengeti Kilimanjaro climb. Visiting the Serengeti and experiencing the Four... More

My husband and I have enjoyed various types of accommodation on our safari holidays, but a luxury resort in the heart of the Serengeti is as surreal and serene and extraordinary as it sounds.
