This is a gorgeous eco hotel in the middle of the Serengeti - you look out your room to see the Serengeti and animals. The hotel has a pond elephants come to drink from just next to the pool and the dining room so you can eat and watch the elephants. The rooms are gorgeous, with every amenity. Take a... More

Dear Sandi0615, Thank you for taking the time to share some very useful observations and tips. You'll be happy to know that the elephants are still enjoying the water hole several times a day.

Everything about this hotel is spectacular. Food, rooms, views, service, spa, and the wildlife floor show right off your 150 sq ft terrace/balcony. The service was incredible. The staff teleported themselves to my room each time I called for service. The rooms were like gorgeous apartments: huge bedroom with dining table seating 4, living room area, spacious closet/room complete with... More

This lodge is, in my opinion, the epitome of luxuriousness in a safari. Its room are on par with any 5-star property in the world. The food was delicious, and there were many restaurants to choose from. Dining at the boma at least once is a must. The staff is all very friendly.

My husband and I stayed at the Four Seasons Serengeti for 3 nights in mid-December, just after 2 nights at &Beyond Under Canvas and just before 2 nights at the &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge. The Four Seasons ended up being quite close to Under Canvas, just a few minutes drive. The handoff from &Beyond to the Four Seasons took place... More

The lodge is surrounded by the game park and guests can drive out at any time of the day to see lions, giraffes, wildebeest, zebras, elephants, and hippopotamus.

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.

Getting there was an adventure in itself, but... More
