We have recently stayed here for two nights as part of our safari tour. The hotel was really nice and like all the lodges it was unique the architecture was really interesting. The staff were helpful all was clean and the food was very good. When we went to pay no credit cards would work for anyone in our group... More

This was our 3rd time visit at this lodge over the last 14 years of our visit to Tanzania. Remember that the lodges in this wilderness are as natural as can be possible and that you are not going to spend a lot of time in your rooms, as you are here to see the wildlife out there in the... More

You will know that you have arrived in the bush when the staff tells you to call the desk for an escort to the lodge after dark; wild animals roam freely through the property. We even heard a lion yowling for over an hour one night - an eerie. wild sound. Don't miss drinks on the extensive verandas at sunset.... More

we spent 1 night here on our safari. Got up early for the balloon ride the next am. When we came back around 1pm from the ride and a game drive for lunch, they let me reuse my room (for the bathroom) which was very nice of them. The food was very good. Highly recommend.

Sorry to repeat what's already been said about the location BUT the views from our balcony was fantastic and the lodge has a beautiful aesthetic look about it that adds to the magic of the Serengeti. Being escorted to and from the restaurant just adds to the wonder of being in such an incredible place. The room was spacious and... More

This place has unique accommodation with views over the plains. It is a terrific oasis to come back to after a long day safari. It is very quiet and the staff very obliging. Couldn't fault it really other than the wifi is a bit slow but then again you are in the middle of nowhere in the magnificent Serengeti. Who... More

Views and service are exceptional. After dark you must have an escort. Wi-Fi is free and buffet meals are loaded with good food. Lots of animals to be seen. Some very close to the lodge. Watch your step though!

Beautifully located on little higher elevation than the surrounding plains, Serengeti serena safari lodge offers comfort & much needed relaxed atmosphere after exciting safaris. We got family room with big king size bed and 1 single bed.Room was large enough with good moving space. Since we visited during the dry season, it was quite hot. At night we found it... More

Nice location in the midst of the Game Park. The food service in the restaurant was great with a extensive selection. Rooms are a little small but the service is excellent. Have to be careful when it get's dark as the property is not fenced and you need to be accompanied to dinner from your room when it get's dark.... More

I stayed at this lodge as part of a safari organized by escape worldwide. I found the staff to be very helpful, the buffet style meals were more than plentiful and the accommodation was more than adequate. The wildlife does get up close to the lodge and means an escort is required when moving around after dark. Would I go... More
