The Serengeti is truly amazing and this lodge is beautifully situated in the national park. The number and variety of animals that live in this vast area is awe inspiring. This was one of three Serena Lodges we stayed in whilst on a safari holiday and all were in lovely grounds with helpful staff and great bedrooms (super showers, much... More

Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge is situated on a hill, deep in the heart of Central Serengeti. Designed in a rugged, rustic carved wood and stone style, it follows the age old African theme of thatched circular huts set out as a village. Local materials are used throughout, and all 66 bedrooms have stunning views of the Serengeti wilderness. The lodge... More

What a great hotel. Loved the rooms, food and staff. We arrived late and were met with refreshing towels and a lovely cold drink. After a very quick booking in we were shown to our rooms. We both had upstairs rooms with fantastic views. Because of the lodges being in the safari park we had to have guides to take... More

Excellent accomadation, accompanied walk for meals etc when dark as animals freely roam through the hotel. Pretty gardens ,bull frogs croak in the pond at night. Good food, self service. Attentive staff.

We stayed there for 2 nights on our visit at Serengeti Park.This is the only place which disappointed us in Tanzania. Rooms were very small and opposite from charming. Mosquito nets were worthless since they were hanged liked curtains therefore bugs had many spaces where they could snick in. I brought my own nets and this was the only hotel... More

The hotel of course is clean and beautiful as you can tell from everyone's photos. But the staff here was so wonderful and friendly - they were our family by the time we left. I had an unfortunate fall (my fault) while there and multiple people came to my aid and later came by the room to see if I... More

Viewing photos prior to going we were super excited about this lodge and it really didn't disappoint. It was beautiful, amazing staff, great nightly entertainment, amazing food. We had zebras drinking out of the pool with people in the pool!! Every night we would go to dinner early to have a drink and look out and see these zebras roaming... More

I stayed at the hotel with my wife and kids. We intended Serengeti to be a holiday of a lifetime. Serena did not disappoint! The hotel is proffesionally run. The crew were eager to help, always with a genuine smile. The safari lunch boxes were first class. A fun fact is the acoustic effects of the dinning room... but I... More

I say unfortunate as the location is good and could be great. Rooms are very small and very dated as is the tiny cramped bathroom. No screens on the sliding doors means a hot airless night even when cool. There is an ageing desk top fan, circa 1971, which further reduces the ability to sleep because of the noise. Upper... More
