The location and public spaces are updated. However, the rooms are horrible, decrepit, loud and small. The curtains were ripped, the bed uncomfortable and we could hear every sound in the room next door. My son had to change rooms twice; toilet and shower heads were broken. Unlike the other hotels in the Park the employees were very subdued and... More

Nice place to relax after a day of safari. Beautiful boulders are everywhere as the hotel is built around them. Nice buffet dinner, nothing really special but good. Enjoyed a bottle of wine at the outside bar after dinner while hearing animal sounds in the night. The place is not fenced so on my walk to breakfast I saw a... More

This is a big property in Central Serengeti and we were here for 2 nights in May. We chose to go to the Serengeti before end May since it was low season and most properties offer a good discount before the onset of June. Pros : Clean rooms, bright light, nice linen, peaceful surrounding, good buffet, and live band during... More

I stayed at the Seronera Woldlife Lodge during a safari. I liked the wooden finish of the hotel and the fact that there were animals around. The rooms were nice and clean and they were a nice place to be. If you wake up in the night, you will likely hear some wildlife right outside your room. The hotel was... More

This lodge was wonderful. We were greeted with fresh passion juice, and escorted to our rooms by very friendly porters. From our rooms we could see giraffes and elephants just beyond the border of the lodge, and in the coming days we would see many animals from the various vantage points throughout the property. The food was absolutely phenomenal, and... More

Everyone was very kind to me. Every food item was good and the lamb, French toast and pancakes, excellent. (The box lunch could be so much better...try harder folks!) The rooms need some tender loving care - help. My tub facet didn't work, the towels really are indeed "shaggy and dull," but are not gross, and the floors were cracked... More

This lodge is situated overlooking the Serengeti. The lodge is stunning with absolutely stunning views. We were fortunate enough to be welcomed to the lodge gate with a herd of elephants whilst the sun was setting. We could then see the elephants from our room window. The rooms could do with being sound proofed and the hotel staff insisted on... More

We were a large group of about 40 people staying at the Seronera Wildlife Lodge. We stayed one night and the next morning we had to leave by 730am to continue our safari and see the animals before many of the nocturnal ones the slept for the day. Instead, the Lodge's manager would not let our party leave for over... More

I took 41 of my adult peers on holiday and stayed here because an agent suggested it and it was one of the only places that could accomodate us. Without flare, here are all the things that went so wrong I would rather have had us stay in our safari vehicles than the lodge (1) no internet as promised. In... More

Excellent position in the park and spectacular architecture (but nobody has informations about the lodge's story, only that it was built in the '70). At the end of march (low season) shop & internet point closed, only WI-FI 10$/hour (crazy). Sad kitchen, same taste for all food, they should change the cook. Quality/price ratio poor. Electricity not available during the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Seronera Wildlife Lodge is artfully constructed round a rocky outcrop from glass and wood elements, perfectly blending into its surrounding; next to the lodge, several waterholes attract day and night the most amazing animals, providing a unique opportunity for a close encounter with the so called Big Five. The Lodge is only 5 minutes far from the departing point of the hot - air balloon safaris, which offer a thrilling birds-eye wildlife perspective of the vast plains of the Serengeti. ... more   less
