On arrival, you KNOW you are somewhere absolutely wonderful...the lobby leads to the bar-restaurant area, with its open balcony to the nearby watering hole and a host of beautiful animals and birds of all sizes and colors.

Although I didn't stay the night (as we camped for the night), we dined here back in 2007. Breathtaking is the best way to describe we waited for a buffet.

We had a lovely lunch at the lodge before heading to our accommodate in Lake Jipa, but ended up getting stuck overnight in the bush and sleeping in our car. The next morning we were able to dig the car out, but were completely covered in mud. Even though we didn't even have a reservation with Serena, when we arrived... More

The lodge is nicely decorated, with great views of the watering holes that are situated right in front of the restaurant and terrace.
