My sister and I spent 3 nights at Serondella. The lodge is beautiful with lovely views over a watering hole. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming, especially our hosts Mich and Charel and our tracker Sydney. The food was delicious, there was not one meal that we didn't enjoy. The game drives were amazing, and I was... More

We stayed for 3 nights and were so sad to leave to the next Safari Lodge that we had booked. Had we known how lovely Serondella was going to be, we would have stayed an extra couple of nights. This is a small lodge with only 4 or 5 guest rooms and a maximum of 9 guests so has a... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and did not want to leave! We had a room with a view of the watering hole. It was just incredible to be able to see elephants, rhinos, water-buffalo and all sorts of animals from our bathtub. So surreal! It was officially 4 stars but should have been 5 stars. The hostess...

The Serondella Game Lodge is one of THE best game lodges I have ever stayed in. It has officially 4 stars, but I would gladly give it 5 stars. The standard of the accommodation is second to none. The care of the hostess, Mich, is something I have never encountered in my life. Nothing was too much. You felt such... More

This was my second trip to Serondella Lodge and I was not disappointed. In fact, I had the best time ever! Mich and Charel are the most wonderful hosts you could imagine - in fact all the staff are extremely caring and fun to be around. The chef is super talented too - I miss those meals already! The game... More

My wife and I chose Serondella for a part of our honeymoon. Im a wildlife enthusiast and my wife got into it after our first trip into the bush. We first ran into Shales and Mish (the managers) in the lodge. Shales is by far the best driver in the park, he would literally move the tress with his Landover... More

The only way to give this the rating it deserves is to say that five star reviews of other places should be lowered. I have never had such excellent services, fantastic food, and a great experience on the safaris as I did at Serondella. The thoughtfulness, the attention, the information, and overall good-naturedness of Mich, Charl, and all the staff... More

Wow, what an amazing trip. We were lucky to have stayed 4 nights here and do 8 game drives! Every single drive holds a special place in my heart and memory. It started off with a mama leopard and cub as well as a male leopard eating an impala. Seriously this was in the first hour of our first game... More

The rooms are luxourious with lots of special touches! I really don't know why it is four star and not five. The food is wonderful Godsave the chef... More

My husband and I could not say enough about our experience at Serondella. Charl and Mich were amazing hosts. They did everything they could to make us feel at home. Charl went out of his way to show us the Big Five. Each and every safari trip was filled with excitement. We saw many animals up close. The food was... More
