We went to Serondella for a 4 nights stay. We are a family of 6 adults and to kids (8 and 10 years old). For 2 of us this was our second safari experience. The others were exited and did not know what to expect. Serondella is a beautiful place with only 4 lodges. that makes your stay very private... More

We visited Serondella in late February 2015. This was my third safari experience. I had enjoyed my previous experiences so much that I manged to convince some of my family members to join me for another trip -- and I must say that Serondella lived up to and exceeded my expectation. Let me start off by saying that my previous... More

Serondella: beautiful small private lodge, beautiful staff, beautiful game drives. The food was delicious. Chewie and Monica (managers) are the perfect hosts. We can recommand this lodge to everybody. We were there for 3 nights but we wished we had booked a few more. We will be back. Ruud and Sabina, Amsterdam

I had read some of the last reviews before travelling to Serondella but whilst everyone raves about this place it is almost impossible to do it justice in a written summary. Our hosts were Nikki and Werner who both have an exceptional knowledge and love of their environment. Serondella is a small, intimate place which exudes calm and tranquility and... More

We visited Serondella in early February 2015 for a 4 night safari experience, our 4th safari but our first time at Serondella. Having safari'd in Kenya, Botswana and the Eastern Cape, this experience was simply the best. With Chewie as our driver, Conright as our spotter and Monica and her team back at the Lodge, the experience far exceeded our... More

I traveled with my elderly mom to Serondella and we had an utterly memorable experience. We stayed three nights, went on six game drives with Chewie and Conright and encountered so many animals up close - I had no idea we'd be so close to lions (and lion cubs!) and elephants, among other animals. We learned so much, from both... More

As part of our recent trip to South Africa, my partner and I visited Serondella lodge for our safari. Arriving to the beat of African drums and a cocktail, we were greeted by our hosts Chad and Kelly. We were then introduced to our spacious guest room, with the bathroom a real highlight - overlooking the nearby active waterhole. During... More

My fiance and I decided to do a safari "pre-honeymoon" when I was working in Africa for a bit. We struggled to figure out where to stay and ended up working with Dave at the African Safari (highly recommended). He got us a great deal at Serondella and we could not have been happier with our stay. Serondella is gorgeous!... More

This place makes me happy. The rooms are spacious, have everything you may need, and skip the unnecessary (no tv!). This place is tiny, only four rooms. You will get personal service. The staff are simply amazing. Everyone is welcoming and pleasant. They took our dietary requests before we arrived and had everything arranged as asked. Speaking of food, it's... More
