Take two wonderful hosts Kelly and Chad, put them together with Conright a brilliant tracker,December an amazing Chef and Trust a great barman and you get perfection. The Lodge is simply beautiful, the food delicious and being a small lodge we felt completely pampered. Our room was stunning overlooking a waterhole and it was incredible to watch the wildlife drinking... More

We travelled to Serondella as part of a 16day South Africa trip for 3 nights on 22 November. I had been on safari before but my partner had not so I wanted somewhere where I knew he would not forget. We were not disappointed in the slightest. Monica and Chewie do such a fantastic job ensuring the all guests are... More

If you enjoy being in the wildlife, but also like the confort of sleeping in a great bed, eating well and meeting nice people this place is ideal! The fact that there are few guests just makes the experience more customized and intimate as well as unforgetable! The safari itself is fantastic, the ranger is experienced and welcoming. We got...

If you have never been on a safari this should be the one you choose. I have been on over 200 safaris around the world. After visiting many countries in Africa this time we ended our tour here. We were able to see the big 5 in two days. The skill and closeness of the animals is unsurpassed. Chewie and... More

Serondella was our first African safari experience ever, and we had an incredible experience! We were there on our belated honeymoon in October 2014. Once we decided on the area near Kruger National Park for our safaris, my husband researched extensively about potential game reserves on Trip Advisor forums, and got in touch with the very knowledgeable Dave Patterson. Dave... More

We had a fantastic three night stay here, flying in from Johannesburg in a light plane to land on the Thornybush private airstrip. Sidney our tracker met us in an open topped toyota and we had the good fortune to find one of the Big 5 on the road to Serondella and had 15 minutes viewing before it wandered into... More

I highly recommend the Serondella Lodge. We stayed there for 3 nights and it was the highlight of our trip to Southern Africa. Chewy, our guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic and made our game drives even more wonderful than I imagined. The food was excellent and every meal was served beautifully. The lodge is small and we had excellent... More

Can't say enough about or experience at the Serondella Game Lodge. Our experience was excellent , a wonderful experience to be sure. Charles was our guide for the three days we were there and nothing was to much for him. We would place our order in the morning and he would make sure we saw what we ordered. We saw... More

We have been there for three days this May, and now I'm sorting the fotos. This place was the best on our safaris (and the others were splendid, too!): everything was great: the food, the rooms/huts and the view from the deck (one day a herd of buffalaos passed at the waterplace to take a bath). And everything was nice... More
