Wonderful true safari experience. But the ranger Charyl, and his girlfriend who run the place are the main feature. They are both wonderful people and made it the great experience it was. Lovely facilities, great food, and very personable and helpful people. We saw everything and then more. Wonderful experience. The only drawback is no opportunity for exercise, a situation... More

We just left the Sarondella Lodge after 4 nights with my daughter. Small lodge with just the 4 rooms/cabins, which provides an excellent, very personal atmosphere. Mich and Schole are excellent hosts, and definitely what makes this lodge as good as it is! The weather was great. Not too hot, and just a one morning in light rain showers. And,... More

We stayed at Serondella Lodge for 5 days and had a wonderful time. The staff could not do enough for us, and went out of their way to make the experience as pleasant and memorable as they could. Charl, Mich and the rest of the staff are great, the food was lovely and the game drives amazing. Can not recommend... More

What an amazing few days we had with our Scottish family. Although it was a bit wet Charl and Mish and the staff are more than "5" star and cant do enough for you. The accomodation is the best we have stayed in of all the lodges and the food was delicious. Definitely a hidden jewel and should not be... More

There is a reason why this place is rated the best lodge in the Reserve. Serene, intimate, full of fun game drives. The staff is excellent. Mich has the most beautiful soul and cares about the guests individual experience and needs. They did something special for my husband's birthday since it was during our stay. My husband and I, had... More

We visited Serondella Lodge as part of our honeymoon and stayed with Monica (host) and Chewie (guide) for three days. We have never been on safari before, but can't imagine how our experience could possibly be improved. Our tracker was excellent and we saw more wildlife than we could have hoped for, including The Big 5, a varied selection of... More

Our stay here was the best experience, friendly staff, great rooms, TOO much food, and best of all the safari excursions. Our tracker and guide were just awesome. Seen everything possible. RECOMMEND .

Serondella Game Lodge offers peace and quiet in the middle of wild nature. Vervet monkeys knock at your door, and antilopes graze in your yard. The expertise of the ranger was astounding. Unbelievable knowledge of birds on top of his experience of bigger animals.The quiet kindness of the hostess was heartwarming - not to talk about her cooking. A place... More

After a meeting in Cape Town five couples from Europe, North America and one from Cape Town came together for a once in a lifetime experience at Serondella. The total experience could not have been better. First one comes to see the animals, and see them we did. We sat in the bush in our land rover surrounded by a... More

Although we live on the other side of the world and visited here a couple of years ago as a once in a lifetime trip we couldnt help but come back with more family!
