What can I add to the reviews already giving Serondella FIVE STARS? This lodge fitted my dreams exactly - exceptionally comfortable rooms in romantic style with a viewing deck that meant I couldn't take a nap for fear I would miss some animals coming in to drink at the waterhole - the shy giraffe, warty wart hogs, in-your-face elephants, dainty...

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Serondella. There is no detail overlooked from the second you arrive until the second you leave. Every member of the staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. The rooms and grounds were beautiful and the food was consistently delicious, fresh and homemade. Every game drive with Werner & Sydney was new and exciting. They... More

We spent three nights at Serondella Lodge at the end of our South Africa holiday. This was our first safari. This is our first TripAdvisor review. Just in the 45 minute drive from the entrance of the reserve to the lodge, Conright (Tracker) surprised us by showing just how close we were going to get to big game. We arrived... More

My boyfriend and I joined my parents and my aunt and uncle at Serondella for 4 nights in August 2015. Serondella well exceeded our already sky-high expectations of an South African game lodge. Werner, our guide, and Sydney, our tracker, were fantastic - getting us up close and personal to the amazing wildlife while showing a true care, respect and... More

We stayed at Serondella in May 2014, for 5 nights, for the first part of our Honeymoon. I only have one word to describe our stay... Amazing!! From the warm welcome we received with African drums, drinks and hot towels to when it was sadly time to leave we were extremely well looked after. Mich and Charel were the absolute... More

We arrived in Serondella after spending a few days in the Kruger Park. From the moment you arrive and are greeted with the warm face clothes and iced tea we knew this would be an unforgettable experience. There are no words to express our amazing 4 day stay. Sydney our tracker picked us up and drove us to Serondella. The... More

Had an amazing time at Serondella...not only was the tracking phenomenal (thanks Sydney and Werner), but the food and social atmosphere matched (Nikki gets credit for this). The whole place has a laid-back, relaxed, gentle feel to it, with great service, incredible safaris, and great accommodations! Not only did we see the Big 5, we got up close and personal... More

From arriving to the welcoming sound of the drums until leaving, this was a magical experience. There are only 5 lodges but it is the intimacy of the place that is so magical. Monica and Chewie are fantastic hosts, making us welcome from the moment we arrived. The view of the waterhole from our lodge was great as so many... More

What an amazing place to visit, this is probably the smallest Lodge on the Thorneybush Game Reserve but deserve being rated No. 1. Chewie and Monica were fantastic hosts, it was like being invited into their home. The food was fabulous, and we could have taken the chef back with us. All the staff were friendly and helpful and Conright... More

Serondella Game Lodge is a charming intimate space in the Thornybush Game Reserve. There are only five villas and we were the only guests on property for two days of our stay so the service was very bespoke. The game drives were fantastic. They are done in an open top Land Cruiser with a tracker and very knowledgeable ranger. We... More
