We (a party of 5) stayed at Seronera in early May 2013 (ignore the travel date box below) for 2 nights. In no particular order, here are my thoughts: First impressions: what's a hotel of this size and style doing in the Serengeti??? I was expecting something much lower key so this was impressive. Its location on the crest of... More

Built around an enormous rock in the heart of the Serengeti, Seronera Wildlife Lodge is the ideal place to follow the migration of the wildebeest. With the Seronera River flowing nearby, this is the perfect starting point for safaris setting out to discover lions, cheetahs, leopards preying on the antelopes in the Seronera Valley. Some 145 km from Ngorongoro and... More

Keep at least 3 full days aside for Serengeti. Serengeti is where your search for that perfect safari ends. So stop researching options and get yourself down here. The Seronera Lodge is right in the middle of the park and your safari starts right away !. THIS IS THE SINGLE BIGGEST ADVANTAGE OF THE LODGE. Taste the local beer. Tip... More

Nice place to stay when you are in Serengeti National Park. The food and room was very good considering you are in the middle of a great wilderness. The hotell is nicely build in and around a rock formation.

Stayed here two nights. Bar and restaurant are nice with soaring ceilings, pool nestled in the boulders of the Kopje and viewing deck has nice views out over the plains and the hippo pool. Rooms have noisy, creaky floors, luke-warm showers. Food is buffet and nothing special. To have our driver-guide eat with us it was $45 and definitely not... More

We stayed for two nights during our safari in Serengeti. The food could have been alot better. We got sick after the first dinner. Our guide told us it had to be because they never use fresh food. The location is absolutely beautiful, with a stunning viewpoint. The bar is cozy. The rooms are very good to be in the... More

We stayed at this hotel in December 2014 with two teens. We arrived to this place in our tour organized by Simon James King Safari which is definitely not recommended.

This was simply an incredible opportunity. While the accommodations are important, who goes on safari for the hotel? It was clean, the pool was beautiful, the food was very good served buffet style and the beer was cheap. What's not to like.
