Monica and Chewie run this wonderful place with help of skillful staff and my wife and I enjoyed every minute of our 3 night stay. Our room was overlooking a water hole where we could see animals come and go all day. Chewie's knowledge and passion is obvious from your first drive and it is so wonderful to see people... More

Our family comprising grandparents, children, and grandchildren (a group of seven) occupied all three units of Serondella Game Lodge for several days two years ago. It was amazing--really the vacation of a lifetime! The accommodations were perfect in every way, and we were in a luxurious setting that was at the same time very much as natural as the the... More

We loved everything about this place. The staff was friendly and helpful, the ranger and tracker were extremely knowledgable. We saw all of the big five including a black rhino and lion cubs. The service and food were outstanding and, since it's built next to a water hole, you can spend the entire day just watching various species come to... More

Serondella was by far the highlight of our south african holiday. We found Serondella Game lodge to be an unforgettable experience, not only for the awesome big 5 game viewing but the staff, accommodation and entire experience (we didn't want to leave). Chewie (Ranger) and Conright (Tracker) made sure we ticked off the big 5 with some unforgettable animal sightings... More

Having just returned from 3 weeks in South Africa I can say without doubt that our 3 nights spent at Serondella Lodge was the highlight by far. We were fortunate during our stay that it was just my father and myself staying at the lodge which added a nice private feel to our experience along with the game drives allowing... More

Serondella was by far voted the best experience for our group on our iconic African dream trip in mid-March. We not only lived in nature, but with nature and looked forward daily to every game-drive (and meal), which was educational and awe-inspiring both for children and adults. We saw the Big 5 and much more than we could have hoped... More
