About
Description
Serondella Game Lodge is perched on the banks of the dry Monwana River, in the depths of the Thornybush Private Nature Reserve. This 4-star luxury lodge offers guests individual attention with only 3 suites ...More and an exclusive-use 3 bedroom house, which is perfect for a family or group traveling together. Locally sourced and expertly prepared meals are served on the deck overlooking the waterhole or in the dining room of the lodge. Game drives with professional rangers and trackers, take guests out into the bush every morning and evening for sunset. There are no fences between the Thornybush Nature Reserve and Kruger National Park, so there is ample opportunity to see the Big 5 and a whole host of other animals, big and small. Less
