We stayed at the Serena Safari Lodge in 2010 as part of a 6 day tour with Somak and found this lodge to be in a prime location with stunning views. The 'huts' are dotted around the grounds with lovely views. We woke to see wildlife wandering through the brush and enjoyed the open aspect of the lodge. Hyenas can be seen drinking from the pool in the evening which explains the need for security to walk you to the restaurant after the sun sets!
Our initial room had what we were told were bats living in the verandah wooden totem polls and once we showed this to the manager, David, he immediately arranged for us to move. And on top of this he made sure we enjoyed our stay by coming to speak with us each night and check the new room was acceptable - the complimentary beverage also helped! And when staying in the Serengeti visits from local wildlife should be expected. We had no concerns with mosquitos at this time of year. The room itself was clean and comfortable.
The pool looked great but we didn't get to enjoy it as we were out all day on safari. The lounge are was a perfect place to relax after a long game drive and the buffet meal was great - especially the meat bbq. We found the service to be fantastic.
