I understand and accept that being at a prime location is worth something and so I granted this property a "2" rating. Aside for this, there was NOTHING good worth mentioning at the Seronara. Let me start by saying that there was NO Internet available at all, for a fee or not. This is simply unacceptable at this day and age. The rooms were at best average. The beds were at best adequate. The was either no hot water, no water pressure or usually - neither. The food was nothing special and was almost the same both days that I was there. The hotel setup is weird with the dining area literally on top of a hill so you need to be prepared to climb for you food. The pool is tiny. The bar area barely large enough to accommodate when there are many guests. The rooms are dormitory style in a two-floor railroad building. Here is a viewing platform outside the restaurant area and above the pool. the view is magnificent. The staff is not more than courteous. This was definitely the worst property I stayed at during my 5-day safari in Tanzania. Shame.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Seronera Wildlife Lodge is artfully constructed round a rocky outcrop from glass and wood elements, perfectly blending into its surrounding; next to the lodge, several waterholes attract day and night the most amazing animals, providing a unique opportunity for a close encounter with the so called Big Five. The Lodge is only 5 minutes far from the departing point of the hot - air balloon safaris, which offer a thrilling birds-eye wildlife perspective of the vast plains of the Serengeti. ... more less
