Serengeti Serena - 4 Stars

Serengeti Serena - 4 Stars

Set high on the saddle of a tree-clad ridge with commanding panoramic views across the Serengeti, this lodge is the ultimate fusion of traditional African architecture and world-class style. Winner of numerous awards from the world travel press, it is perhaps the finest venue the Serengeti has to offer.
 
At the end of a winding road into the Kyabatero Hills, northeast of Seronera, the Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge enjoys panoramic vistas from its Maasai-inspired, two-story thatched rondavel buildings. Its shaded walkways, large swimming pool, and artificial papyrus-filled streams are all pleasant, but with 66 en suite rooms, this is a busy hotel; guaranteeing a booking here is difficult.
 
Accommodations
Each charmingly presented room is accommodated in a two-story stone-built, traditionally thatched rondavel. Looking out over the plains, each has its own private balcony, private entrance, spacious bedroom, natural stone bathroom and intricately carved furniture.
 
Room facilities include:
  • Telephone and Wi-Fi
  • Laundry, valet and shoeshine services
  • Mineral water and toiletries
  • Bathrobe and slippers
  • Safes and hairdryers
Dining
The table d'hôte dinner menus feature a salad buffet, soup, entrée, pudding, cheese, and biscuits and tea or coffee. Vegetarian options are always available. The majority of the meat and dairy products, as well as the fruits and vegetables are sourced from the communities that surround the reserve.
 
The wine list offers a broad selection of old and new world wines and local and imported beers and spirits. A wide range of soft drinks including an array of freshly-made local fruit juices is also offered.
