Dazzle of zebras in a field near Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge


One of the most magically memorable of the Serengeti experiences, a balloon safari allows you to drift in silence above the splendour of the plains, to dip down to visit the hippo pools of the Grumeti River, and to enjoy a bird's eye view of the wildlife theatre as it is enacted below you.

Outstanding quality

Serengeti’s Serena Safari Lodge is an outstanding retreat, more than only a hotel! Managing director John is not only the head of a team that has „ hospitality“ taken into its heart. John and his team „take care of you like a baby“. The quality of the accommodation, the African character, the quality of the meals and drinks is hard to find anywhere else. The chef in the kitchen made sure that dietary wishes were fully fulfilled. What strives most is the focus of the staff: the guest is the king. Whilst enjoying a sun-downer in or at the pool you watch from top of the hill the scenery of the Serengeti. You better stay 4-5 days, we only had 3 nights

Beautiful hotel in the Serengeti

Beautiful rustic lodge featuring rondavel-style houses, and our room was spacious with a balcony overlooking the trees / grassland. Note that there are upper and lower level rooms in each house. This is at a great location in the Serengeti – highlights on our game drives included a hippo pool, lush forests that elephant families traversed and grasslands where we saw all three types of big cats. The staff was friendly and always happy to help, which was appreciated since we had complicated trip logistics. My family and I had an excellent stay overall.

Classy hotel in the center of Serengeti

Great hotel in a central location in the Serengeti. The rooms are very clean, comfortable, and well maintained. The lodge itself is classy, with all the expected elements: great buffet meals, Maasai dancers, pool, grounds. Special thanks to Esther and Baraka. The only downside was a very pushy employee who was trying to carry our entire groups luggage, and who took too long, and was only doing it for tip. Everything else was great.

Great luxury at the heart of the National Park

Living there it is a pleasant experience. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, excellent meals (including natural juices). People are so king, excellent services! We have spent there the New Year Eve...and it was quite a party!

Perfect service in a very cosy & inviting atmosphere

The lodge is very unique in that animals are able to freely roam about...but not to worry, security is always at hand 24/7 should you come across any on your journey from the room to the reception. In particular the main chef, took great care to ensure all our meals were to our satisfaction. The staff were very warm, welcoming and engaging and Esther in the restaurant was very lovely, making sure we were enjoying our food throughout our stay.
