Set on a ridge overlooking the vast Serengeti plains, the Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge creates the perfect balance between African architecture and top-class comfort and style. Ideal for those interested in traditional architecture and design, this lodge is not only beautiful, but also ideally located to enjoy fascinating game drives in the bush.

You'll have the chance to spot all the members of the Big 5 as you go on daily game drives and, if you visit at the right time of year, you might also witness the Great Migration - when thousands upon thousands of wildebeest and zebra trek across the plains to find greener pastures. The camp is adjacent to the renowned Western Corridor and Grumeti River, offering a truly magnificent landscape to call your home. Another memorable way to experience this wilderness is on a hot-air balloon safari, which ends with a champagne breakfast in the bush.

Rooms are spacious and comfortable and feature an en suite bathroom decorated in natural colours and feature stone designs.

Traveller Reviews

  • Large & busy, but there were benefits to the scale. Again, we had been put in family accommodation, but this time we asked to be moved as the family accommodation. The hotel manager did this quickly & without any fuss. The best packed lunch.

  • Moving on to Serengeti Serena, the hotel was a repeat of Manyara Serena and I am really impressed in general by the Serena chain.

  • Our highlight of the 2 counties visited was Tanzania, where we found the people very welcoming and the scenery hard to match. We had an excellent travel guide who provided both insight into all aspects of Tanzania from it's people, culture, animal and plant life. We felt very secure in his ability to move us safely from one area to the next. Accommodations where better than expected. We especially enjoyed the Serengeti.
