This hotel is so well located. Spectacular views over the plains and hills while wildlife roam in the grounds so take the escort. Lovely staff. Great bar and restaurant and the Serengeti is one of the world's special places.

The location of the Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge is incredible, looking out over the Serengeti from atop a hill. The top room in each small cottage has the better of the views. The rooms were comfortable, though a ceiling fan over the bed would be useful, as the room was a bit stuffy and hot at night. Staff were uniformly...

Zebras and Giraffes are fairly common too. The dining and cafe tent is well appointed with all day unlimited tea /coffee/ milk beverages. There...

This was our first of three Serena hotels. The other two were the Serena Serengeti and the Serena Stone Town in Zanzibar. I have nothing but good things to say about all three. The rooms are very nice, the food is delicious (buffet breakfast and dinner), but the best quality in my opinion is the staff. They are extremely professional,...
