We spent an amazing 3 days at Serondella recently (early Mar 2017) and I'm not sure that a 5-star review really even gives this resort enough credit. I'm also wishing that we had been able to spend more time there. Monica and Chewie provided an incredible, highly personal experience that is something we will never forget. It was particularly satisying...

We spent 3 days at Serondella and could have easily spent a week. Ron, Shelly, and Jeffrey were wonderful. This is a 5-star plus resort in every aspect. B,L,D were gourmet, not just good. This was a pre-trip extension as part of OAT. We saw the BIG 5 in the first 2 days, and much more. Ron answered every question,...

This breathing destination, in Serondella-has the MOST amazing host and hostess (Monica and Chewy) what a great couple! They treat the guest like kings and queen's - we were so blessed having them. On your day of arrival, guest are welcomed, with big smiles, welcome drinks and drums playing the background. Rooms are exquisite with attention to detail. Thank you...

Could not agree more with recent reviews. Top class on every level. Monica and Chewie are funny, informative, thoughtful, low key individuals who make you feel so at home. Food excellent, accommodation and location all perfect. To Chewie and Conraight thanks for making the game drives truly special and quite exciting but also giving enough time to enjoy the beautiful...

Love the place and the managers. A good Safari has everything to do with good trackers and rangers. And Serondella has them both. We saw the big 5 (so, including the Black Rino) and there was also continual attention for the small five! We'll go back

This was our second trip to Sarandella in three years and the standards remain high and the experience superb. First let me acknowledge the great ledership team at the lodge. Chewie, the ranger, lived and breathed this lifestyle. He ensured that we saw the best of the best, he was informative and funny. The tracker, Conright, was knowledgeable and communicative...

Serondella is fantastic!!!!! Food is very good! The game drives are very nice. I could see all the big five by the second game drive. The lodge is located inside the thornybush reserve so you are able to see many animals passing by your room. The room is big and very comfortable! But don't leave your door or your window...

I truly didn't know what to expect as this was the first time I'd been to a game lodge or gone on safari but I wasn't disappointed at all. In fact I couldn't fault anything and couldn't think of anything more I could possibly have wanted that I didn't get! From start to finish we were so well looked after,...

Dear readers , have been to various S.A.Lodge for the last 20 years but Serondella is probably one of the best. Chewle is a real leader , polite , great way to explain about Lions , Elephants , Birds , Trees , Termite and his speech is done with passions and knowledge.

We spent 11 days in South Africa in September, toured Cape Town, then 2 separate Safaris in Sabi Sands & Thornybush reserves. We stayed 3 nights at Serondella Lodge (Thornybush) and it was the highlight of the trip. There are only 4 suites so it was a nice intimate and casual atmosphere. Great service (Monica), great food (chef Godsave), great...
