Beautifully designed accommodation gives way to endless views at this lovely Serena lodge.
With panoramic views across the Serengeti plains and a series of charming domed rondavels blending into the hillside landscape, this is one of Serena’s most picturesque lodges. Although there are 66 rooms here, the African-style rondavels are so well spaced out in the acacia groves that there’s an air of privacy, and there’s no mistaking that you’re right in the middle of the bush. With a location close to the western corridor and the Grumeti River, there’s great wildlife viewing year-round, but it’s particularly excellent from May to July when the migration passes through.
Meals are served in the traditional main dining room, reached by stone walkways and centred around a barbecue-style open kitchen, with its roof supported by huge carved figures. Breakfast and lunch are buffets while dinner is from a set menu, with as many ingredients as possible sourced from local communities. Rooms are set in the two-storey rondavels and have hand-carved furniture, natural stone bathrooms and local artwork. You’ll be housed either in a ground floor room with a terrace or an upper floor room with a balcony and wonderful views out over the plains.
