Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was our second time to stay at Serengeti Safari Lodge and with each visit we are left yearning for more. The staff are very professional and accommodating with regards to our needs making our stay as perfect as possible. The food at Serengeti Safari Lodge was amazing. The lodge’s location is ideal and there are no fences so animals come right inside the lodge. On different days we saw an elephant herd, giraffes, wildebeest and zebras from our room deck. We were impressed once again by the hospitality of staff and well maintained facilities at this wonderful lodge.

Serengeti Safari Lodge is an amazing place, no effort has been spared to make the hotel an oasis in the middle of the jungle. The rooms have unhindered 360 view of Serengeti. We enjoyed majestic sunsets from our deck and wild animals came really close. The room was exquisite, a huge comfortable bed, shower, bath…. we had all the amenities we would have wished for. The main common area is huge, there is the dining area, spa, swimming pool, well stocked bar. We were impressed that staff were very clean to sanitize all the surfaces, wear masks and regularly wash their hands.
We had an amazing weeklong vacation at Serengeti Safari Lodge and its 10/10 for them

The lodge was part of the accommodations planned in our itinerary in Serengeti. My husband and I stayed spent 2 unforgettable nights here and we loved it best!
Staffs were very nice, they ensured that we were comfortable and did not lack anything after our long drive to Serengeti from Lake Manyara Park.
The lodge is fantastic with comfortable luxurious detached rooms. Beds- Perfect, Baths/shower- clean and indulgent, 360 degree views from inside and a deck opening to the vast grassland, we actually saw antelopes, birds and giraffes as we lounged on the deck.
On the second afternoon we enjoyed a lazy swim at the pool in the common area.
Food is delicious and plentiful as a wide variety is served.
I can go on and on about this lodge........ I guess you have to experience it!

We stayed three nights at Serengeti Safari Lodge in January 2022.
Our days were full of safari from morning to evening, in between we rested at this fantastic lodge. Wonderful surroundings, the animals close by in a lush valley. Rooms very nice, clean and tidy, big comfortable beds, great views from the balcony. Private toilet, shower and bath overlooking the valley, towels, soap and shampoo are available.
Swimming pool. In teh room safty box and a bottle of water a day per person.
Room service and escort from and to the room in the evening in the dark, when the buffaloes and maybe other animals were close by.
Wonderful staff, no one mentioned and no one forgotten, all with a smile, took good care of us and made our stay unforgettable.

Our package included full board (not drinks for dinner), all food that was served tasted good and was well cooked.
The safari included water and a lunch box. Tip: bring biscuits / fruit or similar, there is no shop, nothing to buy and on a full day in a safaricar it can be good with some snacks.
Payment at check-out, we paid with Mastercar / Visa but they also take cash. Remember to have cash for tips (tips are left in the tip box at the bar).

Thank you all att SSL for a great stay!
Greetings Liza & Mårten from Sweden

My sister her kids and I had an amazing stay at this elegant hotel and we loved it very much! It is right inside the park surrounded by amazing nature on all sides where animals stream through the lodge. Our room was awesome and spacious, we would all sit on the balcony after safari and watch the beautiful sunset, before resident Masai escorts would come to take us for dinner in the main common area. The pool was a welcome place in the afternoons overlooking the open grasslands, this place was magical to say the least. I have nothing but praise and gratitude to Bobby and his wonderful personnel for making us feel so special.

When we arrived at Serengeti Safari Lodge after our long drive through Ngorongoro Conservation we were warmly welcomed by Bobby Dennis and his wonderful team. The lodge has amazing views of the huge Serengeti as far as the eyes can see. Everything evoked luxury; the wonderfully designed and furnished rooms, the lobby, restaurant and the fine pool all have incredible views. The manager Bobby spared no effort to ensure our 6 day stay was special. He would regularly stop by our table or poolside deck for a chat and also check on how we were fairing, he’d become a friend by the end of our stay.
We enjoyed many special moments from the dances, beautiful sunsets and occasional wildlife sightings from our room deck…… It was magical!
We are already missing our special experience in this resort.

Staying at Serengeti Safari Lodge in Serengeti National Park was an absolute pleasure. The meals offered were exquisite, exceeding my expectations in terms of taste and presentation. The customer care provided by the staff members was exceptional, making me feel like a valued guest throughout my stay. The lodge's location provided a magnificent view of the park, allowing me to immerse myself in the breathtaking landscapes right from the comfort of the lodge. The rooms were impeccably tidy, and the interior designs created a perfect blend of comfort and aesthetics. Serengeti Safari Lodge in Serengeti National Park truly surpassed my expectations, and I can't wait to return for another unforgettable experience

Stayed 2 nights at Serengeti Safari Lodge and it was just the right place to relax after the adventure filled game drives in Serengeti. Being the low season there wasn’t much traffic with the friendly staffs available for our comfort. The lodge is located in a great location with high footfall of animals that we could see from the balcony of our luxurious cottage which was set out beautifully in a serene spot overlooking the open Serengeti plains. It was tastefully furnished with locally made pieces and artwork, a comfortable king size bed, bathtub & open shower and all the frills one can expect to get in a luxury resort.
Meals were buffet style with a variety of meats, salads, fruits veggies, starches…. We enjoyed sipping cocktails from the well-stocked bar at the poolside.
I can’t wait for another visit to this great resort.

We spend only 1 night in this lodge : the room is half tent/half stone, very spacious and comfortable with a balcony and an amazing view facing the bush. We spotted some buffalos in the morning.
When we arrived, a hyena was waiting for us at the entrance of the lodge ! But as soon as it's dark, a "ranger" escorts you to your room or to the restaurant.
Not too much choice at the buffet, but food was good enough.
Staff is really nice, helpful and also "chatty".

We were lucky to have Serengeti Safari Lodge included in our itinerary. The place is perfectly blended with the surroundings and has spectacular views of Serengeti in all directions. In the restaurant Benson was delightful making rounds to check on clients. The other staffs were also attentive making sure nothing was off.
We loved the beautiful rooms with their great views and the pool area which was perfect for soaking in the sun. We did not have to drive far in search of animals because it is right in the middle of the migration corridor and close to the hot air balloon station.
I highly recommend staying at this lodge for an amazing experience.
