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...

Pros: Serena Serengeti is an oasis in the midst of the Serengeti. Beautiful rooms with an unfenced property so be prepared to walk out and find some animals … we saw wild buffaloes at the poolside. 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,...

A beautiful hotel right in the middle Serengeti with all the service and amenities. The staff was professional and the meals were good, also lots of entertainment from local artists and we had breathtaking view of the valley from our room.

After seeing some recent reviews about stealing going on, my family was a bit worried about potentially staying here. However, we had an excellent stay here!! Of course, anyone staying in any hotel has to be careful and prudent by keeping valuables in the safes which are kept in each room. We always are careful about our stuff, and had...

Serena runs very good lodges and the Serengeti is no exception. The only negative, and it is not a big one, is the buffet dinners; they can get quite busy and at times chaotic. The staff, like at their other properties, are polite well trained and responsive to guest wishes. They also have coffee, tea and pastries available for those...
