The hotel feels like you are in the midst of the great migration. The unique rooms, three to a "house" overlook the plain. Beds are comfortable, and the rooms are well appointed. Be aware there is no A/C, but it's not really necessary. A fan provides air flow, and a mosquito net surrounds the bed at night. There is always...

Stayed here for one night on safari, two or three nights would be better to fully enjoy the stunning views from the pool and terrace areas over the plains. Go for upstairs room, I am sure the views are better. Room was comfortable and decorated in African style. Not as grand as some of the other lodges we stayed in....

The Serena Lodges are off the beaten track, and that's good. As much as I thought the Serengeti would be so big, you'd see not many other tourist of safari - I was wrong. So it was nice to be able to get away from the every day grind of safari. If you stay there, ask your guide to take...

The domed rooms and domed dining facilities totally thrilled us. Decorated in African style with makonde carvings and accent items in the rooms. The huts spaced nicely and evenly throughout the environmentally friendly estate located within the Serengeti National Park. A blend of resort with actual wilderness. Security rangers escorting us from one area to another at night. At night...

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.
