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,...

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...

Ruan was a great guide and Shelly was very helpful. The full moon night on Sept 21st was an exceptional drive with amazing wildlife. As I ventured through the next two weeks in Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe, this night continued to be the most memorable one.

We spent 3 nights at Serondella and it was an amazing experience. Ranger Chewie and tracker Conright made sure that at each of the day's game drives (one at sunrise, one late afternoon) we'd see lions, elephants, giraffes, leopard or cape buffalo. We even saw both leopard and lion cubs that absolutely made for great photo opps. Monica was our...
