Reviewed 3 August 2015

We stayed for two nights as a family (kids had a bunk in the smaller room). Most rooms are probably double with it's own little verandah. Cecilia and Roger are the perfect hosts, and Cecilia's cooking is excellent, so we would recommend preordering dinner. However, there are restaurants nearby, but nice to be able to drink wine and not worry about driving. Breakfast was also good. There were three dogs and a great big lawn for the kids to run around on. The ambiance both inside and out where great, and fabulous weather even in winter (cool nights but often sunny days in this area). The only downside was that the bed was harder than we like. We will be back!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room seperate to the main lodge if you want with to be very quiet and/or romantic.

We recently stayed 5 nights at Seringa and perhaps our only complaint is that we could not stay longer. The rooms are tidy, simple and rustic. This is not an expensive and fancy resort, but a charming, comfortable lodge that makes you feel like you have entered someone's home and been made to feel very welcome. The meals were fantastic and we ate as many dinners there as possible. We took an evening safari (led by an outside guide) which was terrific and two day safaris with Roger. He made sure our every need was met and that we were able to see as much wildlife as possible. Our 9 and 10 year old loved every minute. Dogs were friendly, huge grass area for kids to play, pool was chilly but nice and clean. The patio out back was our favorite spot to relax and read and sip some wine. The employees were all friendly and helpful, esp Ms Nellie who taught our kids to play Juba. No dinner on Sundays so we suggest the Loose Mongoose which is not far to drive. Golf a round at White River if you have time. We rented a car from Johannesburg to drive to Seringa and were then able to take day trips to the Elephant Sanctuary, Shangana Cultural Village and the Jane Goodall Institute Chimp Eden.

THANK YOU for a wonderful stay Cecilia and Roger!

We really enjoyed our stay at Seringa Lodge. The rooms were big and light with great beds! Helpful and charming staff -great garden with pool. Nice to sit in the evening on the porsh and listen to the sound of night animals, taking a beer or a glass of wine from the bar.

This is my favorite place to go for rest and lovely food outside Nelspruit. The kids also love it. A cosy lodge with fantastic service and great food and wine. Roger and Cecilie are just amazing and the atmosphere make you feel at home. They have dogs and my daughter who normally are afraid of dogs love to play with them. The garden is big enough for playing football or running around and they have a small pool. Roger is the perfect guide for a day trip to Kruger, he is so knowledgeable. I have done it twice and really enjoyed it.
