Stayed at Four Seasons on the last 3 nights of our 12 night safari trip. From the minute we arrived, until the minute we left, the entire staff and lodge exceeded our expectations! Everything was wonderful! From management to housekeeping, this lodge goes above and beyond for the

Dear mzh602 Thank you for sharing your feedback with us following your recent safari adventures in the Serengeti. I appreciate your nice comments regarding the staff and glad to hear you got to experience a visit from the elephants. I have reviewed your needs improvement comments and regarding our environmental conscious this is something that we are dedicated to and are always looking at ways to continue to improve our sustainable & environmental practices and community support. Regarding plastic you would not have used or seen a plastic straw on our property, we also have a RO plant on site which provides safe drinking water throughout the property. This has seen a drop in the amount of plastic bottle usages and soon we will almost be completely plastic bottle free. Thank again for your feedback it is great to see guests just as concerned about the environment as we are. Kind Regards Justin Stevens Resort Manager

We travelled from Chicago, via Heathrow, and overnighted in an airport hotel in Nairobi. Leaving early the next morning, we travelled via Dar es Salaam and Arusha to the Seronera airstrip. It was a little convoluted, but I wanted to travel using One World Alliance and only on air

can watch the animals wander by while taking a bath or shower!
We are planning to stay 4 nights in Four Seasons Serengeti lodge in late July. We want to see Great Migration thru land and also via balloon Safari. Does Four Seasons offer Ballon Safari over the great migration
July is a good time to see the Migration in Northern Tanzania, meaning a great opportunity for a river crossing which is very exciting. However this means it may not be possible to see it during a Balloon Safari. The Balloon Safari have set locations they can fly over based on safety and ensuring control of the balloon, therefore it can never be guaranteed to fly over the migration; it is very much nature dependent. You could do a vehicle safari to take in the migration and then a Balloon Safari for all the other animal sightings along with the expansiveness and endless plains of the Serengeti itself. Best wishes, Martin

Hello, my husband and I plan to travel to serengeti early July next year, we have never been to africa before and we plan to stay at hour season for four night. We also want to stop by one more place for another 3-4 days. I'm looking forward to suggestions!!Thanks guys
I would suggest a stop in Central Serengeti at Four Seasons mid safari as well as a few days further north to see the migration. If you have seven days for safari, then I would suggest two days at The Crater, three days with us at the Four Seasons and end with two days tracking the migration further north in the Serengeti. I would be happy to answer more of your questions if you wish to email me on martin.cody @fourseasons,com Best wishes, Martin

Is there away to fly directly from nairobi to the seronera airstrip? And if so what airline?
Its not possible - You will have to take the small planes. The best way is to fly from Nairobi to Migori and then cross the border and then fly to Sonera from Tanzania. Another option is to go to Arusha and fly from there --- its a small airstrip

For those who have stayed in a terrace suite with a plunge pool, did the terrace feel safe from wildlife? Did you sit out and swim in the evening? I’m worried about animals accessing the terrace and pool while I’m in there with my kids since I’m a scaredy cat! Thanks in advance.
Perfect and perfect - Nothing to worry about. Excellent everything and feel free to enjoy the pool and sounds of animals. Be aware of the little insects though

What's the best company to book with please? Looking for all inclusive if possible
If you are looking to stay in multiple properties you can look at high end operators such as Micato / Abercrombie & Kent / Legendary Expeditions etc. There are a number of operators in Tanzania who specialize in Safari holidays. If you are looking to only stay at the Four Seasons then we can assist with all ground logistics and safari activities. I hope this helps, best wishes, Martin

"We had a terrace suite which had a plunge pool and a great view of the watering hole."
"I don't think you can go wrong anywhere in this hotel"
"While we saw no animals visiting the watering hole in front of our room, we did hear an elephant roar several times as he passed said hole."
"check room location - some can have a long walk! BUT i am sure that every room has incredible views!"
"Horizon View Room overlooking the waterhole!!"
