We stayed at this lodge and loved the accommodations. Nice bathroom, comfortable beds. Don't be surprised if a buffalo or an Impala are hanging out near your bedrm window. The food was plentiful but buffet and average.

We loved the Serengeti Serena. The view over the Serengeti from the pool/terrace area is amazing, and it was so lovely to look out of our window to find dikdiks, bushbabies, impala, hyraxes, guinea hens right outside. The rooms were quite spacious and comfortable. Our interconnecting family room had both a shower and a bathtub, which we really appreciated. Our...

The architecture of grass thatched huts is beautiful. We had a ground floor unit. The interior is nicely done with a small balcony to watch animals pass by at dusk. We saw dik diks, gazelles and bats each evening.The bar and restaurant continue with the domed roof and dark wood interiors. The dining area is a little cramped making it...

The team at the Serengeti Serena Safari lodge went absolutely above and beyond for a special moment for someone staying at the residence.

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...
