Pros: Serena Serengeti is an oasis in the midst of the Serengeti. Beautiful rooms with an unfenced property so be prepared to walk out and find some animals … we saw wild buffaloes at the poolside. Zebras and Giraffes are fairly common too. The dining and cafe tent is well appointed with all day unlimited tea /coffee/ milk beverages. There...

This was our first of three Serena hotels. The other two were the Serena Serengeti and the Serena Stone Town in Zanzibar. I have nothing but good things to say about all three. The rooms are very nice, the food is delicious (buffet breakfast and dinner), but the best quality in my opinion is the staff. They are extremely professional,...

After seeing some recent reviews about stealing going on, my family was a bit worried about potentially staying here. However, we had an excellent stay here!! Of course, anyone staying in any hotel has to be careful and prudent by keeping valuables in the safes which are kept in each room. We always are careful about our stuff, and had...

Serena runs very good lodges and the Serengeti is no exception. The only negative, and it is not a big one, is the buffet dinners; they can get quite busy and at times chaotic. The staff, like at their other properties, are polite well trained and responsive to guest wishes. They also have coffee, tea and pastries available for those...

My friends were robbed in this hotel by the cleaning staff. We left for the pool after arrival for probably an hour tops, came back to stolen cash, sunglasses, etc. Manager was trying to make sure that our stay will be ok after this, but experience was rather ruined. Rooms truly need some updates as look and feel dated.
