We got to this hotel because we were forced by the Kenya situation to cancel a trip at the last minute and change to Tanzania. For what it's worth, the parks in Tanzania are terrific as are most of the accomodations. The Wildlife Lodges in Tanzania, we were told, are in the process of being transferred to private ownership--they were...

The location of this lodge was right in the middle of it all, so the wildlife is not far away. The food here was marginal, with most of the buffet items sitting in the steamers for hours. One morning the pineapple was covered with fruit flies, and the staff (who were generally unattentive) didn't seem to notice or care. The...

Two Night Stay as part of a Safari Package One of two highlights of the holiday, the other being the Ngorongoro Crater. The hotel itself was superbly located in a truly isolated position - no light pollution and at night all one could here was the wildlife. There were excellent viewing platforms at the hotel and even has its own...

Awful rooms with broken sanitation (not mended for years), the worse food I got for a long time - it is just a rip-off for tourists. You are not allowed to go to the rubbish-pit, but it is worth trying it. They throw everything away there, you can see animals (monkeys and others) with deep wounds, because they cut themselves...

You don't want to stay there. Enough other options available in the Serengeti. It needs maintenance, furniture replacement, better cooks, better service and all the rest. All "Hotels & Lodges Tanzania ltd" Wildlife lodges seem to share the same issues: management takes your money, the location / view is great but infrastructure and service is terrible. Don't go to the...

Fantastic location in the middle of the Serengeti but an awful place to stay. We stayed for 2 nights at this lodge and for the whole time we were there we never had any water, could not even flush the toilet. When the manager was tracked down he laughed and offered us a bucket of water. At the end of...

Seronera Wildlife Lodges was great, with good food (buffet included, alla carte extra) and fantastic views from the terrace. The architecture of the main buildings is very good, with wooden structures emerging from the huge rounded rocks of the kopjes. The bar is especially pleasant. The rooms were fine if not fancy, but the position is the important thing –...

We spent 2 days in Seronera Wildlife lodge before traveling to Lobo area. In ealy July we found a lot of animals around Seronera area. In just 1 day we saw cheetahs, leopards and 10/15 lions. Seronera lodge was above our expectations: comfortable rooms, good food, and very elegant even if not luxury. Lobo wildlife Lodge was the same but...

The location of the Serengeti Seronera is amazing. The natural rock formations have been used as the foundation for the main complex which results in a great combination of the natural and man-made. However, the place seems to have been allowed to deteriorate. All over there were signs that things hadn't been repaired or redecorated in some time. But the...

We stayed here on a Kuoni Travel Collection safari for a couple of nights; I’ve reviewed elsewhere the accommodation they use at lake Manyara (Lake Manyara Hotel) and Ngorongoro (Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge). The Seronera Wildlife Lodge is built round a stone kopje and is in the best position for Central Serengeti game drives. The large granite boulders forming the kopje...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Seronera Wildlife Lodge is artfully constructed round a rocky outcrop from glass and wood elements, perfectly blending into its surrounding; next to the lodge, several waterholes attract day and night the most amazing animals, providing a unique opportunity for a close encounter with the so called Big Five. The Lodge is only 5 minutes far from the departing point of the hot - air balloon safaris, which offer a thrilling birds-eye wildlife perspective of the vast plains of the Serengeti. ... more   less
