Ruan was a great guide and Shelly was very helpful. The full moon night on Sept 21st was an exceptional drive with amazing wildlife. As I ventured through the next two weeks in Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe, this night continued to be the most memorable one.

We spent a little over 2 and 1/2 weeks in South Africa and Zimbabwe, including 3 game lodges. Serondella was the best of our trip. Thank you to our ranger, Ruon and our tracker, Conright. You were both amazing in your skills and level of expertise for tracking the animals and giving us explanations of their lives and habits. Best...

We spent 3 nights at Serondella and it was an amazing experience. Ranger Chewie and tracker Conright made sure that at each of the day's game drives (one at sunrise, one late afternoon) we'd see lions, elephants, giraffes, leopard or cape buffalo. We even saw both leopard and lion cubs that absolutely made for great photo opps. Monica was our...

Serondella is very small and private. The staff is especially gracious and well-informed, especially our guide (Ruan) and tracker (Jeremy). The food is exquisitely prepared by chef Godsave. The receptionist, Shelley, could not have been more helpful. Our excursions into the bush were richly rewarding and memorable.

Our stay at Serondella was outstanding, we could not recommend it enough. Shelley (host), Ruan (guide), Moses (barman) and Jeffrey (tracker) were all truly lovely people and very hospitable. Ruan's passion for his job was contagious, he had a great sense of humour and his knowledge of the wildlife and flora in the area was something we were constantly amazed...

What a great place to experience our first safari trip to Africa. Serondella is a small lodge in the Thornybush private game reserve. We saw all the big five at very close range, were treated like kings by the staff and enjoyed interesting, fresh and varied food at our three meals a day. Every day began with coffee and then...

The most wonderful place we have ever stayed! Monica and Chewie were excellent hosts and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our room was immaculate and every lunch and dinner included authentic African cuisine. The routine of an early game drive, late lunch and then a sunset game drive was perfect. Our main aim was to see as...

Monica and Chewie run this wonderful place with help of skillful staff and my wife and I enjoyed every minute of our 3 night stay. Our room was overlooking a water hole where we could see animals come and go all day. Chewie's knowledge and passion is obvious from your first drive and it is so wonderful to see people...

Our family comprising grandparents, children, and grandchildren (a group of seven) occupied all three units of Serondella Game Lodge for several days two years ago.
