We stayed at Serondella in May 2014, for 5 nights, for the first part of our Honeymoon. I only have one word to describe our stay... Amazing!! From the warm welcome we received with African drums, drinks and hot towels to when it was sadly time to leave we were extremely well looked after. Mich and Charel were the absolute...

We arrived in Serondella after spending a few days in the Kruger Park. From the moment you arrive and are greeted with the warm face clothes and iced tea we knew this would be an unforgettable experience. There are no words to express our amazing 4 day stay. Sydney our tracker picked us up and drove us to Serondella. The...

Had an amazing time at Serondella...not only was the tracking phenomenal (thanks Sydney and Werner), but the food and social atmosphere matched (Nikki gets credit for this). The whole place has a laid-back, relaxed, gentle feel to it, with great service, incredible safaris, and great accommodations! Not only did we see the Big 5, we got up close and personal...

From arriving to the welcoming sound of the drums until leaving, this was a magical experience. There are only 5 lodges but it is the intimacy of the place that is so magical. Monica and Chewie are fantastic hosts, making us welcome from the moment we arrived. The view of the waterhole from our lodge was great as so many...

What an amazing place to visit, this is probably the smallest Lodge on the Thorneybush Game Reserve but deserve being rated No. 1. Chewie and Monica were fantastic hosts, it was like being invited into their home. The food was fabulous, and we could have taken the chef back with us. All the staff were friendly and helpful and Conright...

Serondella Game Lodge is a charming intimate space in the Thornybush Game Reserve. There are only five villas and we were the only guests on property for two days of our stay so the service was very bespoke. The game drives were fantastic. They are done in an open top Land Cruiser with a tracker and very knowledgeable ranger. We...

We spent 3 nights at Serondella Game Lodge after a great week in the Cape and winelands. Having read all the wonderful reviews we were confident that Serondella would be a fantastic experience and it was.

First safari, and it did not disappoint. The accommodations were first-rate, the service was outstanding, and the food was excellent! In addition, and perhaps more importantly, the game drives were incredible and we were able to see tons of different animals up-close in a short period of time (were only able to stay for two nights). The Lodge is small...

Superb lodge with excellent hosting! Chewie, Monica and their staff really gave us a unique experience. Being a small lodge with limited number of guests it almost felt like being a part of their family. Excellent game drives as well, making all other activities afterwards sort of disappointing

We went to Serondella for a 4 nights stay. We are a family of 6 adults and to kids (8 and 10 years old). For 2 of us this was our second safari experience. The others were exited and did not know what to expect. Serondella is a beautiful place with only 4 lodges. that makes your stay very private...
