“A good, quiet guest house with excellent food attached”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2011

Stayed on two (separate) nights. Comfortable accommodation one spacious double room, the other smaller but large enough.

Roger Briggs is an experienced tracker who takes safari's into the Kruger park in his own game viewing vehicle; he is also qualified to lead walking safaris. His wife, Cecilia, provides excellent 3 course dinners at a modest cost (ZAR 165 pp 2011). Both are charming hosts and take trouble to ensure their guests are happy. There is a large garden and pool overlooked by a covered terrace populated with comfortable chairs. Meals are served here in hot weather.

Highly recommended - quality accommodation and good value.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2011

Stayed here in 2010 when doing a trip around the Kruger area - we had stayed in Hazyview before coming to Seringa Lodge and that is far better for trips and things to do in and around the Kruger, compared to White River. Seringa Lodge itself is wonderful however - and worth going simply for the food, and the grounds. We stayed about 4 nights - when we arrived the host showed us to our room which was pleasant and clean - leading onto the gardens and pool area, he did not really give us much guidance or offer to help with any questions etc, we were just kind of left there - however, that was not a real problem - when we did want to find out some details about the area over the next few days both hosts were very helpful - I would just expect a bit of a better "welcome". It is worth staying at Seringa simply for the food which was just wonderful - my only warning would be that on the occasions when the lodge was not full, then the hostess did not provide evening meals and we therefore had no choise but to drive out to the surrounding restaurants - and there are not a huge amount in the immediate area. Overall though, a wonderful place which I would recommend.

We were delighted we chose Seringa Lodge for our first night in South Africa, Cecilia and Roger are fantastic hosts. We had 2 nights here before our trip into Kruger, on our first night we had an evening meal cooked by Cecilia, which was as good as any top london restaurant would serve, and a great setting to enjoy it from. When we left for our trip, Roger gave some great advice on how to get the best of our 8 nights in the park, which turned out to be invaluable, as February isn't the easiest time for game viewing in Kruger. Seringa Lodge is everything you would want from the location, the rooms, the staff, and especially the hosts, highly recomended.

We have now stayed at Seringa about 8 times over the last years. The vibe, cleanliness of the rooms, food and roger and cecillia's enthousiasm are always fantastic. The lodge is about 15 min driving from the entrance gate of Kruger, so for safari's with Roger you can be there in no-time.

I just took a group of 10 clients to Seringa lodge and every one of them had the BEST reviews. Seringa is a beautiful property in a BEAUTIFUL location. The staff and owners were MORE then helpful. I would HIGHLY recommend this place for anyone traveling through the area. Its a perfect place to unwind and relax for a few days before heading to the next adventure.
