Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge

Serengeti National Park, Mara, Tanzania

Situated high on a hill with superb views over the central Serengeti, the two-story thatch cottages are shaped like Masai huts and are set amongst indigenous trees. Each is individually decorated with handcrafted African furniture and colorful Africa-theme soft furnishings with upper level rooms having balconies for you to spend evenings gazing over the plains. If you're in a sociable mood, head to the huge bar and dining area, also rondavel-shaped, which is supported by tall pillars embellished with traditional Makonde (traditional Tanzanian) carvings. There's a gorgeous horizon pool with another great view. All the Serengeti activities are an added cost, but it's worth spending those extra pennies on an exclusive balloon safari and champagne breakfast.


  • there are great views of the Serengeti from the lodge
  • the expanse of open plains make it ideal for hot air ballooning


  • with 66 rooms it's larger than most safari lodges, giving it an impersonal feel
  • all food is buffet style so when the hotel is full you may have to wait in line
  • beware of tsetse flies
