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.

PROS

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

CONS

  • 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
