At a Glance


  • 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

Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge Review

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. If you need to unwind, head to your deck and gaze far out over the plains. You'll get lost in your thoughts and the view. 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. The food here is tasty and plentiful, and 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.
