Fodor's Expert Review Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti

Serengeti National Park, Mara, Tanzania

Far from the traditional safari experience, at Four Seasons you'll find five-star amenities uncommon in the bush, such as white-glove service, multiple gourmet dining options, a fitness center, flat-screen TVs, rain showers, Internet, and air-conditioning. However, a sense of place is retained. The decor stays true to a modern safari style with accents of local artwork and textiles, and the cuisine highlights African ingredients and cooking techniques. Of course, there are also the sweeping views of Serengeti National Park and the on-site infinity pool overlooking a nearby waterhole, a gathering spot for local wildlife. In addition to standard game drives, the resort offers experiences like hot-air ballooning, photography classes, and bush picnics. There's also an indigenous-themed spa, a conservation- and research-focused Discovery Center highlighting local culture and history, and—surely a first for the bush—a business center.
