Located adjacent to the world-renowned Western Corridor & Grumeti River, the 14,763-square km area is home to a million wildebeest – the dominant herbivore but also the main prey of predators as they continually roam in search of fresh grasslands for survival. Cooled by groves of acacia trees and watered by streams, Serengeti Serena Lodge attracts game close to guests who can even watch what’s happening on the plains below from the coolth of the rim-flow pool at the lodge.
Also situated close to the Paleolithic site of Ol Duvai Gorge, which is a steep-sided ravine to the northwest of the Ngorongoro Crater.
Some two million years old and where dance performances and displays of traditional art are also of interest to the visitor, a Serengeti Serena Lodge stay is richly balanced with activities.
Each Serengeti Serena Lodge suite is a double story and built in stone with its own balcony, bedroom, stone bathroom and carved wooden furniture. The main living area at Serengeti Serena Lodge is dominated by a domed dining room leading to a scenic bar and terrace area, a meeting place for travellers as they share game sightings over an ice-cold beer or sundowner cocktails.
And as Serengeti Serena Lodge is booked for conferences and weddings, WiFi and satellite television is a given and there’s even a business centre for those who need to mix business with pleasure. But for those who are here to relax completely, a wide range of sports activities is on offer.
Guests at Serengeti Serena Lodge can be taken to nearby Ikoma and Sikuma tribal communities, on a cultural visit to see where handicrafts are made. Serengeti Serena Lodge is one of the few permitted within a national park and so the eco ethos of the camp is equally sensitive to the environment, with recent efforts focusing on energy conservation.
Serengeti Serena Lodge is 335kms from Arusha but transfer services are organised from the adjacent airstrip. Children of all ages are welcome and the lodge offers a full medical service.
