Lion prides feast on the abundance of plain grazers. Solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining the Seronera River, while a high density of cheetahs prowls the south eastern plains.

 

Serengeti Serena Lodge offers comfortable rooms with awesome views across the sweeping plains. Inspired by a traditional African village, separate “rondavel huts” house the luxury en-suite guest rooms each with a balcony. Set high on the saddle of a tree-clad ridge, commanding panoramic views across the Serengeti, this lodge is the ultimate fusion of traditional African architecture and world-class style and winner of numerous awards from the world travel press.
