Serengeti Serena Lodge
is located in the Central
sector of the Serengeti
in Northern Tanzania
This reasonably high specification permanent lodge is set in an impressive elevated position in a relatively quiet location in Central Serengeti. It offers a wide range of facilities, including a nice swimming pool and is perhaps best suited to less outdoorsy guests.
Activities are centred on vehicle safari, with the area offering very solid wildlife viewing year round, notably with incredible predator sightings, especially Jul/Oct. The migration usually passes through May/Jun and Nov/Dec. It is also possible to do balloon safari from this location.
The main potential downsides are the very large size, with 70 guest rooms, and the relatively unattractive and dated interiors. The place is inherently low on safari atmosphere and is most definitely not the classic Serengeti tented camp experience. The lodge is also open to vehicles from all safari companies. The area can experience very high visitor traffic in this central area and activities are largely limited to daytime vehicle safari.UpsidesDownsidesSeasonsPricesTrips
