Perched on a ridge overlooking the famous short grass plains of the Serengeti lies what is perhaps one of pioneer safari lodges that Tanzania has to offer. Located in central Serengeti, the Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge mixes deluxe style accommodation with traditional African design to create a unique flair that blends perfectly with its natural surroundings. Groves of acacia trees and flowing streams cool the domed “rondavels” that are spaced widely across the grounds. A fading vista pool sits peacefully at the edge of the ridge, giving you a perfect view to the majestic Serengeti plains.

The designs of the rondavels echo the historic site of “Ol Duvai” which means “birthplace of mankind”, the paleolithic area that is almost 2 million years old. With AfricanMecca, you will be audience to the world’s greatest wildlife show as Serengeti is home to over a million wildebeests and thousands of zebras that go on an annual migration in search of greener pastures.

Film makers and documentarists travel to Africa to witness the magnificent wildlife in this area. The Big Five of Africa, namely the lion, elephant, leopard, rhinoceros and buffalo, can also be seen. The other casts of the show are the predators like hyenas and cheetahs.

Nowhere else on earth can you experience the majesty and glory of nature as the animals follow the primordial journey from the south going west, continuing to the northern border, crossing the Mara River and then ending up in the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, fighting hunger, thirst and predation in the process with the return of the wildebeest to the east during the short rains, and then south again in search for better grazing grounds and also to drop their young calves to renew life in the wild.

Accommodation At Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge

Guests on their African holiday at Serengeti Serena will find a private entrance leading to their rondavels. Each of the 66 rooms has its own private balcony overlooking the panoramic view of the Serengeti plains. An airy bedroom punctuated with a fitted comfortable bed with some rooms having twin beds. The spacious suites have a luxurious king-size bed with mosquito net, dressing area and en-suite marble bathroom. Intricately carved wood furnishings and other lavish traditional art complete the suite decors.

You can avail of many amenities including telephone, WiFi, laundry, valet and shoe shine services. Convenience is a top priority with the presence of room service and medical service. Adjoining rooms can be allocated by the lodge staff to accommodate families. Children’s meals, cots and babysitting services can also be arranged with prior request, ensuring a very comfortable stay for all guests. A dining room, TV room, business centre, conference area and gift shop complete the lodge, making sure that all your needs will be met with good service in a superb location perfect for all events.

Exquisite Makonde carvings decorate the rooms and the dining room, a splendid domed area where you can spend your down time. Traditional and heritage art as well as cultural performances are enacted at the lodge. A variety of events like weddings, corporate receptions and other parties can be staged at Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge with the help of the experienced staff. Guests like honeymooners, families on holidays and independent travelers looking for their next adventure will surely enjoy the different experience that your Tanzania safari with AfricanMecca can deliver.

Safari At Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge

The highlight of your Tanzania photo tour will be game drives where you will track down the greatest wildlife show on earth – season dependent. Home to over a million wildebeest as well as zebras, gazelles and a myriad of predators like lions, cheetahs, leopard, hyenas, Serengeti features the annual migration of hoofed herbivores towards better grazing grounds. While the predators hunt down the compromised, weak or the young wildebeests, the strong adults scramble across the plains and journey towards the north along the western corridor.

The Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge Safari is the perfect way to experience all these happening. Custom-built safari vehicles, open-pop up roof for maximum viewing, allow all guests including children to be part of this splendor. Experienced and knowledgeable AfricanMecca safari tour guides will take you on game drives early in the morning or in the late afternoon. Radio links between guides allow sharing wildlife tracking information i.e. last sighting, footprints and sounds.

Family game drives can be arranged to have a break near the Grumeti River while out on a full day excursion. In the true nature of an African safari, you may see the herbivores resting with a predator or two waiting nearby, watching closely for signals of weakness from the herd that they can prance on. The safari vehicles can carry refreshments onboard, and the lodge staff may even prepare a picnic basket for the family. Meals can also be prepared for those who want to go on a day-long drive on their Serengeti tour.

Being a culturally rich place, the Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge also offers other activities that can be enjoyed. You may go on a Serengeti balloon safari to see the spectacular plains from a bird’s eye view. This magnificent aerial Serengeti trip will allow you to view the plains and its residents from an unobtrusive location. Ride on a Serengeti balloon and witness the mating, grazing and simple life led by the animals. You can even dip lower and see the hippos resting in the waters.

Breakfast is cooked in the bush for awaited guests who are on their last flight leg of admiration of the majestic landscape and stunning beauty created by nature and shaped by the elements through time. You can also enjoy bird watching, nature walks around the lodge as well as cultural and acrobatic shows. Surely, there is something for everyone to enjoy during this grand Tanzania vacation.

A place full of history, culture and nature – this is what Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge is all about. In the comforts of the lodge and all its amenities and features, you will enjoy the wonders that Mother Nature has to offer and be witness to an ancient practice of the wild. You will be part of the journey towards better pastures, and see the fight against hunger, thirst and predation, and experience the spectacle, grandeur and magnificence that the annual migration brings.

When staying at Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge in Central Serengeti (Seronera River Wilderness), we recommend combining it with your Northern Tanzania safari to Tarangire, Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater. End your trip with a Swahili cultural tour and beach holiday in Zanzibar.

You may optionally extend out to offbeat parks in Southern and Western Tanzania such as Nyerere (Selous), Ruaha or Katavi ending with a chimpanzee trekking safari at Gombe or Mahale by the relaxing Lake Tanganyika.
