The very large, luxury Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti is located in the centre of the Serengeti National Park, backing onto an extensive low kopje and with a waterhole adjacent to the lodge. It lies 25km north of the productive wildlife area around Seronera, which has excellent permanent game. This area also hosts the migration in season, although it is usually one of the busier areas of the park.More about Four Seasons Lodge
With 72 rooms and 5 villas, a maximum occupancy of 180 guests, and some 250 staff, the Four Seasons Safari Lodge is the largest property in the Serengeti – and certainly the smartest of the park's large, hotel-style lodges. The furniture and fittings are well suited to the spacious, airy rooms and carefully chosen for their luxurious feel and contemporary safari style. These elements are enhanced by modern comforts and top facilities such as air conditioning, internet access, a spa and a well kitted-out gym.
In addition to the spa and fitness centre, the main facilities at Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti include a comfortable lounge and reception area just inside the lodge entrance on the first floor, and a large bar on the ground floor. The lodge's first floor has a vast restaurant serving international cuisine prepared in an open kitchen. Large glass windows allow diners to enjoy views over the waterhole and Serengeti plains beyond. At the heart of the lodge is an atrium, open to the sky, with tables set around a central fireplace, to create a boma-style dining area. A cavernous wine cellar is available for private dining, and also offers daily wine-tasting with a specific focus on South African wines.
Also installed in the central part of the hotel is a highly impressive, small museum, with a wealth of well-designed modern exhibits, including interactive displays and explanations of the Serengeti ecosystem and the wildebeest migration. It’s really worth spending a bit of time in here! Next-door is a cinema room, which shows regular wildlife documentaries.
Outdoors, a large deck with umbrella-shaded tables is a great location for a light lunch or sundowner cocktail. A second wooden deck, dotted with sunloungers, partly wraps around an infinity swimming pool. Both overlook the waterhole. As well as good numbers of plains game, and the odd predator, herds of elephant frequently come to drink here.
Inspired by a traditional African village, this extraordinary lodge presents a vibrant design concept rich in indigenous craft and cultural detail that is without compare.
Set high on a hill with rolling vistas over the teeming plains of a natural amphitheatre it also enjoys a ringside seat for the greatest show on earth, the annual migration of the wildebeest.
