Serengeti Serena Lodge was a welcome sight at the end of our safari, beautifully structured buildings built inspired from local huts, complete with elephant grass roofs. Each building fit three rooms, which were completely separate and the ground rooms had their own balcony.
Check in with the Expedia booking was uneventful, and we received delicious welcome juices on arrival.
Rooms were clean and spacious - I booked the standard room which was huge; accommodated one king bed and one single bed. Cupboards provided ample storage space as well as a ledge for additional storage. There was a desk, and reading lights for both sides of the bed. The interiors were tasteful, as pictured, as with the exteriors, taking inspiration from local culture. There was a good number of plugs for charging electronics. Balcony was easily accessible with a view of the trees and the plains.
Room came with basic coffee and tea facilities. It was also one of the few rooms in Africa that came equipped with a fan for ventilation.
Bathroom was clean, had a shower with responsive hot water with good pressure. Toiletries were included - although our room initially did not have soap in the dispenser (which was not refilled as I forgot to inform the staff). Water tended to leak a little bit for our particular bathroom despite closing the shower door.
Staff were all friendly and polite, and very professional.
Packed lunch boxes were great (with added Cadbury yum), and dinner was an amazing buffet one
