We stayed at Serondella for 7 nights. Cannot recommend the place highly enough. From the moment we arrived , Shelley , Ruan and the rest of the staff made sure every single one of our needs were met. My son Jamie, and his new wife Catrin were forever enthusing about Serondella, and Chewy and Monica....as they had visited two years...

I would give this place 6 stars if I could. Monica & Chewie are the ultimate hosts, the lodge is stunning. There are only 4 "huts" so it's a very intimate place but it's incredibly luxurious & so peaceful. You have a perfect view of the watering hole from the deck & it's incredible to watch the animals just come...

We stayed at Serondella as part of an wedding weekend. We found Staff fantastic and friendly and certainly went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. It was not the 'normal' game viewing weekend, but sitting on our deck provided for special sightings.

Hard to express just how good an experience I had at Serondella. Every element was simply flawless. From the first drumbeat of your arrival, you're in for a treat. Extraordinary and spotless rooms. Great food. Monica and Chewy took care of every need. Every game drive was fabulous. Every moment at the lodge magical. Simple perfect.

We spent a wonderful two nights at Serondella recently. Monica and Chewie provide a highly personal experience. We were greeted warmly and shown to our rooms, a comfortable three bedroom cottage in the grounds. The resort only takes eight people at a time which makes for an intimate and personal experience. The game drives were the obvious highlight. Chewie is...

We spent an amazing 3 days at Serondella recently (early Mar 2017) and I'm not sure that a 5-star review really even gives this resort enough credit. I'm also wishing that we had been able to spend more time there. Monica and Chewie provided an incredible, highly personal experience that is something we will never forget. It was particularly satisying...

We spent 3 days at Serondella and could have easily spent a week. Ron, Shelly, and Jeffrey were wonderful. This is a 5-star plus resort in every aspect. B,L,D were gourmet, not just good. This was a pre-trip extension as part of OAT. We saw the BIG 5 in the first 2 days, and much more. Ron answered every question,...

This breathing destination, in Serondella-has the MOST amazing host and hostess (Monica and Chewy) what a great couple! They treat the guest like kings and queen's - we were so blessed having them. On your day of arrival, guest are welcomed, with big smiles, welcome drinks and drums playing the background. Rooms are exquisite with attention to detail. Thank you...

Could not agree more with recent reviews. Top class on every level. Monica and Chewie are funny, informative, thoughtful, low key individuals who make you feel so at home. Food excellent, accommodation and location all perfect. To Chewie and Conraight thanks for making the game drives truly special and quite exciting but also giving enough time to enjoy the beautiful...

Love the place and the managers. A good Safari has everything to do with good trackers and rangers. And Serondella has them both. We saw the big 5 (so, including the Black Rino) and there was also continual attention for the small five! We'll go back
