Our Review

Four Seasons Serengeti Safari lodge is the perfect five star safari lodge with all the amenities representative of a luxury five star property. We highly recommend it for clients who prefer large properties with key amenities. Four Seasons Serengeti has great food that can be enjoyed at the three restaurants on the property and in addition the safari lodge is family friendly with great amenities that the kids can enjoy. The safari lodge however would not essentially appeal to clients who like intimate tented camps/lodges while on safari as the Four Seasons Serengeti is a relatively large property with a maximum occupancy of 180 guests.
