10/10 Exceptional

Lovely lodge, great room overlooking the water hole so saw elephants and buffalo come to drink from the comfort of our room! Good food. Game drives were excellent and our tracker and spotter were first class. Tracking animals right through the undergrowth to find them. (We have done several safaris before so know A good tracker when we see one).

Absolutely fabulous can thoroughly recommend! Amazing staff made you feel like part of the family in this small personal lodge. Monika and Chewey would do anything to ensure you have an experience of a lifetime and we did. The animals we saw on safari including all big five were beyond our expectations and the food and hospitality was second to none! Loved it!

Absolutely amazing safari and lodge
Everything about Serondella is incredible, from the safari incorporated transfers from the airport to the super friendly and knowledgeable staff. Early morning and dusk drives are full of wonder, with Chewie (the ranger) bringing the animals and environment to life. We saw all the big 5 and much much more. The lodge itself is immaculate, run by Monica, with great rooms, excellent food, a view over a watering hole full of animals and a refreshing pool. The bar is always open, and the food plentiful! We had a truly epic time.

Great safari lodge
Amazing stay! We stayed three nights and the lodge was lovely with views of wildlife from the rooms and main areas. All the staff was super nice and helpful and they have a great ranger and tracker that make sure you get to see all the animals you want as well as sharing lots of interesting information on these different animals. The food was delicious and the service top notch. It's a small lodge so you get personalized attention, smaller groups during the safari outings and you get to know your fellow travelers. I strongly recommend this lodge and reserve to all those wanting a unique safari experience!

Best experience - ever
Despite reading reviews beforehand, I really had no idea what to expect on this trip, and this trip far exceeded my expectations. While the game trips were clearly the highlight (I saw all big five and then some - repeatedly and in action), the facility itself and staff were over the top with attentiveness and service. Everything was anticipated and I felt like I was home. My hosts were Nikki and Werner and I don't believe I could have met a sweeter couple. I will definitely return. (My accommodations ratings are relative to the location)

Great Personal Attention
A wonderful lodge on the Thornybush Game Reserve. The management and staff are very friendly and accomodating. The personalized attention provided to you is clearly evident. Chewie, Monica, Conwright, Moses, and the rest of the staff took care of us very well during our recent visit and we got to see so many of the animals up close and personal!

Achei perfeita minha estadia no Serondella. Funcionários prestativos, atenciosos e agradaveis, te tratam como família! Os gamedrive foram muito legais, conseguimos ver os big five, cada dia uma emoção nova. Os quartos limpos, confortáveis e grande. As refeições são espetaculares, tudo feito com muito sabor e carinho. Transfer do aero pro lodge tb foi excelente, enfim voltarei sem duvida.
