I had never stayed at Four Seasons property before but this property lived up to the high end reputation. Amazing view onto the Serengeti from every part of the hotel...especially the infiniti pool adjacent to the watering hole where a group of Elephants would come to drink daily! The rooms are spectacular with views from every part of thr room!... More

I've stayed at a lot of great hotels but this one was unbelievable! The setting is extraordinary in the middle of the Serengeti plains where, like the song goes, "you can see forever." The rooms are beautiful and immaculately clean. The restaurant is lovely and serves wonderful food by a great staff. There's even sort of a museum on premises... More

Fabulous Lodge with infinity pool overlooking the waterhole which elephants & zebra regularly visited. At night big cats could be viewed on the waterhole cameras. Ideally suited for game drives to view four out of the big five. Accommodation at a standard you would expect from a five star London hotel with food to match. All staff very attentive but... More

On the drive in to the resort over a pitted, rutted dirt road within moments of being picked up from the airfield, we saw Cape Buffalo, Zebras, Giraffes, Jackals and birds that would make a bird watcher salivate.
