We spent 2 amazing days in Serondella Game Lodge. Thanks to Chewie and Monica, they were memorable 2 days both in the Game drive as well as the lodge it self. Each room has its amazing and private view and it is impossible not wishing to stay there forever. Throughout the 3 day game drive, we got to see all...

Wonderful 2 night stay at this tiny lodge in Thornybush. Monica and Chewie make one feel that nothing is too much trouble ; their warmth, friendliness and hospitality make this a truly special experience. Conright, Godsave and Moses as well as other staff make it even better . I wish we could have stayed longer - but will be back...

Serondella Lodge was the most amazing place, nestled in the forest, you can't actually see it until you're at the entrance, and from that first welcome with the staff lined up to greet us and a drum beating, it was memorable from the start. It's definitely quite a drive to get to, but this is part of the wildlife experience,...

We spent 3 nights at Serondella and had the most fabulous stay. Our hosts Chewie and Monica were fantastic along with all the other staff including Conright, Moses & Godsave we never wanted for anything. The game drives were always so exciting Chewie's passion and knowledge was second to none. As well as some special sitings we will never forget....

This was my second visit to Serondella. I thought my first was a once in a lifetime trip, and was the most magical place I had ever visited. Chewie and Monica made our first trip such a special one, I cried leaving and promised ourselves we had to return.... We did, but this time to get married!! We brought 9...

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...
