Serondella is very small and private. The staff is especially gracious and well-informed, especially our guide (Ruan) and tracker (Jeremy). The food is exquisitely prepared by chef Godsave. The receptionist, Shelley, could not have been more helpful. Our excursions into the bush were richly rewarding and memorable.

Our stay at Serondella was outstanding, we could not recommend it enough. Shelley (host), Ruan (guide), Moses (barman) and Jeffrey (tracker) were all truly lovely people and very hospitable. Ruan's passion for his job was contagious, he had a great sense of humour and his knowledge of the wildlife and flora in the area was something we were constantly amazed... More

What a great place to experience our first safari trip to Africa. Serondella is a small lodge in the Thornybush private game reserve. We saw all the big five at very close range, were treated like kings by the staff and enjoyed interesting, fresh and varied food at our three meals a day. Every day began with coffee and then...

The most wonderful place we have ever stayed! Monica and Chewie were excellent hosts and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our room was immaculate and every lunch and dinner included authentic African cuisine. The routine of an early game drive, late lunch and then a sunset game drive was perfect. Our main aim was to see as... More

Monica and Chewie run this wonderful place with help of skillful staff and my wife and I enjoyed every minute of our 3 night stay.

We loved everything about this place. The staff was friendly and helpful, the ranger and tracker were extremely knowledgable. We saw all of the big five including a black rhino and lion cubs.
