The rebirth of one of South Africa’s most loved family-centric lodges is underway!

Scheduled to open at the beginning of August 2021, Serondella Lodge is being completely reimagined, reinvigorated and elevated. The stunningly contemporary lodge is situated in a private concession in the world-famous Thornybush Nature Reserve, which is part of the Greater Kruger National Park and World Heritage Site.

It is the ultimate of intimate game lodges, situated on a riverine forest on the banks of the ephemeral Monwana river. With huge Feverberries, Appleleaves and Boerbeans as the lodge and suites’ background, the view over the lodge waterhole is almost always interrupted by animals that gave Serondella its name – Elephants.

The name Serondella means “The place of the Elephants” in the local isiStsonga language. The lodge is sublime in all aspects- décor, food design and hosting. And of course, exceptional game viewing safaris; by custom-designed Land Cruisers or by walking safaris. But what sets Serondella apart from many lodges, is the incredibly warm staff.

Arrive as a guest, leave as a friend.
