Positioned in a prime location within the Greater Kruger Park, Serondella – meaning Place of Elephants – invites guests to relax, unwind, and reconnect in South Africa’s premier wildlife territory.

The Serondella Experience

Prime Wildlife Viewing

South Africa’s most iconic wildlife finds a home at Serondella, where elephants gather in family herds, resident leopards watch from the trees, and powerful prides of lion call into the night. At the lodge and out on game drive, the wildlife experience is second to none.

Family Friendly

This is where families come together in nature, to bond across generations, and celebrate a shared natural heritage that connects us all. Family suites, children’s activities, and lessons from nature for every age group.

Award-Winning Team

Serondella’s guiding team is celebrated for their award-winning expertise, superior knowledge and decades of experience. Our team brings comfort and cuisine that will exceed your expectations in luxury and hospitality.

The Lodge

Designed to feel like home, the lodge draws families and friends together at a central gathering place. This is where meals are served overlooking the private waterhole, lazy days are spent at the rim-flow pool, and conversations around a boma fire extend into the night.

Dining Experience

Head Chef Thomas brings flair and personality to our expert kitchen where he and our highly trained team bring together flavour and variety to create a wholesome and health-orientated food experience.

Luxurious Accommodation

Our expansive suites are carefully designed to create ample space and bring comfort to families sharing with children, and to couples looking for privacy and tranquility. Private pools, bathtubs under the trees, and views of the waterhole add to the element of luxury.

Specially designed to accommodate families and amplify privacy, we offer a range of accommodation options, each of which are generously spacious with private outdoor living areas and plunge pools.

A self-contained suite for larger families offering space, privacy, and comfort with three bedrooms and bathrooms, a lounge, private garden, verandah, and plunge pool. This is the perfect place to accommodate different generations in a home-like environment.

Serondella was designed to feel like a home away from home for families and friends and to offer luxurious tranquillity and privacy to individuals and couples.
