Four Seasons Safari Lodge

We don't like big hotels. We much prefer small, intimate lodges offering an authentic safari experience. That said, if big hotels are your thing, the Four Seasons is a very luxurious and well appointed hotel right in the heart of the Serengeti. The best of its kind.

Four Seasons Safari Lodge- The Details

The Four Seasons sits hit on a small hill overlooking the rolling grass plains of the Serengeti. Its central location, just north of Seronera, guarantees excellent game viewing year-round but also means many other vehicles. It has a permanent water hole out in front of the hotel, allowing for game viewing from every room and even the swimming pool. The hotel is as you would expect of a Four Season property – luxurious, well appointed and with high standards of service.
Even the lowest standard of room is fairly luxurious. All have terraces with great views while the Presidential Villa has its own water hole. The Horizon rooms are the best standard option with fantastic views and the Terrace Suites offer private plunge pools overlooking the Serengeti Plains. Die to the size of the hotel, the further rooms require access by golf buggy.
The hotel’s facilities include three restaurants, a bar and wine cellar, library, gym, conference room, art gallery and gift shop. There is a relaxed restaurant for light lunches and snacks, buffets at Kulas Restaurant and African feasts at Bomas Grill. The main activity here is game drives in the Serengeti which are payable extra if you choose to use the Four Seasons or you can ‘bring in’ a private vehicle on a private basis from Arusha. The lodge is in close proximity to a balloon launch site for sunrise hot air balloon safaris. Guests are also invited to use the lodge’s innovative Discovery Centre, where they learn about conservation etc.

Bilila Lodge Kempinski - The location is of course beautiful, situated in the Seronera area of the Serengeti. We were collected from the airstrip by a superb driver who turned-out to be our guide/driver for all the private game-drives we'd organised through the hotel.

The hotel itself is luxurious and stylish, delivering all modern requirements yet somehow without losing the true feeling of being in the middle of the Serengeti with the most perfect of views available from hotel rooms, infiniti pool, terrace or restaurant.

Staff were brilliant and incredibly friendly, providing world-class service.  The food was again world-class and to rival some Michelin rated restaurants in my opinion.

The real star of the show is of course the Serengeti itself and our very skilled and friendly driver/guide showed superb knowledge and got us around to see everything possible. That included two sightings of leopards and even a pair of mating lions, which I'd assume is relatively rare. My wife and I were very impressed none-the-less.

This Kempinski hotel demonstrated what's possible with some thought and attention, offering true luxury in the middle of the Serengeti for those wanting to experience the place without perhaps sleeping under canvas.

Definitely a place we'd visit again..!!
