Four Seasons Serengeti
Studded right in the centre of the Serengeti National Park’s 15,000sq km expanse, this Four Seasons retreat affords breathtaking panoramas of the wild savannah at every opportunity, an inspiring sight to accompany you through each moment of the day. And while Four Seasons Serengeti is without doubt a first-class resort, with plenty of facilities to prove it, this particular hideaway isn’t as ‘Four Seasons’ as you would think. Rather than polished, glossy décor, you’ll find a rustic-chic design awash with thatch, dark wood and patterned fabrics, feeling suitably at home in this bucolic Tanzanian setting.
While it really is a luxurious cocoon of a lodge, the Four Seasons Serengeti encourages you to explore beyond, providing endless opportunities to engage with the natural surroundings alongside a team of park rangers, naturalists and Maasai tribesmen who take you to the most beautiful corners of the national park. Wildlife sightings are plentiful, with creatures big and small easy to spot on game drives and nature walks, or simply from the comfort of the hotel; there’s even a watering hole right next door, which attracts all sorts of fascinating animals. The Serengeti is in fact a fantastic place to witness the Great Migration, so if it’s on your bucket list – you need look no further!
Between forays into the savannah, you can unwind back at the Four Seasons in one of many ways. You might be tempted by the open-air spa, specialising in locally-inspired rituals, or simply sitting with a drink on the central terrace, perhaps your private sundeck while glimpsing animals just a stone’s throw away. Alternatively, indulge yourself in a delectable meal at one of three superb restaurants. There’s also a games room for some light entertainment, a kids club to engage younger visitors with the local culture and environment, plus a Discovery Centre that’s open to all ages with its informative displays, documentaries and interactive map. All of this is sealed with signature Four Seasons hospitality, making for an indulgent but still authentic way to experience the Serengeti, on an unforgettable safari adventure.
