The best luxury safari lodges in the Serengeti National Park

Located in TanzaniaSerengeti National Park is probably best known for being host to the Great Migration. This spectacle is when the vast savannah plains are flooded with wildebeest, zebra, and other animals – with predators following hungrily on their heels. As you can imagine, this journey features more drama and action than Hollywood's top blockbusters! However, even when the Wildebeest Migration is not passing through, the Serengeti is one of the best places for a Big 5 safari or for luxury safari experience. If you've ever dreamt of going on a safari in East Africa, then you were more than likely picturing the Serengeti's classic red sunsets set against flat-topped acacia trees, with plenty of fascinating wildlife roaming around.

The Serengeti is one of the world's few genuinely unspoilt areas that remain in its wildest form. However, that does not mean you have to settle for uncomfortable accommodation. In fact, at Rhino Africa, we always want our guests to travel in style! Luckily, there are plenty of high-end safari lodges in the Serengeti National Park, each with a host of exhilarating activities on offer, from bushwalks to hot air balloon rides and many more. Plus, these luxury lodges and camps are often located right on the Great Migration route for ultra-exclusive sightings of this show! 

Some of our favourite luxury Serengeti safari lodges to stay at:

  • Serengeti Pioneer Camp – Step into the shoes of a 1930s pioneer at this luxury tented camp with sweeping views.

  • Singita Mara River Tented Camp – Overlooking the Mara River, this camp offers a front-row seat of the Great Migration crossing this river. 

  • Serengeti Under Canvas  – Mobile tented camps moving around to follow the Great Migration for the best vantage points. 

  • Sanctuary Kusini Camp – The only permanent camp in the Serengeti's southern sector and set on the Great Migration's route.

  • Lemala Kuria Hills Lodge – Glass-fronted suites in northern Serengeti's Wogakurya Hills, overlooking a Great Migration path.

How to choose the right Serengeti National Park safari lodge? 

As the World's Leading Safari Company, we're serious about looking for only the very best our continent offers. And, of course, that means experiencing it first-hand! We've scoured every nook and cranny of Africa to handpick the best luxury accommodation, experiences, and more. Therefore, when looking for the best luxury Serengeti safari lodges, you can leave it in our hands. 

The Serengeti is massive, measuring around 14,750 square kilometres (approximately 5,695 square miles) in size. It consists of different regions, namely Central, Eastern, Northern and Western Serengeti and the Grumeti Reserves.

The Great Migration moves in a clockwise direction across these regions and into the neighbouring country, Kenya. So location and timing are key if you want to witness the Great Migration! But don't worry, we know the Serengeti inside out and can recommend the best times to visit and which Serengeti luxury safari lodges to stay at. 

Expect only the best on luxury safaris in the Serengeti

From the expected high thread count bedding to private plunge pools overlooking wildlife, world-class wellness and spa treatments, fine dining, and the most hands-on personalised service you've ever experienced, luxury safari lodges in the Serengeti National Park will exceed even the most discerning traveller's expectations. 

Want to sip your morning coffee on a hot air balloon as you glide high above the Serengeti plains?

Or, does clinking glasses of bubbly on a bush picnic in the middle of the wide-open rolling landscapes sound like a dream? All this and more is possible if you stay at one of the top Serengeti luxury safari lodges.

Wildlife wonders in the Serengeti

The Serengeti National Park is quite literally packed with a wide variety of wildlife species. Proclaimed as a national park back in 1951, it was later recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981. 

As a world-famous Big 5 safari destination, it's home to over 2 million ungulates, 1,000 leopards, 550 cheetahs, 4,000 lions, and about 500 bird species. So, as you can only imagine, safaris in the Serengeti are nothing short of spectacular! 

Other animals you can look forward to include plenty of giraffes, hippos, crocodiles, hyenas, and many more. Looking for animals is an easy job, and they congregate in astounding numbers – especially when the Great Migration is moving through the Serengeti! And if you stay at the right luxury safari lodges in the Serengeti National Park at the right time, you can get a front-row seat to watch all the action unfold.
