Project Description


Serengeti Safari Lodge was established in 1984 by well-known Big 5 Professional Hunter and outfitter Japie Nel.

Serengeti Safari Lodge has all the amenities that you will find in small luxury Hotel and caters for the most distinguished hunters of the world. The lodge was developed in the heart of Serengeti owned by Safari Conservancy which is surrounded by prime game concession areas. The Safari Conservancy is located 3,5 hours’ drive north of Pretoria in the Limpopo province of South Africa. After a good day’s hunting we will end the day with a sundowner either in the bush or at “Shawu bar”. African cuisine will be served either around the roaring fire at “Xhamaros Boma” or in the warm atmosphere of the lodges’ dining room.
