A luxury safari sanctuary in the heart of the wild. Serengeti Explorer is safari reimagined. Set in one of the worlds most iconic wildlife ecosystems, the property introduces a new style of safari lodge where the expression of space, freedom and the great outdoors meets with adventure. But it’s not just a lodge – it’s a luxury property with a host of contextual experiences to make the safari adventure even more exciting and compelling. This reimagined lodge sits high up on the Nyaboro Hills overlooking the endless plains for which the Serengeti is famed. It is one of the most central yet private settings in the Serengeti, the perfect place to see and access the Great Migration as it makes its annual pilgrimage.
Serengeti Explorer’s restaurants and bars are positioned to afford a variety of breathtaking views over the vast Serengeti plains. With material simplicity in mind and a refined modern aesthetic, the open-air lounge areas allow for a seamless flow from inside to the great outdoors.
The extensive wine cellar and private Chef’s table adds a new indulgent element to the Explorer culinary experience. The alfresco Boma restaurant plays up to all the senses, bringing you closer to nature as you dine under the shimmering Serengeti sky.
Not just an accommodation experience in the African wilderness but so much more: tune your photographic skills at our new creative studio or relax under the Serengeti skies for an early evening movie in our outdoor silent cinema or gaze at the night sky through our refractor telescope on a purpose built star gazing deck or simply keep mind, body and soul inspired and refreshed – Serengeti Explorer has so much to offer.
Sustainable construction and community empowerment were the guiding principles behind the design of this luxury lodge.
Repurposed stones & materials from the demolition of the existing structure were used to create the dry-stack external walls and room floors, whilst reintroducing local build methods and honing community skills.
Decorative items and lighting fixtures have been manufactured using recycled materials by our social enterprise, Shanga.
The lodge will also support a number of conservation and community initiatives in the region through our philanthropic arm, Land & Life.
