Serondella Game Lodge

Serondella Lodge, deep in the private Thornybush Game Reserve bordering the Kruger National Park is one of the country's great tracts of untamed game-viewing. The lodge is ideally situated right in front of the Inyoni Pan, where Kingfishers dive and game come to quench their thirst. The pan is floodlit at night and you will have the opportunity to take some spectacular photographs or videos from the wide wooden deck. Serondella means 'the place of the elephants' which are the habitual patrons to the lodge's two flanking waterholes.
