Leading international travel publication, Travel + Leisure has recently announced the best of the best in travel!  The annual survey amongst their global readership has been audited and reveals the top destinations, hotels, airlines, cruise liners, spas and safari outfitters.  This year, the coveted Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards named three of Serena Hotels’ safari lodges in the Top 20 top lodges and resorts in Africa and the Middle East. 

  • Honoured with 6th place in Africa and Middle East, Kirawira Luxury Tented Camp does not fail to exceed expectations as one of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World.  Situated in the unspoilt Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, the lodge is in immediate proximity to the western corridor of the park; scene of the annual migration of wildebeest herds and their attendant predators.  Kirawira Luxury Tented Camp, as one of the most exclusive of the Serena Group’s many safari venues, offers the epitome of classic ‘Out of Africa’ safari camp luxury.  Kirawira Luxury Tented Camp was also voted in at 15th place in the Travel + Leisure Top 100 Hotels Overall.

Returning to the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards; Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge and Mara Serena Safari Lodge come in at 18th and 19th place respectively.  While Mara Serena Safari Lodge lies in the Maasai Mara National Reserve of Kenya- a northern continuation of the Serengeti also famous for its prolific wildlife, Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge is set against the magnificent backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro in the heart of the national park.   

  • Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge’s unique positioning in the heart of the national park, sees it placed near a series of emerald green swamps, fed by the melting snows of Kilimanjaro.  These are the only sources of water in the otherwise starkly beautiful yet arid park which attract vast herds of elephant, hippos, buffalos and other game roaming the plains. 
  • Mara Serena Safari Lodge on the other hand is hidden in the bush cloaked hills of The Mara, commanding spectacular views of Africa’s dramatic wildlife arenas and the famous Mara River.  Styled to mirror the circular motif of a traditional Maasai Mara Manyatta, the lodge blends international sophistication with raw African beauty. 

Serena Hotels was recently recognized by the Africa Business Awards for making outstanding contribution to the development of the continent, the economic aspirations of its citizens, the transformation of Africa’s image in international markets by branding the six destinations in which it operates as attractive tourism destinations and for providing the highest standards of service and product whilst operating in a sensitive manner towards monitoring the interests of the local population including their traditions, culture and future development.  Being recognized by Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards is confirmation of Serena’s leadership in this arena.
