After a meeting in Cape Town five couples from Europe, North America and one from Cape Town came together for a once in a lifetime experience at Serondella. The total experience could not have been better. First one comes to see the animals, and see them we did. We sat in the bush in our land rover surrounded by a herd of elephants -- giant females to small babies. We also spend one and a half hour tracking a young male leopard thru the bush as he eventually tried to catch an impala, only to lose. What a shame! You name it and we saw it in the twice daily three hour drives thru the bush. To make this happen one needs great support staff and here Serondella was amazing. Charel seemed to know everything about the animals. He was an expert on birds, could recite tale after tale about our four footed friends as well. Combined with Jefferey our tracker and all was possible, The reserve is crisscrossed by a series of dirt roads and it was amazing to see Charel leave the road and head into the bush, pushing over small trees with the Land Rover -- anything to make sure we saw the animal we were tracking.
Back at the Lodge all was of an equal character. Mich managed a great shop, the food was supreme, and Truth at the bar was as pleasant as could be hoped for. Let me return to the food the chef was a genius! Nothing else needs to be said.
Finally there were the separate rooms -- comfortable, clean, and quiet.
This is a unique destination to be savored. If this type of trip that tickles your fancy Serondella is the place to go.
