When people say ‘Serengeti’, they’re often picturing the beating heart of the vast wilderness. The Seronera region is often known as ‘big cat country’ due to the larger numbers of leopards, lions, and cheetahs in the region.
Its central location makes it something of a crossroads for those heading west, south, or north – so it’s rare that your trip won’t include a Central Serengeti lodge or tented camp.
Budget Lodges in the Central Serengeti
As the most popular corner of the Serengeti with tourists, the Central Serengeti is serviced by the Seronera Campsite.
While this is definitely a rustic camping experience, there’s something to be said for sleeping out under the stars and experiencing Africa’s wilderness as countless explorers have before you.
All camping safaris with Shadows of Africa include camping equipment and the services of a private chef, so you’re not left to fend for yourselves!
Medium Lodges in the Central Serengeti
Seronera’s popularity means that it provides the broadest variety of accommodation options, with both tented and lodge facilities to be found in abundance.
