Mbali Mbali Soroi

It’s hard to surpass the experience being on safari in the famed Serengeti National Park, but the views from this wonderfully sited lodge perched above the plains run it very close. Thankfully you have plenty of time to enjoy both during your stay at Mbali Mbali Soroi. 

Mbali Mbali Soroi Serengeti sits atop a ridge ensuring sweeping views across the Musabi plains. It is a 50 minute drive of the Seronera airstrip. The central building contains the lounge, library and dining area, all under shade and pleasantly cool. Outside there’s a large deck arranged over three levels with areas for relaxing, al fresco dining, a firepit and an inviting infinity pool with a sundeck equipped with loungers and parasols.

A typical day begins with an early breakfast followed by a 4×4 safari in the national park, returning to the lodge for lunch. This is followed by leisure time until tea and the late afternoon game drive, possibly including sundowner drinks. You are back in time to shower and change for dinner. Full day game drives with a packed lunch can also be arranged. Game viewing is excellent all year but if you’re here between late April and mid-July you should witness the annual migration which is sure to add some thrills to your safari.    

Rooms and suites are constructed from hardwood with thatched roofs. Spacious, they have large windows making them light inside and showcasing the surrounding scenery. They are arranged among acacia trees and are spaced apart so you are not overlooked as you enjoy an outdoor shower or when resting on your veranda. Staff drive golf buggies to help you get from your room to the main area in comfort and safety.

Mbali Mbali Soroi used to be called Soroi Serengeti Lodge.

Times to Go

The lodge is open al year and Serengeti provides wonderful wildlife watching year round. The annual migration passes this area from late April to mid-July each year for added excitement.
