Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts recently announced a long-term management agreement with the owners of Bilila Lodge, a resort in the Serengeti National Park, and is now operating the property, which will be renovated and renamed Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti, Tanzania.

This property, set to open fall of this year, will be the first of the brand’s sub-Saharan expansion. Additional properties include a luxury-tented safari camp in the Ngorongoro conservation area and an exclusive beach resort on the island of Zanzibar.

“The responsibility of taking over such as irreplaceable asset within the Serengeti National Park is one that we take very seriously. This is an extremely rare opportunity for Four Seasons in that no other property of this size or scale exists, or is likely to ever be developed again in the park. With the future development in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and on the island of Zanzibar, Four Seasons will offer some of the finest holiday experiences in Tanzania,” said Scott Woroch, executive vice president of world-wide development at Four Seasons.

Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti is located in central Serengeti, entirely within the park. The property boasts 60 rooms, 12 suites and five villas, all of which have direct views over the Serengeti. Designed with contemporary African architecture sympathetic to the natural landscape, the centerpiece is a two-story great house, including several dining options with indoor and outdoor seating, a spa and an infinity-edge swimming pool overlooking an active watering hole. Guests have the opportunity to witness nature at its best, day and night, including a herd of nearly 30 elephants that are frequent visitors. Elevated wooden walkways connect the great house to guest rooms, free-standing villas and the spa complex.

As with the company’s award-winning Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle in Thailand, Four Seasons in Tanzania will offer guests opportunities to get close to wildlife in a safe and ecologically responsible environment while still being pampered in a lodge set amid unspoiled wilderness.
