About Seringa Lodge

Seringa Lodge is situated on the outskirts of a quaint South African town called White River, in the province of Mpumalanga. With its easy access to many places of interest, the lodge is the perfect home base for exploring the many great sites of the area. This lovely old thatched farmhouse is set in a ten hectares of peaceful garden and with a magnificent view of the Legogote Mountain “The Lion Head”.

Seringa lodge is known for its fine cuisine. Cecilia is from Sweden and did her professional chef training in America and thereafter worked at numerous well-known restaurants in the USA, Sweden and South Africa. In 1999 Cecilia was offered a position as the Catering and Camp Manager in one of the most exclusive camps in Botswana. In 2004 Roger and Cecilia opened Seringa Lodge.

Our breakfasts and dinners are guaranteed to delight the most refined palate. Garden fresh vegetables and fruit are used as much as possible.

The meals can be enjoyed either in the tastefully decorated dining area, the beautiful garden or in the traditional African Boma.

This was our second visit to Seringa Lodge, we would definitely recommend the lodge. Rooms and accommodation were excellent as was the service and meals.

I live just minutes from Seringa Lodge, however, I needed a weekend away from the noise and chatter that I hear every day where I normally live. Seringa Lodge was the perfect place to be. Breakfast was amazing and the attentiveness of the staff was unmatched to any place I've ever stayed. I had to leave by 7:00 my last morning there and Celcia and Neli still had me breakfast ready to go at 6:30. I would definitely stay here again!

We were delighted with every aspect of Seringa Lodge; the rooms, gardens, location and especially the hosts, Celia and Roger. We had a wonderful evening meal, breakfasts were excellent, all served in a perfect setting. Roger gave us some great advice for our trip into Kruger, and we would certainly recommend Seringa Lodge to anyone looking for a great place to stay in the White River area.

Seringa Lodge was fabulous, we felt so at home, all the comforts you can ask for.Thanks to Cecelia for letting us come in earlier. Our stay was far too short.We'll most definitely be back for another adventure weekend in Hazyview and Sabie.
