For almost two decades Elewana has been delivering unforgettable experiences through its collection of 16 luxury properties across East Africa. The new Explorer by Elewana collection of upscale safari lodges will cater to a wider audience through a more moderate price point as well as an increased range of activities on property. The first lodge, Serengeti Explorer, is scheduled to open in March 2024, Ngorongoro Explorer will follow later in that year, and Tarangire Explorer is scheduled to open in 2025.
Serengeti Explorer is exemplified through its remarkable location. Sat high up on the Nyaboro Hills, the views stretch for miles across the iconic plains of the Serengeti, whilst its central, yet private location makes it the perfect hub, from which to see the Great Migration. Guests will have access to one of the world’s most iconic wildlife ecosystems, where space, freedom and the great outdoors meet thrilling adventure.
There will be a wide selection of dining options ranging from a chef’s table located within an extensive wine cellar with an on-site sommelier, to a Boma restaurant offering a bush dinner of African and Swahili signature dishes under the Serengeti sky. In addition, a main restaurant, poolside bistro and bar and deli and coffee shop will all serve up a delicious array of dishes celebrating the farm-to-table culture.
A stargazing deck with on-site astronomy guide will allow guests to enjoy a galactic night safari under the sparkling African sky.
Karim Wissanji, Elewana’s Group Chairman & CEO comments: “The launch of Explorer by Elewana marks an exciting milestone for our group. This upscale safari lodge concept, set in the renowned wildlife-rich regions of Northern Tanzania, fills a unique niche by targeting the needs and price point of the mid-market safari guest. Explorer promises a range of immersive safari experiences within World Heritage-designated natural landscapes. Consistent with every Elewana property, Explorer will be characterised by exemplary service, remarkable wildlife encounters, and a deep connection to nature. Our commitment to conservation and community engagement, a cornerstone of our ethos, will continue to be at the heart of everything we do.”
Serengeti Explorer is built on the site of the previous Serengeti Sopa Lodge and reconstruction will not cause unnecessary disruption to the environment. The room count will be exactly the same, so as not to add additional population pressure to the fragile ecosystem. As with all Elewana properties, Serengeti Explorer will uphold the core purpose of expertly sharing the wonders of our natural world by providing responsible, authentic, life-affirming, luxury safari and adventure experiences.
