Four Seasons has launched a new luxury hotel and spa - Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti - in the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.
The property features 77 guest rooms, including 12 suites with plunge pools and five freestanding villas with private swimming pools.
The resort spa has been built around an outdoor infinity pool overlooking an active watering hole, where guests can watch elephants gather to drink.
There are six freestanding treatment pavilions. All the villas are suited for single or couples treatments and some pavilions house outdoor bathtubs.
Treatments at the spa are Serengeti-inspired and incorporate local plants, minerals and healing rituals.
A 775sq ft (72sq m) fitness centre is also on offer, housing a range of free weights and CV equipment.
Dining options at the hotel include traditional cuisine at Boma Grill, African inspired Kula's Restaurant and Maji Bar serving with an emphasis on organic dishes.
Other facilities include a 24-hour business centre, a discovery centre and Kilana kids club.
The Lodge is the first Four Seasons in Sub-Saharan Africa and marks the introduction of the brand to the region with two additional properties planned in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and an exclusive beach resort on the island of Zanzibar.
