Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts has signed a long-term management agreement with the owners of the Bilila Lodge resort in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, East Africa.
Four Seasons is already operating the property, which has 62 rooms, 12 suites and four villas; after an upgrade, the resort will be renamed the Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti in autumn this year. The resort was previously operated by Kempinski Hotels.
Four Seasons also has two more properties for Tanzania already planned: a tented safari camp in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a beach resort on the island of Zanzibar.
“We have long wanted to expand into Sub-Saharan Africa and offer new outdoor adventure experiences to our guests,” said Kathleen Taylor, the group’s president and chief executive officer. “We’re thrilled to have an outstanding location and partners who share our vision to create a world class lodge like no other in the heart of Africa’s finest Safari region,” she added.
