Set deep in the Serengeti is a number of Four Seasons lodges with close-up, on-the-ground views into the plains and wildlife that roam the park. One of the best spots for wildlife-watching can be found when doing a few laps in the open-air pool which overlooks a watering hole. Here, you’re likely to come across elephants and baboons as they gather for respite from the day’s sun. Just make sure you have the camera ready.
