Accommodations at Four Seasons Safari Lodge (Bilila Lodge Kempinski) consist of 72 light, airy and spacious suites located in two wings which sweep to the left and right of the central lodge building. Each arc-shaped building graciously follows the natural contours of the land. With their savannah colored walls, thatched roofs and locally sourced and crafted stone walls, each building blends seamlessly into the landscape. To the far right of the property you can find the 2 family chalets, one-bedroom villas and a sumptuous Presidential Villa rightfully claiming to be the finest in Tanzania .
Each of the 72 well-appointed suites is defined within one of two categories: Savanna or Deluxe Room (ground floor) and Horizon or Club Room (second floor). The suites comprise a sleeping area with an exceptionally comfortable hand-crafted king-sized four poster bed (twin also available), luxurious linens and billowing mosquito nets. Two plush chairs with small table at the base of the bed offer unimpeded views through the floor-to-ceiling glass doors that give way to screen doors. Step through the screen doors to your private teak deck with fabulously comfortable chairs and your own telescope for viewing the wildlife and ethereal beauty of Banagi Hill and splendid Serengeti plains beyond.
To the one side of the bed is a large flat screen satellite TV with with over 50 satellite TV and radio channels, a DVD with multi media player and an elegant writing desk with lamp and compact consol offering power outlets, an adapter plug for your electronic devices and a complimentary internet port.

Immediately in front of the dressing area is a spectacular bathroom with free standing tub offering exceptional views of the Serengeti. The separate shower is spacious with beautiful stone walls and gleaming fixtures including a rain shower. The vanity has a marble counter top with twin basins overlooked by a six foot high mirror with lighting intensity options. There is a separate plumbed loo.
