The coat is basically golden-yellow to buff, and extensively marked with black spots and stripes The spots show great variation in size. Melanistic servals are also known.Facial features include the brownish or greenish eyes, white whiskers on the snout and near the ears, ears as large as those of a domestic cat (but large relative to the size of the head) and black on the back with a white horizontal band in the middle, whitish chin, and spots and streaks on the cheeks and the forehead. Three to four black stripes run from the back of the head onto the shoulders, and then break into rows of spots. The white underbelly has dense and fluffy basal fur, and the soft guard hairs (the layer of fur protecting the basal fur) are 5–10 cm (2–4 in) long. Guard hairs are up to 3 cm (1 1⁄4 in) long on the neck, back and the flanks, and are merely 1 cm (1⁄2 in) long on the face.The closely set ears are black on the back with a horizontal white band;the ears can rotate up to 180 degrees independently of each other.The serval has a good sense of smell, hearing and vision.
The serval is similar to the sympatric caracal, but has a narrower spoor, a rounder skull, and lacks its prominent ear tufts. The African golden cat is darker, with different cranial features.It resembles the cheetah in its build and coat pattern, though not in size.The serval shares its adaptations to its marshy habitat with the jungle cat; both cats have large and sharp ears that help in locating the prey efficiently, and their long legs raise them above muddy ground and water.

The serval is a slender, medium-sized cat; it stands 54–62 centimetres (21–24 in) at the shoulder and weighs 8–18 kilograms (18–40 lb), but females tend to be lighter. The head-and-body length is typically between 67 and 100 centimetres (26 and 39 in). Males tend to be sturdier than females.Prominent characteristics include the small head, large ears, spotted and striped coat, long legs and a black-tipped tail that is around 30 centimetres (12 in) long. The serval has the longest legs of any cat relative to its body size, largely due to the greatly elongated metatarsal bones in the feet. The toes are elongated as well, and unusually mobile.
