The river-stone ivy-covered walls of the Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge blend into the surrounding landscape in a spectacular triumph of eco-architecture elegantly carved into the Southern rim of Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater. The luxurious African village inspired accommodation offers sublime secluded luxury and opens up to peer out over the breathtaking oasis of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in a dream safari setting.
The 74 sumptuous guest rooms are simply and elegantly adorned with traditional Maasai sculptures embossed leather headboards and cultural artifacts creating an unforgettably African atmosphere.
Private rock enclosed terraces are perfectly positioned to provide breathtaking endless views of the game rich plains and forests of the Ngorongoro Crater.
The main lodge combines world-class luxury, timeless volcanic splendor and traditional Tanzanian ethnic style to rival the spectacular natural surrounds of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
The sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere of the 2 tier split-level dining and bar area is decorated in a tribute to the prehistoric caves situated nearby. Full-length walls of glass look out onto the constantly changing vistas below and offer a panorama of far-reaching views and unique game viewing opportunities.
Game drives in open top 4×4 vehicles, guided safari walks and action adventure hikes are led by expert rangers. The Ngorongoro Crater is renowned for its rich and diverse species of bird and wildlife and the Big 5 are often spotted on a single game drive safari. Alternatively enjoy a full herbal massage at the spa or marvel at the lilac streaked sunrise and indigo studded evening sky whilst sipping on a cocktail.
Other activities include historical and cultural tours of the Olduvai Gorge and local Maasai Villages or picnic lunch, breakfasts and dinners at a private picnic spot on the Ngorongoro Crater floor.
