Stay at Ngorongoro Serena Lodge, Ngorongoro Crater
Whilst large, the Serena Hotel is very comfortable and has consistently good standards of food and service. It is an ideal base from which to explore the crater.
Ngorongoro Serena Lodge, Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
The Ngorongoro Serena Lodge stands on the lip of the crater with far reaching views. It is a modern but comfortable hotel with excellent staff, good food and comfortable rooms.
The main lodge houses a dining room, living room and bar and lovely sunset terrace where drinks and canapés are served each evening. There is a curio shop, on site masseurs and lots of very friendly staff to ensure your stay is comfortable.
The Serena has 75 rooms stretched out along the crater rim. Each room is spacious and has a sunny veranda with lovely views. There are en-suite bathrooms and a few thoughtful touches such as complimentary snacks (always good after a long game drive). With a good position not far from the access roads to the crater we recommend it for a few nights stay.
