Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge

Discover Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge

Ngorongoro Serena Lodge is a large yet comfortable hotel built onto the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. Its size and decor may mean that it lacks the ambience or style of other lodges but it makes up for this by providing the most magnificent views of the Crater and a convenient access for game drives.

The lodge has 75 rooms in total including a suite, twin, double and triple rooms and connecting rooms making it popular with families. Each of the rooms enjoys uninterrupted views over the Crater from individual rock-enclosed balconies.
The split-level rock-built dining and bar area features a wall of windows looking down on to the constantly changing vistas of the crater. The menu choices include traditional Maasai fare as well as international cuisine with the opportunity to dine al fresco from a safari breakfast under an Acacia grove to a BBQ lunch by a hippo-filled pool. A rim-flow swimming pool provides a welcome cool down during the day.
