We recently stayed at Ngoro Serena Lodge on our Tanzania safari. The rooms are nice and clean but not fancy. The bathrooms roomy. Each room has a view of the Ngorngoro Crater. We stayed here in the middle of our 10 day safari and it was a welcome change from the tented camps. While the tent camps are luxurious there is something to be said for unlimited hot water for your shower.
The view from the bar is beautiful. The bar prices are average for a place such as this,around $10 for cocktails, less for a glass of wine.US dollars are accepted.
The food here was disappointing. It was mediocre at best but then again it is a large, all inclusive facility and it 's hard to cook for the masses.All meals are buffet style. The desserts were a weak point.
Some of the other lodges at the crater are supposedly more luxurious but they do come with a luxurious price tag as well. Just remember, TIA ( this is Africa) and you will be fine. Unless you absolutley want to spend the big bucks, this a comfortable place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Perched on the jagged rim of the crater, wreathed in morning mist, camouflaged in river-stone and cloaked in indigenous creepers, the Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge is a triumph of ecological and architectural fusion. Sensitively constructed so as to take nothing from its environment whilst affording endless vistas over the heat-shimmering reaches of the crater below, the clustered boulder-built buildings of the Lodge hug the crater rim, linked by rope-lashed timber walkways that skirt the buttressed roots of ancient, liana-hung trees. ... more less
