Location is perfect had to see animals from my balcony. Food was very tasty and delicious i don't remember the chef but he was very kind and very helpful. Their staff are very helpful and understanding for their customer service i rate than 5/5. At night you can not walk alone you need a guard to escort till at your room. Lastly I would suggest about swimming pool it is very dirty you need to clean up. But overall everything is perfect.

Ngorogoro is a world heritage site, it is an unbelievable area where the animals that reside there rarely leave that crater. They have their very own private jungle. The beauty of this place is how lush and green it is. The Serena Lodge is located in a beautiful tip of the crater, so you can look into the crater in the morning and almost be above the clouds ! At Serengeti , we also stayed at the Serena Lodge. The accommodation is separate villas, each block has 3 apartments and after 7pm guests have to be escorted to and fro as wild life can wander in quite easily. Seeing the big 5, was just amazing, driving for up to an hour or longer then suddenly coming across these wild animals, who seem quite at home with these land cruisers going by or stopping to view them. Our trip was arranged by Aruna and Mary of Safarini tours and safaris company. They looked after us through out the trip and were able to keep us informed on the outside world during this coronavirus stage. They met us on arrival in Arusha and again at departure. We would definitely use this company again as they are based in Arusha and have all the current information of animal viewing etc.
