This was my first stay at a more upmarket lodge and until now I hadn't realised that there could really be much of a difference between that and a city hotel. Ngare Sero really showed me that a beautiful place to stay can be all you need for a relaxing yet stimulating break away.
The food was expertly prepared and the ingredients were fresh, local and of the highest quality. I can't remember a more enjoyable breakfast; smoked trout eggs benedict, fresh tropical juice, home baked brown bread and just-baked granola and yoghurt with gallons of delicious strong coffee grown from Kili (which sits just above the trees) is my idea of heaven. The food was only topped by the view of dozens of monkeys and hornbills dancing around on the fruit trees just next to the veranda enjoying their own morning meals.
My thanks to Tim and Katya for a thoroughly enjoyable couple of days, will certainly be back.

Here you can spend the days amid nature, watching the changing colors of the Kilimanjaro glaciers while sipping drinks on the verandah or hiking in the forest inhabited by colobus and Sykes monkeys as well as hundreds of small animal and bird species.
