We recently spent 2 nights at the Serena Ngorongoro Lodge. It's quite a large lodge and an older property; however, we enjoyed our stay and found the room very comfortable, service and food very good, and the view from our terrace outstanding.
All amenities are provided, including a hairdryer, and the room is large, quiet, and comfortable. Each night entertainment is provided in the large lounge area and there are plenty of tables available to sit, watch, listen, and have a drink and snacks.
The upstairs dining room has excellent views of the crater and the food is both buffet and by individual order. We were very satisfied with the food---something for everyone. The breakfast buffet even includes champagne should you want to indulge prior to a game drive. The number of offerings was large and no one should go away from any meal hungry.
The location was excellent and was close to the road into the crater---a place not to be missed on safari.
Yes, some updating would be nice, in terms of decor, but that's not why you're here. The lodge is clean, comfortable, in a great location, has good service good, food, a friendly helpful staff, and provides a nice place to stay while in the Ngorongoro area.
- 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
