The final Serena lodge on our safari, and it did not disappoint. We had a fantastic room overlooking the amazing crater, with no need to use the curtains as the room was not overlooked. We would even spot elephants on the crater floor from our balcony!
Again we were treated well with fruit on our arrival, and lots of entertainment with a nature walk, acrobatics and a slide show of the area.
The service on our first night at dinner was slow, but the food was incredible when it arrived. The second night we had a different waitress and there were less customers, so service and food were both perfect!
This was my favourite of the 4 Serena Lodges that we stayed at, but I would add that the pictures on the Serena Lodge website may not do this hotel justice as it looks dated in them and I do not feel that this is the case - I will try to put some others up!
- 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
