Set in thick vegetation, Ngorongoro Serena Lodge is perched on one of the best positions of the western crater rim, just 8km from the descent road.
Built from dark river boulders, the creeper-clad, clustered buildings are linked by rope-lashed timber walkways.
In the cavernous, split-level main lodge, you will find flaming wall lanterns, intricately carved artefacts and a mesmerising central log fire. Flanking it, the double-storey wings house 75 rooms, the upper level with balcony and on the lower floor, a private terrace, both with panoramic vistas. Rooms are airconditioned and spacious enough to accommodate families.
The exquisite views and glorious sunrises are one of the rewards of a stay at this popular lodge.
