Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge


Amazing setting on the edge of Ngorongoro Crater

Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater is a magnificent wildlife arena, filled to the brim with some of Africa’s most iconic animal species. Clinging to the rim of this ancient caldera is Ngorongoro Serena Lodge—a regular recipient of international awards and an ideal place to rest one’s head while exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site adjacent to the Serengeti.

The Ngorongoro Crater and larger conservation area is home to approximately 25,000 large mammal species who wander the crater floor’s unique terrain of lakes, forest, and grassland. Often lauded as ‘the land that time forgot’, expect to see impressive numbers of rhino, elephant, and lion. The Serengeti—home to the Great Migration; and Olduvai Gorge, once home to the first early human species—lies adjacent to the Ngorongoro Crater.

Timbered decks link the lodge’s rooms and common areas. Each room boasts a rock-enclosed balcony and uninterrupted views of the wildlife arena below, while the main lodge has extensive viewing decks. Visit a Maasai village and marketplace, wander along the crater rim on guided nature walks, and venture along its surface on daily game drives.
