Ngorongoro Crater


Ngorongoro Serena Lodge Location Map

The unique Ngorongoro Serena Lodge clings to the rim of the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, the largest and most perfect volcanic crater in the world.

Long and low, the lodge is built from local river stone and camouflaged with indigenous vines. Designed to blend completely into the landscape, it is entirely invisible from the floor of the crater some 600 metres below.

Deep within the crater, some 25,000 large mammals wander the plains, lakes and forests, including bull elephants, rhinos and lions.

Guests staying at the Ngorongoro Serena Lodge can enjoy a variety of activities, including daily game drives down into the crater, sundowner drinks on the rim of the crater, picnic lunches, early morning breakfasts in the crater itself, guided nature walks around the crater rim, and nightly Maasai dancing.

Visits to local Maasai villages and cattle markets can also be arranged.

Each of the 75 rock-built rooms are strung around the crater rim. Each has its own rock-enclosed balcony, and all enjoy completely uninterrupted views of the volcanic amphitheatre far below. The rooms feature brass lamps, embossed leather headboards, wildwood mirrors, Maasai carvings and stylised prehistoric cave paintings.

The main lodge areas are linked by arched stone passages and timbered decks. The lodge walls are decorated with stylized prehistoric cave paintings and lit by flaring torches, and at the heart of the lodge there is a glowing fire, which is kept constantly alight.
