"Great views down onto the Crater floor are the reason to travel here in my opinion, but I've always struggled with the commercial approach of the Serena chain."


This lodge is part of the Serena hotel chain and is much the most impressive of the three Serena hotels in the area, combining a great design with a magnificent location. It is a good place to stay for families and those who prefer this sort of hotel to a more typical safari camp.


Serena's Ngorongoro Safari Lodge sits on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater with spectacular views of the Crater below. Long and low, it has been cleverly designed to tone in with the landscape, using local stone from the river, and camouflaged with indigenous creepers.


It is modelled on a nearby prehistoric site. The 75 rooms are built out of rock along the crater rim and each has a balcony giving absolutely stunning views out over the volcanic crater below. The buildings are linked by arched stone passages, while the walls are decorated with prehistoric cave paintings. A permanent fire glows in the rock dining room and flares light the way between the rooms. This is a truly unique lodge.

**For families with children under the age of 6 years, we always request a ground floor room or a room without a balcony for safety reasons. If you stay here with us, please ensure this is what you are given.**


  • Activities here include daily game drives, where you'll descend to the Crater floor, guided nature walks around the rim and a visit to Maasai village and marketplace.

*This property is unfenced and located in a wildlife area, so large and potentially dangerous animals do pass through. If you opt to stay here, always be alert when walking around the camp and request for a member of staff to escort you if you have any concerns. Any guest is escorted after dark as a matter of course.
