The situation and the view of this lodge is just in one word wow! It is build to attract little attention and is one with the nature around. Rooms are good, the beds (matrasses) too hard. The balcony we had extends the beautiful view. The food was good,but not great. What you would expect of a mass hotel. (However when we were there, you can still see the corona effect in occupancy) the staff extremely friendly. We can recommend the safari hike around the lodge of 2-3 hours with a ranger!
Excellent lodge. Room was clean and Comfortable, view was stunning. Our room had a baloney that was great to relax and enjoy the view. Comfortable bath robes. Bar was nice, large assortment of drinks and beers! Dinner was great- good selection. We had an early departure so we got breakfast boxes to go which were good- just needed to get our own coffee from the bar.
Fabulous view and excellent services
The rooms are very spacious and heated. Each room has a balcony overlooking Ngorongoro Crater, and the scenery is spectacular. Here, the driver/guide who accompanies you on safari benefits from a separate area from the tourists. The staff is great and the food is good. By the way, here I had for dinner the best beef steak so far.
Luxury on the Rim of the Caldera
This is a spectacular location on the lip of the volcano caldera. It is a hotel with all the amenities one would expect from a nice property. The location affords easy guided access into the bowl of the volcano where there are lots of animals - lions, elephants, hippos etc. It is a very different ecology compared to what we had seen in other parts of the Serengeti. Very lush jungles grow up and down the rim of the caldera and it is quite different from the savanna’s we had seen earlier. The view from our room was of the entire caldera and it was impressive. In the morning the clouds hang low or slip down the slope of the rim, just beautiful. The staff are competent and efficient. The dining staff are extra special and provided a delightful meal with great service and humor. The morning we were to depart, they arranged for us to have a bush breakfast, which was amazing. They set up a full kitchen with hot food of every variety you can think of for breakfast. A separate table was set for us all, and it looked fit for a king. We had champagne and juice while looking at the surrounding scene while Vervet monkeys and a variety of birds watched us. The staff, once again, outdid themselves. The entire experience was spectacular.
Another perfect Serena Lodge
As always the staff was super attentive and met our every need. Views of the crater from every vantage point. We can't say enough good things about every aspect of our stays with Serena Lodges. The hot water bottles tucked in the sheets at night were a special treat!
