The Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge is right on the edge of a crater and offers endless views of the crater below. The boulder-built buildings are linked by rope-lashed timber walkways that skirt the roots of ancient, liana-hung trees. You can visit a selection of authentic Maasai villages, all of which belong to the national Cultural Tourism Program, as well as Maasai homesteads, traditional cattle markets and women's handicraft groups. The lodge made the Conde Nast Traveler Gold List 2007.
The Maasai-inspired, split-level dining and bar area features a two-tier wall of windows looking down on to the crater, a traditional circular fireside meeting area, and a motif of massive 'prehistoric' cave paintings, stone-studded walls, Maasai spears and blazing jewel-hued wall lamps. The menu includes traditional Maasai fare, long-time safari favorites and international dishes.
Beauty treatments, massage and hairdressing are all available.
Serena Safaris operate a fleet of safari-adapted Land Cruisers. Each tour is led by an experienced guide. Picnics, mineral water, cool boxes and bush libraries are also provided.
