Arusha Serena Hotel, Resort & Spa
The lodge’s ambience is warmly reminiscent of our origins as a colonial era coffee farm, beginning with the welcoming stone-built reception area and extending to cottage-style rooms neatly arranged among landscaped lawns and the colorful banks of Bougainvillea.
Each of the 42 meticulously crafted guest rooms has been inspired by our heritage and natural splendor, welcoming guests to experience the romance and simplicity of a 1920s lakeside retreat. Designed in the manner of a stone cottage, all accommodations are clustered around a village square adorned with beautifully tended lawns and extensive gardens. In warm hues of red and crisp shades of white, rooms feature classic country house design touches like tile floors, leaded windows and French doors giving way to garden and lake views.
Modern amenities like complimentary Internet and flat-screen televisions with cable and satellite channels along with personalized touches like ceiling fans and comfortable robes enhance the guest experience.

Enjoy early morning breakfast the depart with packed lunch to Ngorongoro. Descend some 610 metres into the Ngorongoro Crater floor for game viewing drives. The 20km diameter crater floor has one of the highest wildlife per service area concentration. In the crater floor are Burchell’s zebras, leopard, cheetah, cape buffalo, water bucks, hartebeests, spotted hyenas, savannah elephant among others. There are no giraffes I the crater due to the short shrubs that pose a challenge to the giraffes feeding. We later drive up the crater floor to the Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge for check-in, dinner and overnight.
Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge
Nestled high above the plains into the Crater’s jagged rim, cloaked in river stone and indigenous vines, Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge is barely visible to the naked eye. Framed by arched stone passages and timbered decks, its torch-lit walls are adorned with stylized cave paintings. At the stone heart of the lodge burns a glowing fire, which is kept constantly alight.
All the 75 rooms are looped around the Crater rim. Each has its own rock-enclosed balcony, and all enjoy completely uninterrupted views of the volcanic amphitheatre far below. At Ngorongoro Serena lodge one feels as ancient as the Crater itself, yet no modern comfort has been spared in an effort to bring you the best safari adventure in Africa and one of the most unique travel experiences in the world.

Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge
This is an award-winning gem of a hotel in one of the most beautiful settings in Tanzania. Seamlessly blended high into an acacia-lined ridge, the African-style lodge and infinity pool offer panoramic views across the Serengeti’s vast, endless grasslands, where lions and cheetahs stalk their prey and massive migrating wildebeest herds darken the landscape in a relentless search for fresh grazing grounds.
The 65 guest rooms and one suite are housed in clusters of traditional domed “rondavels” arranged around the lodge’s stunning infinity pool. Set high on a hill with the rolling plains below forming a natural amphitheatre, your room offers a ringside seat for the greatest show on earth, the annual migration of the wildebeest. Sweeping views, traditional stone-built and thatched architecture and private balconies immerse you in the stunning beauty and solitude of Serengeti National Park like no other accommodation can.
Decorated in warm earth tones punctuated by pops of brightly colored fabrics and ornate Makonde carvings on the walls, all rooms feature their own private entrance, hand-made wood furniture, spacious bedrooms and natural stone bathrooms. Amenities like complimentary wireless Internet and 24-hour room service along with personalized touches like standing/table fans and comfortable robes enhance the guest experience.
