    Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge

    Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

    The impressive stone structure of the Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge is built into the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater itself, not far from the Olduvai Gorge. Great care was taken to ensure that it would blend seamlessly into its surroundings so as to take nothing away from the stunning natural beauty of the area and, as it is covered with creepers and other vegetation, it is virtually invisible from the floor of the crater. The attractively furnished, comfortable guest rooms have private terraces affording wonderful views of the crater below. Meals are taken in the restaurant, with its log fire and attractive adornments. The well-traveled readers of both Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler consider the Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge to be among the 500 best hotels in the world.
