This unique lodge clings to the rim of the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, the largest and most perfect volcanic crater on Earth. Long and low, the lodge is built from local river stone and camouflaged with indigenous vines. Designed to blend completely into the landscape, it is entirely invisible from the floor of the Crater 600 meters below.

The interiors of Ngorongoro Serena Lodge are a mixture of stone and wood with bushman paintings and African artifacts adorning the walls. The dining room at this Tanzania lodge has large panoramic windows giving an incredible view over the Ngorongoro Crater.
