Tanzania Lodging


Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge

Set in lush gardens amid forest and crystal-clear waters on the slopes of Mount Meru, Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge is a wonderful place to relax and simmer in the immense beauty of East Africa. Just 30 minutes from Kilimanjaro International Airport and Arusha town center, Ngare Sero is the ideal location to spend the day amid nature, watching the changing colors of the Kilimanjaro glaciers while sipping drinks on the verandah.

Originally built in 1905, the main house of the lodge still retains many of its original features and ornamental design with long colonial verandas stretching across the front of the house; the perfect spot to sit and watch the lake, monkeys, forest, and enjoy the grandeur of Mount Kilimanjaro. Furnished with stone benches and leather cushions, the lodge provides modern comforts amid antiques commemorating Tanzania’s German colonial past.


Asilia Highlands Camp

The Highlands redefines the Ngorongoro experience. Set on the edge of the mountain forest hugging the Olmoti volcano to the north of Ngorongoro Crater, The Highlands strikes a perfect balance between a true wilderness experience and a high-style, contemporary escape. Experience the highlands of the wild Ngorongoro Conservation Area surrounding camp, home to leopard, buffalo and elephant. The famous Ngorongoro Crater is easily accessible from camp, while the setting ensures maximum privacy, a rich adventure and a range of activities not possible elsewhere in Ngorongoro.

Serian’s Serengeti is a mobile camp, and from mid-December to May, the camp sets up on the southernmost extreme of the Serengeti’s short grass plains: prime position to spectate the wildebeest birthing season.
