          I'm pleased we chose Ngororgoro Serena for 2 nights--our balcony overlooking the Crater made the otherwise-ordinary hotel well worth the price. In addition, the close-in location meant our driver/guide could access sites in the Crater more easily--saving the 45 minute drive from outside the park.

          We stayed here for 2 nights, overlooking the crater with amazing views. There is game grazing around the lodge so it hard to believe you are in a lodge with other guests. Meals offered were good and staff friendly.
