Arusha camps - Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge

Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge

Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge is an old german colonial farmhouse in the foothills above Usa River (about 25 minutes from Kilimanjaro Aiport). It has a stunning location, beautifully kept gardens a dreamy lake with colobus cavorting at its edges and a great view of Mt Kilimanjaro.

This is so nearly the most idyllic country lodge where you could happily while away a few lazy days before or after a safari. Ngaresero has quite a bit of style and the rooms are comfortable, although rather utilitarian in an expensive sort of way.

The food varies from fabulous to OK. There is a lovely swimming pool, croquet lawn and from time to time there are yoga courses run from here. All being well there are opportunities to walk through the local villages in the foothills of Mount Meru, do short rides or fish for trout in the lake.

The main thing to be aware of is that things can be slightly unpredictable here. To some people this is part of the charm of staying here - it's the opposite of the "chain hotel" experience - and, if you're fairly laid back this is a good choice.

However, if you prefer a more tightly run ship there might be other places in or around Arusha that'll suit you better. Ngaresero is a good one night option if you're happy to enjoy the beautiful location and simply take things as they come.
