Property Description

Ideal Safari Base for Northern circuit Tanzania in a tranquil eco-lodge at the foothills of Mount Meru.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. The Lodge has been adapted from an early colonial farmhouse built in the early 20th century. Ngare Sero is one of the oldest family lodges in Arusha. It offers only 10 garden rooms, 1 main house suite and pool cottage with 2 bedrooms, and provides personal service for its residents since 1973. Here you can spend the days amid nature, watching the changing colors of the Kilimanjaro glaciers while sipping drinks on the verandah or hiking in the forest inhabited by colobus and Sykes monkeys as well as hundreds of small animal and bird species. Try swimming in the 30 meter pool or fly fishing in the cool waters of the clear lake, horse ride under the tree canopy or treat yourself to a massage in our Garden Spa after a long journey or an international flight.The Lodge is located only 30 minutes away from Kilimanjaro International Airport and Arusha town center, which makes it an ideal base for safaris. ACTIVITIES:Nature Walks - Bird watching – Swimming - Horse riding - Boating – Croquet - Trout Fishing - Culture Tour - Arusha National Park and Mount Meru Day Drive – Coffee Farm Tour – Chemka Hot Springs Tour - Tailor-made safaris for groups and individuals
