Excellent service, the staff at Ngare Sero are extremely kind and very professional. The lodge is located far from the city and is a great get away from all the chaos and noise. The lodge covers a large area, very green and full of nature. The best part of our stay was the tour of the lodge; the river, trout...

I had a solo stay here post safari and it could not have been more perfect. The room was well appointed, comfortable and quiet, plus the laundry service is ridiculously inexpensive and fast. The grounds are beautiful with lots of activities available, including several walks, a pool and croquet. And if you just feel like relaxing there are several perfect...

As a resident of Arusha I have been here many times. It is my favourite place in the Arusha region. The property is stunning. There is a massive pool set in the most beautiful gardens. You can sit out with a drink and watch the colobus monkeys jumping through the trees and if you are lucky you can see Kili...

We spent 1 night at Ngare Sero before heading out for 11 days on safari, and then got a room for the afternoon on our last day in country before an evening return flight. Our safari outfitter recommended the day room, and it was a great idea -- after days in the bush, we really appreciated a good shower, a...

Our family just stayed for two nights at Ngare Sero following a three week Tanzanian safari. What a perfect spot to relax and revel in the beauty of the region! Several of us went on a daylong excursion to the crater in the National Park and saw gorgeous wildlife while I stayed at the property to enjoy one of the...

Ngare Sero is a lovely family-owned lodge set on beautiful forest acreage between the Kilimanjaro airport and Arusha town. Arusha National Park is close at hand. The lodge boasts a charming old main house, ten or so rooms and a charming pool cottage. Meals are wonderful and presented with care. There is a gorgeous small lake hosting numerous exotic birds,...

Ngare Sero is situated on an incredibly gorgeous property. It's a magical forest on a lake with trees and gardens covering the property. Monkeys jump from tree to tree. Horses graze in the gardens. Countless species of birds and cranes fly over the lagoon. Rabbits farm, trout farm, wilderness walks, and vegetable gardens. The food is delectable. Even breakfast seems...

This is an truly amazing place situated between Arusha and the Kilimanjaro airport. Great hospitality, history, service and even animal life surrounds this great estate away from the busy streets of Arusha. Based on other reviews, I would have thought this would be a 5 star no-brainer, but there are a couple of things to be aware of. This was...

Beautiful property and wished we could have stayed here longer (only stayed 1night)! Rooms were very spacious, big bed and living room, warm water, and quiet location. Restaurants served great meals and staff were very friendly! There's a nice lake, walking trails, horses, and pool. Internet connection was fine. Highly recommended and would definitely stay here again!

This lodge is very pretty situated on the grounds of an old German fortified farm. The rooms are large and suite-like with separate living room, bathroom, beds, etc. Unfortunately the rooms do not have fans or aircon, so can get a little hot. The property is very laid back and comfortable with large grounds to explore and a boat to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 and it is one of the oldest family lodges in Arusha.It offers only 10 garden rooms, 2 main house suites and pool cottage with 2 bedrooms, and provides personal service for its residents since 1974. 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. The Lodge is located only 30 minutes away from Kilimanjaro International Airport and Arusha town center and it is a perfect base while on safari in the northern circuit Tanzania. ... more   less
