Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge

Ngare Sero is one of the oldest family lodges in Tanzania. 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. It offers only 10 garden rooms, 1 main house suites 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 rode under the tree canopy or treat yourself in a 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.

Additional Information & Comments
Located in a small forest reserve beside a spring, Ngare Sero Lodge aims to set an example for environmentally friendly and socially responsible tourism.
Damming the spring has created three lakes that support a healthy ecosystem of animals and birds.
We generate our own hydro-electricity to power the lodge and our organic trout farm.
All drinking water comes direct from the springs, and we also supply fresh water to the neighboring schools and villages.
We are striving to be carbon neutral by absorbing our carbon production via indigenous tree planting and forest protection. We also run our company vehicles on vegetable oil.
The lodge purchased a portion of land surrounding the springs to extend the forest and to further protect the springs from erosion and pollution.
We collaborate with the village government and the authorities to protect the forest, water source and management of water extraction.
Most of the vegetables and salads served to our guests come from our own organic garden.
Typical Complaints Received
Not enough time spent at the lodge. To fully enjoy the place one night is not enough.
