At Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge, the main features of Serena Active are:

An open-air ‘Crater Barbecue Lunch’ by a hippo-filled pool on the Crater’s floor.
An action-packed selection of adventure hikes around the Ngorongoro Crater and the volcanoes of the nearby Crater Highlands.
Authentic displays of Maasai dance, song, performance and music.
A day trip to Olduvai Gorge, the ‘cradle of mankind’, and site of one of the most important and controversial Palaeolithic finds in recent history.
A visit to neighbouring ‘Empakaai ‘, a 300m deep crater dominated by a flamingo-frosted soda lake.

Nightly wildlife and cultural talks, videos and film shows.
