Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge

Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge

The Ngare Sero Lodge is set amid forest and crystal clear waters on the slopes of Mount MeruSet in lush gardens amid forest and crystal clear waters on the slopes of Mount Meru, Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge is the ideal base for a Safari, or just a wonderful place to relax and simmer in the immense beauty of East Africa.

 The Lodge is 20 km east of Arusha on the Moshi Road. Just 1.5 km from the main road is a jacaranda avenue leading to a foot-bridge. The Lodge is reached by crossing the lake and climbing steps up through the gardens or by driving around our forest reserve to reach the car park.

It is equidistant between Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) in Moshi and the Arusha Airport, both of which are reached in about half an hour. We can meet guests at the airports and transfer them between the Lodge and Kilimanjaro International Airport and Arusha Airport.

In 1973 Mike and Gisela Leach restored the farmhouse and converted it into a tourist lodge. Thick walls, heavy timber beams and period décor, impart comfort and charm. The gardens contain a profusion of trees and flowers, two hundred species of birds have been recorded and troupes of monkeys inhabit the forest and grounds.

If you like fishing, the Ngare Sero Mountain Lodge is the place you will love.Trout Fishing

Try your hand at still water fly fishing for specimen rainbow trout. Bring your own fly rod or use one of ours. Take your catch to the kitchen where we will prepare the fish to your liking. Our record catch is 3.6kg or 8lbs. We have recently stocked many small trout. Please release any fish below 2lbs or 1kg.

Ngare Sero Trout Farm

Our rainbow trout farm is situated near the lodge and is fed by the cool, pure water of the Ngare Sero springs from Mount Meru. The lake around the Lodge is stocked to provide great fly fishing to Lodge clients.

Large-scale fisheries and environmental destruction have driven the oceans beyond their sustainable threshold, therefore we feel it is vital consumers support environmentally friendly and efficient culture systems such as this one.

Trout Farm Tour

Down stream from the cold water Ngare Sero springs is our Rainbow Trout Farm where we organically culture trout to provide our guests with fresh fish and to stock the lake.

We generate our own electricity with a hydroelectric turbine to power most of the trout farm and lodge. Let us show you around this environmentally friendly method of aquaculture.

Riding Meru

Learn or practise horseback riding in our dressage size paddock or venture along the sawdust trails within the grounds of Ngare Sero Lodge. If you are a confident rider, our syce will guide you through village and forest trails along the valleys and ridges of Mount Meru.
