Serena Mountain Village Arusha Reviews
Mountain retreat Aug 15, 2001
We really enjoyed staying at the Mountain Village Lodge. The grounds were beautifully maintained and rich in bougainvillea and the rooms clean and with great views. We loved sitting outside in the beautiful garden areas drinking, reading or having a trip brief/debrief. It is a little remote from town so we were happy we had transport. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
I do not know how much this Lodge costs as it was part of our package.
