This small, intimate lodge and spa is set above a valley with glorious views making Kitela an ideal, away-from-the-crowds base from which to explore the region. Game drives into the Crater are easy to arrange, and the lodge combines well with other accommodation in the Serengeti as well as Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks.

The main building serves as a hub for luxurious cottages nestled in a landscaped tropical garden. Relax in the blissful and scenic pool area by day and enjoy the cozy atmosphere of the bar in the evenings.
