On our arrival in Tanzania, Africa, we spent our first day and evening at the delightful Serena Mountain Village Lodge nestled along the shores of Lake Duluti. It, historically, was a coffee plantation, converted to a Safari lodge, and boasts these quaint, very comfortable individual shelters among lovely gardens.
