Tanzania - fly-in safari lodges?

We're looking for lodges in the Serengeti or Ngorogoro crater that have their own adjacent airstrip; i.e. somewhere we can safely leave a Cessna parked for a couple of nights and walk to the lodge! Can anyone offer suggestions?

As those are both Wildlife Game Reserves, I'd be careful of walking to or from the lodge!

In the "good old days" when I was around the practice was to overfly just about any lodge and they would send a land rover to the strip to collect you.
Nowadays almost everyone has telephones so just pick where you want to go and call for PPR.
