Ngorongoro Crater Lodge

The Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area in Tanzania is one of the natural wonders of the world; its six mountain peaks are constantly in view and sightings of the big five – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard – are frequent. The plains and swamps teem with game and an enormous variety of birds. The conservation area is also home to Masai people and their cattle which co-exist with the existing wildlife in a unique ecosystem.

Accommodation & Facilities
Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is perched on the actual crater rim providing perfect views of the crater below. It is difficult to describe as a place but breathtaking would be a fitting adjective. The rooms are beautifully furnished and the staff excellent. It is regarded as one of Africa’s finest and most unique lodges. It is made up of three camps, two with 12 suites each and the Tree Camp which has just six suites. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, and the design is inspired by the Masai manyatta. Each camp has its own dining area, and the suites at the Tree Camp all have a private deck and lounge with an open fireplace.

Wildlife & Activities
Whilst here, you can go on safari along the crater floor which teems with game year round. Alternatively you can visit Olduvai Gorge where some of the oldest remains of ancient man can be found.
