Crater Lodge

Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is perched on the edge of the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater at the eastern edge of the Serengeti in northern Tanzania. Lying within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, which covers more than 8 000 square kilometers (3 100 square miles) of pristine African wilderness. Inspired in design by the Maasai mud-and-stick manyatta (homestead), Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is without a doubt one of the most architecturally spectacular safari lodges in Africa. Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is comprised of three intimate camps perched on the edge of the Crater. Features include the famous Ngorongoro Crater – a World Heritage Site, three intimate safari camps with breathtaking views, spectacular year-round game viewing, interpretive Big Five safaris, nearby Olduvai Gorge and Shifting Sands, and private butler service.

    Suite (1-3 Nights)

    Ngorongoro Crater Lodge consists of three adjacent, glamorous camps with 30 Maasai-inspired suites perched on stilts on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. From the outside, this unobtrusive lodge resembles a magical Maasai village. Set in classic crescents, each stone and thatch suite has spectacular views of the crater from large glass windows in the bathroom, lounge, and bedroom, yet is almost invisible from the crater floor. North and South Camp have 12 suites each, while intimate Tree Camp has 6 suites. All have an en suite bathroom and chandelier-lit bath-tub and shower. Each sumptuous suite is discreetly tended by a personal butler, who will bring you tea in bed, stoke your fireplace, and draw your bath, scattering the water with rose petals, ready for your enjoyment.

                            The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest, unbroken volcanic caldera in the world. One may see a diverse range of magnificent wildlife on the Ngorongoro Crater floor. Take a journey back in time and explore the birthplace of our ancestors at Olduvai Gorge, which is known as the Cradle of Humankind. These are just a few things to check out in this region. The Serengeti offers wide open plains, expansive African skies, and wild game as far as the eye can see. The Great Rift Valley forms some of the world's tallest mountains and deepest lakes.
