This hotel is one of a kind. Our cottage with magnificent views of the Ngorongoro Crater is an eclectic blend of decorating styles but masterfully done. We returned to our " home' each night with a fire place for the cool September temperatures and rose...More
A bit of English Country Life in the middle on Tanzania. The Lodge is truly beyond comprehension. From the butler service, to the view from the rim of Ngorongoro Crater, there is nothing missing from this hotel. The food is outstanding, the rooms homey, the...More
“It’s like a fairy tale!” my 9-year-old grandson exclaimed when he entered Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, taking in its imaginative construction, with comfortable furniture, multiple fireplaces, surprising chandeliers hanging from a thatched roof, and its expansive views over the massive, ancient, volcanic crater.

Our family of two adults and two older teens stayed here for two nights in July 2018. Everything was magical. We met our guide, Kitoi, at the Manyara airstrip. He was beyond friendly. Kitoi drove us up the crater to the almost unimaginable lodge.

Hello, the schedule for game drives are generally customized to you. At the crater, we only did one in the morning. It was toward the end of a 12 day safari, so we decided to take advantage of the relaxing aspect of Crater Lodge in the afternoons rather than drive 2 x per day. The trip down to the crater is a bit long, so making 2 trips down is a lot. I would make your preference clear in advance. Can't hurt. Please know that the staff will be falling down to serve you here. Your wish is literally their command.
