About
Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge is dramatically perched on the rim of Africa’s Eden, affording unbelievable views plunging down over the crater floor, 7,500 feet above the sea level. The Lodge is elegantly built mainly from natural stone and local wood and timber, harmoniously merging with its natural surroundings, and it is provided with panoramic windows that encompass superb views of the crater’s great bowl.

This place was great. The view from the room and from the balcony of the restaurant was breathtaking.. The crater just on front of you... We even had a bufalo just outside our window! Very clean, comfortable and really good food. Definitely recommend this accommodation.
