This small, intimate lodge and spa is set above a valley with glorious views. Only a short drive from the entrance gate to the Ngorongoro Crater, Kitela makes an ideal, away-from-the-crowds base from which to explore the region. Game drives into the Crater are easy to arrange, and the lodge combines well with other accommodation in the nearby Serengeti as well as Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks.
Created in the style of a colonial farmstead, the main building serves as a hub for luxurious cottages nestled in a landscaped tropical garden. Relax in the blissful and scenic pool area by day and enjoy the cozy atmosphere of the bar in the evenings. From the comfort of your luxury cottage, take time out to immerse yourself in the indulgence of the African Spa or take guided walks through the vegetable gardens, coffee plantations and local Maasai villages.
