Located on the rim of the dramatic and breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater, the lodge offers magnificent views over the world’s largest intact and unflooded caldera. The crater is a place of rare natural wonders, from its miraculous terrain to the abundant fauna and flora it supports, and it is more than worthy of its status as a World Heritage Site.
Ngorongoro Crater Lodge boasts architecture as impressive as its setting. While the structural style evokes a traditional Maasai mud-and-stick manyatta (homestead), the interiors and finishes are pure opulence. Chandelier-lit bathrooms, personal butler service and very fine dining give Ngorongoro Crater Lodge a richly deserved reputation for excellence.
The encircled grasslands of the crater floor offer excellent game viewing year-round with 25 000 large mammals, including black rhino, zebra and eland, and Africa’s densest population of lion. The rainforests of the crater walls are home to elephant, buffalo, leopard and cheetah, making for spectacular game viewing.
