Ngorongoro Crater Lodge

If you want the ultimate game-viewing and safari experience, but aren’t - at heart - the sleeping-under-canvas type, you should consider Ngorongoro Crater Lodge.

Poised on the very rim of the crater, it provides you with infinity, horizon-wide views of one of the most magnificent wildlife sanctuary in the world. And your luxurious suite will have the floor-to-ceiling picture windows necessary to make the most of it

You will dine in style, on the edge of the world, and have panoramic Crater views from your bathtub (just don’t drop your camera). You’ll experience sensational game drives, trek deep into the Crater and witness traditional Maasai warrior dances. If you’re visiting Ngorongoro, come to Crater Lodge.
