Ngorongoro Crater Lodge

Amazing safari camp with even more amazing views


Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is without doubt one of the most architecturally spectacular safari lodges in Africa. Steeped in romance, each mud and thatch suite is reminiscent of a bygone era, with the stilted, handcrafted structures adorned in graceful antiques, grand chandeliers and African treasures. The bedroom, sitting room and en suite bathroom boast floor-to-ceiling glass windows, overlooking the magnificent Crater below. Your personal butler will discreetly tend to your every need, bringing you tea in bed, stoking your fireplace and drawing your bath. 

Described as Maasai meets Versailles, each extraordinary camp operates independently with its own central living and dining areas and viewing decks. Early settler-style interiors combine silver, gold and ruby colours under banana-leaf ceilings and grass roofs. Beaded chandeliers hang above large gilt mirrors, and antiques, plump cushions, voluptuous raw silk curtains and leather-backed chairs blend harmoniously with African art elements. The domed dining room, with its fireplace, crystal, silver and massive wooden platters, makes every meal at Ngorongoro Crater Lodge a special occasion.

Ngorongoro Crater is the best self-contained safari destination in the world. Often referred to as the 'Garden of Eden', the rich pasture and permanent water of the crater floor shelters a large population of animals. This is the site of a deep volcanic crater and the world's largest unbroken caldera. 

Ngorongoro Crater Lodge has expert guides who will lead you on interpretive game-drives in closed 4x4 safari vehicles with pop-up roofs into the Crater (half or full day) and Ngorongoro Conservation Area, boasting exceptional game and bird viewing opportunities. Driving into the Serengeti is an optional extra, and highly recommended during the first four months of the year when the migration is in the area.
