Ngorongoro Sopa


Lodge on the highest precipice of Ngorongoro

In millennia past, a giant volcano in Tanzania’s greater Serengeti ecosystem exploded and collapsed in on itself, leaving in its wake the world’s largest intact caldera. Today, grassland, lakes, and forest dot the floor of the crater and provide a haven for a multitude of wildlife. On the highest point of the crater’s rim, Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge overlooks this marvel of nature, giving guests access to this magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Aside from the bountiful wildlife in the crater itself, the wider Ngorongoro Conservation Area and neighbouring Serengeti have proven to be one of the country’s most prolific safari destinations. The Serengeti sees over a million wildebeest pass through annually as part of the Great Migration, while nearby Olduvai Gorge holds evidence of the earliest species of man.

Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge faces West and the end of every day can be spent saluting the sunset with a sundowner in hand. Each of the lodge’s sumptuously-furnished rooms boast magnificent views of the crater, while the main lodge’s on-site amenities include babysitting services, outdoor dining options, Wi-Fi, and a swimming pool. There are also wheelchair accessible rooms for guests who require it.
