Ngorongoro Crater Lodge


“Expect the unexpected at this dramatic spot where Versailles meets Maasai. Don’t let the eclectic architecture fool you into thinking this place isn’t serious about its standards — it is the place to stay at the Crater and you won’t regret the splurge.”

Memorable moment
Arriving back to my room after a dusty safari in the crater to find my oversized bathtub filled with warm water and rose petals. Divine!

Be aware
The Crater floor is packed with vehicles and cameras. You won’t feel like this is your private safari.
