Perched on the edge of the crater rim, commanding dazzling views of the crater floor some 600 metres below. Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, inspired in design by African architecture, the Maasai Manyatta, is a magnificent return to the elegance of the travelling colonial nobility, a bygone era when characters such as Lord Delamere adorned the stilted, handcrafted structures with graceful antiques and grand chandeliers.

Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is made up of three villages, the North and South Camps with 12 suites each, and the Tree Camp which has 6 suites, all with en suite bathrooms, private deck and lounge with fireplace. Each suite is discreetly tended by a personal butler who will bring you tea in bed and stoke your fireplace, so you can relax and enjoy every minute of your holiday to Africa.

The domed dining room, with its fireplace, crystal, silver and massive wooden platters, makes every meal a special occasion. Delicious Pan-African cuisine may also be enjoyed on the outdoor dining deck.
