About This Accommodation
The Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is a luxury property in a prime area. Perched on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater with magnificent views of the landscape, this is safari with style. An intriguing mix of African décor, modern touches, and European royalty, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is a gem of over-the-top opulence; it’s Africa meets Versailles! Rooms are spacious with silk curtains, chandeliers, and wood paneling. The bathtubs overlook the crater and offer prime relaxation while soaking up the vistas. Food, service, management, and attention to detail are superb and this is an ideal place for a romantic honeymoon, but families are also welcome.
Although the property is quite large, it is divided into three camps making it feel more intimate. Tree camp has the most stunning views of the crater. However, it is not possible to request it beforehand and it is only available when the two other camps are fully booked.
Ngorongoro Crater Lodge truly is gorgeous and it’s perfect if you’re looking for luxury and pampering. However, we question if it’s worth the price at over $2000 per person per night during peak season, especially when you’re sharing a vehicle with other guests. Its superb location on the crater’s edge cuts traveling time for game drives, but we try to somtimes recommend avoiding Ngorongoro Crater altogether during the peak season as the crowds are impossible to avoid.
