The Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is located in Tanzania on the edge of the world famous "World Heritage Site" of the Ngorongoro Crater. Surrounding the lodge, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area spans 8,300 square kilometres, stretching from the Rift Valley to the Serengeti. The design follows the Maasai mud-and-stick manyatta (homestead) style. The Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is without doubt one of the most architecturally spectacular safari lodges in Africa.
Completely reconstructed, the lodge only re-opened it's doors in October 1997.
30 private cottages are separated into three camps, North, South and Tree camp where African design is complemented by graceful antiques, grand chandeliers and magnificent hand-carved four poster beds. Each stilted suite has an en-suite bathroom opening onto an outdoor leisure deck with panoramic views over the Crater. Public areas consist of three separate dining areas, a lounge, library, craft and curio shop, and viewing decks.
