Ngorongoro Crater Lodge

One of the most luxurous lodges in Tanzania, perched on the edge of the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater – a World Heritage site. Inspired in design by the Maasai mud-and-stick manyatta (homestead), three intimate camps comprise romantic suites.

Without doubt, the Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is one of Africa’s architecturally most spectacular safari lodges. It consists of three camps with Maasai-inspired suites. Each suite’s opulent design blends with African art elements in unexpected harmony. The facilities include a central living area, viewing decks overlooking the awesome crater

Steeped in romance, each mud and thatch suite is reminiscent of a bygone era, with the stilted, handcrafted structures adorned in graceful antiques, grand chandeliers and African treasures. The bedroom, sitting room and en suite bathroom boast floor-to-ceiling glass windows, overlooking the magnificent Crater below. Your personal butler will discreetly tend to your every need, bringing you tea in bed, stoking your fireplace and drawing your bath.

Described as Maasai meets Versailles, each extraordinary camp operates independently with its own central living and dining areas and viewing decks. Early settler-style interiors combine silver, gold and ruby colours under banana-leaf ceilings and grass roofs. Beaded chandeliers hang above large gilt mirrors, and antiques, plump cushions, voluptuous raw silk curtains and leather-backed chairs blend harmoniously with African art elements.

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.
