Rhino Lodge

The rustic Rhino Lodge is situated close to the Ngorongro crater rim in beautiful scenic surroundings. It’s the most basic of all lodges in the Ngorongoro conservation area, but an affordable alternative to basic camping at the rim, which can get pretty cold.

The lodge has 24 bedrooms, and features double and twin beds, with an optional third bed. The rooms are simply furnished with Masai décor, have en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold water. Each room has a verandah with views to the lush green environment.

The lodge organises walking safaris at the Ngorongoro Crater rim, guided by a Maasai ranger. You can also visit local Masai Bomas in the nearby area.


When you hear the word Ngorongoro, what is the next word that comes to your mind? Crater, perhaps? Yes, indeed the Ngorongoro Crater is rightly renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and abundance of wildlife. However, there is a lot more to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area than the Crater itself and many visitors leave the area without having had the opportunity to see more of what is on offer. The surrounding highlands include seven extinct volcanoes full of outstanding beauty and spectacular scenery. The best way to appreciate these attractions is by walking. Even a short walk of only an hour or two can be very rewarding and there are also many opportunities for longer hikes. After spending days sitting in a vehicle, some visitors do say that they would like to stretch their legs.
