Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge
With 98 rooms, the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge is a very large and rather dated hotel. However, it occupies a lovely spot right on the eastern edge of the Ngorongoro Crater. Its size means that it wouldn't be everyone's first choice of hotel, but the views over the Crater are superb – and it is affordable.
Our view of Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge
This is a large property that shouts: 'chain hotel'. It could be almost anywhere in the world, if it weren't for the shop selling African curios. For people looking for something small, intimate and authentic this is not the place. However, it has a great feeling of space, the staff are very friendly and the views are absolutely magnificent. It has quick access down to the crater floor and it is great for families who have younger kids that would make the most of the pool as well as those travelling on a bit of a budget.
