The Manor is a luxury lodge located on the Shangri-La Coffee Estate; it covers 6km² of the Ngorongoro Highlands, adjacent to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Most visitors will probably use this as a place to eat and sleep – whilst driving into the Ngorongoro Crater during the day for their main activity.
Our view of The Manor
The Manor is an elegant lodge with friendly staff; it’s a luxurious base from which to explore the Ngorongoro Crater, and possibly Lake Manyara – with one room which is particularly family-friendly. We really liked the Afro-European architecture of The Manor, which is unlike any of the other plantation-style lodges in Tanzania. The mix of natural tones, classic furniture, polished wooden floors and traditional architecture results in a smart colonial style that works well.
