The Manor is a stunning new lodge located in the Ngorongoro highlands just outside the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Sister to Tarangire Treetops and Migration Camp, it is of a similar high quality with great food and service, and it is an great base from which to explore the Ngorongoro Crater floor.
Our view of The Manor
The Manor is an elegant and smart new lodge and though on the surface it appears quite formal, it is actually very laid back. When we visited in August 2009, we thought it felt more like a family home than a lodge. All the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and will make sure that every guest is well looked after and spoiled.
We also really liked the Afro-European architecture of The Manor which is quite 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 really well.
