Occupying a spectacular spot right on the rim of the Crater, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is undoubtedly one of the most opulent lodges in Africa. Combining architectural hints of traditional Maasai homesteads with interior styles borrowed from European stately homes, the present lodge was built in 1995 when Abercrombie & Kent took over an original lodge from 1956.

Our view of Crater Lodge

Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is a unique property – for some it is completely over the top and out of place; for others it's the height of luxury. The whole Maasai-meets-baronial-manor concept is extraordinary; the food, service, rooms and general facilities are excellent; and the location is outstanding, with its stunning views over what many regard as the world's top wildlife area. But it's also one of the most costly lodges in Africa.
