Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge: picture gallery


Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge is located on the eastern rim of the Ngorongoro Crater.
The spacious main area has large windows to make the most of the views...
…and lots of simple seating areas…
The lounge area is comfortable and homely...
...and a great spot for admiring the views.
The dining area offers wonderful views - on a clear day!
...though it is large and busy.
Meals are normally served as a buffet…
… and the bar has an extensive range of beers, wines, cocktails and spirits.
Sundowners can be had round the small campfires...
...and there is a pool, which sits right on the edge of the Crater.
All 98 rooms are in two-storey manyattas…
…and most of them look straight out over the Crater floor.
Each room is equipped with two large comfortable king-sized beds,…
…a desk with a large mirror,…
…and other simple yet practical furniture.
We especially liked the chairs that sit at the front window of each room…
…where you have stunning views.
The en-suite bathroom is very spacious...
…with a flush toilet…
…and a walk-in shower.
The traditional artwork really livens the hotel up!
