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 – while driving into the Ngorongoro Crater during the day for their main activity.
Our view of The Manor
The Manor is a graceful, pleaceful and charming lodge with friendly and very professional staff, at a high price tag. This is a luxurious base for exploring the Ngorongoro Crater, and perhaps Lake Manyara – with one suite of rooms 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 – not to mention touches like the complimentary sherry in every room and baths run for your return from the crater – results in a smart colonial style that works well.
