Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is located in northern Tanzania on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater, the largest intact caldera in the world at 2,000 feet deep. Daily game drives on the Crater floor, walking safaris, and the unique opportunity to dine within the Crater give guests an up-close-and-personal wildlife viewing experience.
An estimated 25,000 large mammals are residents of the Crater, including a large population of lion. Large numbers of buffalo, zebra and Thomson’s gazelle can be seen grazing the crater floor. Natural springs and a soda lake within the Crater provide unique areas to tour and hold seasonal flamingo populations. This natural wonder is a veritable wildlife haven, and bird enthusiasts will enjoy world class birdwatching.
During their stay, guests will enjoy beautiful accommodations with private baths, fireplaces, stunning views of the Crater from floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as amenities including a shop, wine cellar, wifi, complimentary laundry, and in-room massage services. Suites are stilted with banana leaf ceilings and grass roofs, service is personalized and detail-oriented, and the Masai-inspired lodge is elegantly constructed to enhance the breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. Day-trips to Olduvai Gorge and Shifting Sands are available from Ngorongoro Crater Lodge.
