Guests can be forgiven for losing track of what era, or even continent, they are experiencing at Ngorongoro Crater Lodge.
Nowhere else on Earth can you wake up among all the trappings of an elegant baroque chateau – baroque sofas, gilt mirrors, beaded chandeliers, and panelled walls – and be instantly transported into one of the most famous African landscapes with just one glance out of the window of the lodge.
In this place of dramatic contrasts, where the pinnacle of classical luxury collides with traditional African refinement, anything is possible. Let the breathtaking beauty of the natural surroundings alongside the dramatic interior sweep you off your feet.
Divided into three camps, 30 stilted suites with banana leaf ceilings and grass roofs provide an intimate and exclusive Crater experience. Each camp has its own sitting and dining areas, with private butlers who provide warm, personal service. Brocade sofas and Persian rugs invite you to re-live the day’s experiences around a roaring fire.
Everything is chosen to delight the imagination and enhance the spectacular views of the magnificent surroundings. An eclectic blend of elegant teak panelling, Victorian furnishings and whimsical African touches creates a sumptuous atmosphere that is as elegant and unique as the Crater itself. Leather chairs recline in front of a lit fireplace and raw silk curtains screen a private veranda. Even the gigantic bathtub is set under a hand-beaded chandelier.
Ngorongoro Crater Lodge has been called the game lodge at the top of the world and, between the natural riches of the Crater spread out at its feet and the amazing architecture, it’s easy to believe that you have entered a realm of pure fantasy. With ever-changing views as mists swirl and clouds scurry over the huge wildlife caldera below, the location is truly breathtaking.
