This place is impressive, beautiful!! It is hard to get here, you must either walk for hours or rent a private matutu if you don't have your own transport... The lunch there is very average and extremely expensive.. Skip lunch, go straight up to the crater and walk around, you could have a tea on your way out for sunset...... More

There are 2 attractions from what I understand: walking the crater rim and visiting the animal sanctuary. Both can be easily done in one day, and combined with lunch. We have only hiked the crater rim which we enjoy, seeing giraffes and buffalo up close. Lunch is also pleasant on the edge of the crater's lake. The second time we... More

We went here for lunch, which was very good and swiftly served. The fresh juices are nice and the menu seems fresh. She lake is beautiful to view and the walk to the restaurant is lovely. Great scenery, also on the drive there. The only downside is the wildlife. There wasn't much to see. Some warthogs, zebras and a giraffe... More

I have been here before and was disappointed this year by the park. I remember there being far more animals that what was available this time. We weren't expecting to do the whole crater walk, it was a bit much in the heat. The park used to be worth it but not this visit.

Thank you very much indeed you must put on the right shoes and attire. While taking the rim walk you should be prepared for a purely bush experience, juggling across stones, trees and animals is a great experience. Our guides are well trained to give you the best of knowledge during your nature walks and game drives. We'll keep enhancing... More

My visit to Crater Lake Santuary June 2014, was one of my favorite trips to Africa. In the past I've been to the Big Parks and seen the Big Five. This trip was off the beaten path a little more laid back. I do photography and don't think you can't get a great photo or enjoy a walk among nature... More
