After a longish drive on 'typical' Africa roads ('African massage'), arrived at the oasis of Elewana Manor. There are hotels that are closer to Ngorongoro, so if you intend to have multiple days in the caldera, you might want to mix and match. Either way, we will 100% be going back to the Manor. A genuinely nice south African couple... More

A beautiful and very large room, amazing views, and great facilities. We were sad we couldn’t stay longer and take advantage of the extra activities like horseriding and cycling. The trip to the Ngorongoro national park was one of our favourite days of the whole Elewana Sky Safari trip – the views, animals and landscape were just incredible. And the... More

We arrived at The Manor after a very bumpy road that let up to this magnificent property. This beautiful Manor lodge, surrounded by a coffee plantation, included horseback riding through the coffee plantation. Excellent service overseen by the young couple Camilla and Roddy. It was well located and the rooms were absolutely gorgeous and the meals were outstanding. This is... More

The Manor at Ngorongoro is a beautiful site and facility, with spectacular views. It is extremely well run, with excellent food, and all the amentiies. The manager, Roddy Meiring and his wife are wonderful. Roddy went far beyond the call in helping us deal with a minor medical problem. I recommend the Manor enthusiastically and without reservation. If you have... More

We stayed at the Manor at Ngorongoro at the end of an amazing trip to the Serengeti organized by Africa Dream Safaris (an awesome outfitter). Driving up to the Manor, you go through lush coffee plantations. You are welcomed at the charming reception area with a cold towel and a refreshing drink. You are checked in and taken through the...

We had a wonderful stay at the Manor. Room was clean, staff very friendly, great service, wonderful food and gorgeous grounds. Lots of special attention such as locally grown and fresh coffee brought to your room in the morning, wonderful picnic lunch to enjoy on the Crater (other tours were jealous of our lunch spread) and then a nice hot...

Stayed here 2 nights and loved this very special place. As our name implies we are a 5-star diva travel family and this place exceeded all of our expectations. Location--yes, about 1 hour from Ngorongoro crater but really not a big deal. The drive over was fine. Yes, the road getting to the Manor is a bit rough. Welcome to... More

From the minute we arrived until we reluctantly left we were pampered, fed and made to feel at home every minute. Everyone was ready to make this a once in a life time experience. After a long day on a photo safari it was nice to come "home."

The Manor at Ngorongoro was spectacular! I believe it's one of the finest experiences we've ever had - the facilities are beautiful, the grounds are serene - looking out over the coffee plantation - I felt like I was in a movie set! The staff were so attentive and courteous and gave 150% - from the waitstaff to the housekeepers... More

The location is amazing , high on a hill surrounded by coffee plants. The actual hotel "rooms" are actually individual English cottage style villas with their own terraces and lounging chairs. We were there at the end of June which is their winter, so it was a bit chilly at night, but while you are at dinner, they light the... More
