We arrived at the Manor and were amazed at what a luxurious place it is. Had we realized how nice it is, we would have done less souvenir shopping and arrived earlier! The food was delicious, and the staff were so attentive. The staff think of every detail, for example, they had hot baths ready for us when we returned... More

The Manor has definitely made our stay with them unforgettable. And it wasn't easy with a group of 18. The managers and the rest of the staff go all out so that your stay is a s confortable as possible. This includes a great breakfast packed to eat at the Ngorongoro Crater. The rooms are beautifully decorated, with a toasty... More

One of the nicest places we've ever stayed. More importantly, the management and staff could not have been more sensitive and accommodating. Our 13 year old daughter became I'll while we were at the Manor and the Manor personnel did everything they could to help, including ferrying us back and forth to a clinic, catering to my daughter's every need...

I was there last week together with my husband, during a safari in Tanzania for our 10th anniversary, and everything has been... simply perfect! This is not a hotel, it is a private mansion that let you in. Unfortunately we were there only for 2 nights, but I would go back and suggest a more relaxed holiday to enjoy the... More

There is nothing to complain about this hotel. Everything was perfect, evrything was luxury. We stayed at a family suite, which was in fact a house! The food was excellent, the staff very nice. During our stay at The Manor, we felt like being the being placed 200 years back in time, being the landlord on a coffee plantation. This... More

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...
