The Lodge is magnificent and the staff as well. They make you feel very special. The food was great - was different every day and delicious!. The only slight reservation we had were the Rooms - while they are spacious, had a fireplace , great view etc overall it looked a little tired. Nevertheless, we had a wonderful time and... More

We got here after having an amazing time at the Serengeti - Grumeti ANDBeyond Tented lodge. I was so impressed with the staff there that I was sure it was all going to be downhill. Boy was I wrong! Patrick our butler was amazing. Alex our guide - knowledgeable, funny, he knew were to take us. The Ngongoro Crater (culdera)... More

We book ended our safari in luxury, the views location, rose petal baths, and oh the sublime food from our chef. Collectively, I thought we were in the new world looking out on Eden in the crater. To be recommended to all. Met amazing people, shared stories over pre dinner drinks. Best food of the whole trip, leave room for... More

This is a very special property overlooking the crater with magical views. The hotel was so special and looking like what I would imagine a hobbit village to look like. The service was excellent and I loved our butler KK who was wonderful. my only issue was that the room felt a little old and in need for updating. The... More

Absolutely mind blowing. Such a beautiful lodge. Great atmosphere, great food, great staff. Rooms with an incredible view on the crater, a warm bath (with a view!) after arriving from a game drive and a cozy fire place in the room, which is burning after you come home from dinner. Really one of a kind. Hope to visit this place... More

Think hobbit house meets luxury. Stunning views of the crater from the main lodge (we were in South Camp) and from nearly every room of our Hobbit house… from the deck, the bathtub, from the separate shower, even from the toilet! The lodge is not fenced off and animals do roam the grounds -- we saw a buffalo and impala!... More

Can capture this place so I won't even tryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.......... Over the Top. I never wanted to leave. And the New Years Eve is one I will never forget.... Masais as far as the eye could see leading the cortège to the other part of the camp, then more African dancing and singing in the most spectacular romantic settings in Tanzania.

After two nights at Dunia Camp in the Serengeti, our next stop was the super luxurious Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, another “and Beyond” property. This was an incredibly sumptuous lodge set at the top of the famous Ngorongoro Crater, with spectacular views of the crater below. You wondered how the locals were able to create such luxury in the middle of... More

It is hard to know what to say about Crater Lodge: the most stunning view in the world, the most remarkable decor, the most amazing staff, the most unusual rooms. Perhaps what I can say is that when you get back from a hard day and the bath is run and there is a flower petal heart laid on the... More
