“Great property close to the crater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

This is a really new lodge right at the gate of the Ngorongoro Crater. It has about 20 rooms all of which are like Swiss cottages with zanzibarian roofs and overlook the beautiful forests. The rooms are huge with large balconies and very tastefully decorated.

The food was exceptional with a lot of choice and I hope they can maintain this standard. All the staff are very friendly although they can be a little too attentive over mealtimes and you wish they would perhaps leave you alone a little more.

The management are very apparent but don't fuss over you which was nice. We had trouble with the wireless and they helped us with their own landline.

I would certainly say that this is a really great option for accommodation close to the crater without actually being on the rim.

Room Tip: All the room seem to be the same.
