Allow plenty of time to enjoy this comfortable, efficiently run lodge! You'll want to stay longer! We arrived at dusk just in time to change for dinner and relax for a few minutes in front of the roaring fires in the lounge area.

We arrived weary, and when we went to sit out on our back deck after a hot shower, discovered a young waterbuck grazing right beside us. Drinks around a fire pit on the deck outside the restaurant continued our sense of relaxation and welcome. Dinner,...More

About
Description
Rhino Lodge is ideally located on the edge of the Ngorongoro crater rim. The Lodge was originally the home of Ngorongoro’s first conservator, and its developers have maintained the house’s original More rustic, low-impact style and natural setting. Rhino Lodge offers a perfect base from which to explore the Ngorongoro crater and its surroundings. Game drives into the crater, and, for the more adventurous, walking safaris in the forest reserve and visits to nearby Maasai villages, can all be arranged from the lodge. And, on return after a long day, 24 comfortable en suite rooms with forest views, a cozy living space, friendly local staff and generous African-inspired meals offer guests a warm welcome home. Less
