If you're going to go the Ngorongoro Crater, this is the place to do it from, and if you're not, I'd still come see this place anyway. What an amazing location less than 5 min away from the main gate to Ngorongoro Crater. Upon entering the lodge grounds, you're greeted with warm towels, fresh juice and an amazing staff to... More

I spent a day here, had lunch, sat by the pool. Did not go into the rooms but had a wonderful time. Clean, friendly staff, and excellent service. The ambience is great, the view magnificent, the gardens beautiful. I wish I had stayed overnight…next time.

I stayed here for two nights in October 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms are magnificent. The bedroom and bathroom is larger than most rooms in East Africa but then there is the sitting room and veranda with marvelous views of the Crater rim.
