But the Rooms were just perfect (actually a little to big), the huge balcony hat a perfect view and as during the night it was quite cold the fire (and... More

Gorgeous lodge on top of the crater! Absolutely excellent service.. The manager, the cook, just the whole staff, did everything to accommodate to our needs! They organize a nature walk which is beautiful! Ngorongoro, little piece of heaven on earth!

We stayed 5 days in this lodge and it was extremely relaxed and enjoyable. This the perfect lodge to rest after a safari trip. The place is located just after the Ngorongoro park gate, but it's very quiet and calm. Each log villa is huge and has it's own terras overviewing a fantastic view. You are welcome personally by the... More

The location is great - just before the entrance to Ngorongoro. The suites are well equipped with astonishing view of the forest on the mountain. Food was ok. Service is great!! The hotel personal are very kind and caring. The place can be cold, so dress warm. The suites are equipped with fire place.

Very good located at only 2 minutes from entrance gate of the park . We were welcomed by the manager himself and he continued to be an important part of our stay: asking if he could do something to make us feel even more at home and indeed that's how we felt "at home". Arriving in a warm room (the... More
