On our 25 day trip to Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zanzibar we had the joy of visiting the Ngorongoro Crater and staying 2 nights at the lodge. The lodge, decor wise, is a little over the top. Call it exotic African. The rooms are spacious and if you request one with views looking down into the crater you will not... More

We stayed for 3 nights with my then-GF in February. I had planned to propose while at NCL and everyone helped, I had packed a "black box" that she wasn`t allowed to see (a bottle of Champagne). Our butler (Msisi) took it out of my bag while we were out. Everything at the lodge is perfect, they even arrenged for... More

What an unusual and special place. It's like staying in a film set. Hobbit land immediately comes to mind. It's a fantastic venue, and the ideal spot to explore the wonderful Crater which is full of Lions, Hyenas and a wild array of animals and birds. The And Beyond go that extra mile to make it special. Food was good.... More

Recently visited this lodge during a 2 week safari through several stops in Tanzania and Kenya. The lodge is eloquently decorated and the staff is just as poised and helpful. Everyone was accommodating. Eric was our tour guide and I HIGHLY recommend him. The safari experience in July far exceeded our expectations with plenty of wildlife to view. The food... More

My party of 5 stayed in three "hobbit" lodges in the Tree Top area of the resort. I'd recommend selecting this part of the camp because it's more intimate: only six lodges share the common area for drinks and meals. We easily made friends with the others staying at the Tree Top. The common area of the Tree Top is... More
