The biggest issue relating to the Manor is its distance to the Ngorogoro crater. If you leave the Manor at 6:30 am you will be descending into the crater and beginning to see animals at 8:45 am. This leaves more than enough time to travel throughout the crater floor. There are hotels on the crater rim that are much closer to the game, but they are that much further away from the airport. They may also be more expensive than the Manor. Your total travel time to and from the airport to the crater is going to be the same, whichever hotel you choose; the Manor is about half way between the two. The Manor itself is a repurposed coffee plantation manor and is beautifully renovated. The rooms are modern, well appointed, and quiet. The Manor has a spa and a number of available activities. The grounds are lovely; drinks on the balcony overlooking the property were quite pleasant. The dining room reminds one of an upscale, small urban restaurant with service to match.
