“Great stay”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

The guys are in charge. Cater to French tourists but very accommodating to everyone. Food is delicious. Limited hours on the generator- it's off 11:00pm to 5:00am. Breakfast is good but no perked cofee, only instant. We stayed in one of the four new tents and they where very comfy. Lots of hot water and open concept behind the sleeping area. Lovely valley views and roosters where not up too early. You are 40 minutes from the gates of Ngorongor Crater.

Room Tip: The 6 older tents are going to be replaced. Request a new tent id available, they have indoor shower...

We really enjoyed our stay at NFTL! Our room had a breathtaking view! The food was marvelous and the staff very helpful and friendly! Its easy access to Both Ngorongoro and Manyara made it special and the wildlife we saw was magnificent. A must visit if you're looking to do both; the crater and lake manyara!

Room Tip: Stayed in the very last room! Was very nice and secluded. Though all rooms have a fabulous view.

We stayed here after visiting Ngorongoro Crater. This lodge is not in the crater, but the views were still great, you are in the middle of a very lush green valley.

Lodge was nice, I have stated this my other posts, we were in Tanzania to see the animals so our accommodations were good, we did not expect luxury so we were pleasantly surprised when we got served with good china and silver ware.

Overall I would stay here again, if just for the experience of going to the crater.

the lodge is very good, with 2 bath rooms (outside + inside). we can enjoy the nature when we are taking bath. room is well-facilated and lodge has excellent service. the food is also delicious. room rate is USD240 per night, i think you can have very good rate if you stay there in low season. there're 6-7 rooms with 16-18 persons. the lodge is located in karatu town and it takes around 20 min. for driving to ngorongoro conservation area.

We stayed at 3 different tented camps during our safari: they were all very nice but this one was the best. The camp is very charming: only a couple of tents in the middle of the nature with a great view.Tents are very nice and comfortable with high quality furnitures and each of them has an amazing view on a valley. You also get two showers for each room: one inside and one outside.

Also the staff was very friendly. We really recommend this camp.
