We absolutel loved our stay at the Wellworth Ngorongoro Oldeani Mountain Lodge. Room‘s are beatiful & luxurios, food was great & the staff, especially Fredy, who was our go to person went above & beyond to make us feel special. They even surprised us with a beautiful private dinner out on the terrace since for our honeymoon. They really care about their guests, be it e.g. accompaning you back to the lodge in the dark, offering you a great choice of lunches to go for the safari or just welcoming you with a smile & a chat. Asante sana - we will be back!
