This lodge ranked a unanimous #1 amongst five that our family visited in our 8-day safari trip to Tanzania over the Christmas 2016 holiday. All were fabulous, but the combination of funky architecture, antiques, comfort, service, food, fireplaces, rose petals, views from the rim of the crater made Crater Lodge the winner. We were lucky enough to be in the...

My family stayed at the lodge last week and had an incredible stay. The rooms are 5 star, the staff is friendly and efficient. The food is top notch. Seeing the Buffalo on the lawn as we walked to and from dinner was just one of the many highlights of our stay. Irene is a fantastic host, her passion and...

We traveled to Ngorongoro at the end of an amazing bush and beach time with both andBeyond and Kempinski. We had first heard about Ngorongoro from a South African ranger in Kruger who had only heard about how incredible the place was and who told us about the unique environment, so it was in our minds. We then saw Tony...

this breath taking place is fantastic after a day of game... couldn't ask for more! The only thing is to be aware that their is alot of stairs so if you travel with alot of luggages or old or Young people... This is good to know. The staff is great and the food was nice.

We spent two nights of our safari honeymoon here. The honeymoon suite was absolutely incredible and the staff went the extra mile to make it romantic. The game drive and bush walk were incredible as well.

This had my favorite lodging facilities from our stay in Tanzania. The room had a fire place that our butler lit every evening and the housekeeper had a bath ready after each game drive. The shower was uniquely designed. And buffalo joined us each evening, which we viewed safely from our deck. Our butler, Nemes created a fantastic in-room dinner...

My wife and I stayed here in October 2016 (just getting around to doing some reviews) and this place is simply faultless. From the obviously unrivalled views to the food and attention to every detail, its probably the best place we've ever stayed. Thanks to Irene and Simon who looked after us and did a simply outstanding job.

We were very much looking forward to our stay in the Lodge, so much we even changed our itinerary and dates to make sure we could squeeze in two nights here. We liked the setting, food, views and game driving (although it is less of an adventure given all the animals are inside the caldera and the rangers cannot leave...

We stayed for 2 nights in November 2016. Our room was beautiful, spacious, big bathroom, comfortable bed looking out to the crater, great views. The staff was helpful, courteous, always asking if we needed anything. The chef prepared excellent meals. Our guide was very knowledgeable, pointing out and identifying all the birds and wildlife. I think the best lodge at...
