We wanted to see the great migration, and the ngorongoro crater. We couldn't decide between the several AndBeyond camps and chose a 6 night trip, 2 nights at Klein's camp, 2 at Serengeti under Canvas and 2 at the ngorongoro crater. Each camp has its perks. Unfortunately we were too late to see the great migration in its full strength,...

From outside it looks like a Maasai village, from inside like a Versailles palace. Interesting and charming combination, with impeccable service including a pre-prepared hot bath when you arrive and a fireplace turned on in your room when you go to bed. And of course, sitting just at the border of the crater provides an amazing view in the evening...

We started our safari at the Ngorongoro crater and truly enjoyed the setting of this andBeyond lodge. Considering the high elevation, we did enjoy the cooler evenings but were very happy to have a warm fireplace in the evening and heated beds. Our safari trek started early at 6:30 am and we were back by 2:00 pm and decided the...

My family and I traveled throughout South Kenya and North-NorthWest Tanzania. This was one of the best places that we had stayed the entire trip. I thought that this was an exceptional place to stay. First of all, was the view. The view was exactly what you WOULDN'T be able to imagine. In the main dining area at the highest...

On our safari, we generally stayed in tented camps but gave ourselves this luxury. It is a beautiful property with a look of "Hobbiton" to it. The rooms were magnificent with a shower, bathtub with rose petals, a comfortable bed and wonderful chocolates and food at your disposal in the room. We were in Treetops which actually I preferred as...

This stay was the highlight of our African Safari . Beautiful public areas, a wonderful inviting accommodation, and a staff that couldn't do enough for you. The food was great and you had a welcoming fire in your room when you returned from dinner. You could watch zebra grazing outside your window while you took your bath. We were in...

This is a bit late as we were at the lodge a year ago, but it was a truly remarkable ambience. This lodge may be the closest we come to Rivendell in Africa. The service was superb, the dinner exquisite and the setting without compare. This is a destination in and of itself. Having said that, we enjoyed our nights...

If you are planning a trip to visit the Ngorongoro this is the place to stay, expensive, but worth it, they know how much you are paying so they make sure to meet your expectations and even go further. The view from your rooms is unbeatable and at night you will probably meet a lot of buffalos just outside in...

Located on the rim of the crater, the lodge offers amazing views and upscale lodging in Masai style huts. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The common and dining area for our group was the Tree House, an eclectic and beautifully designed structure built around an old fig tree. The food and service were excellent. The staff couldn't have...
