A unique and wonderful experience which started as we were greeted on arrival whilst still in the 4wd by the staff singing and dancing a welcome. Genuinely friendly staff and very original architecture. Fabulous views of the crater although it can be very cold at night and may be in the clouds some days but the wood fires in all...

This was the second stop on our safari trip and we were bowled away by the luxuriousness of the crater lodge. We had no idea what to expect given the fact this was our first stay in a place with a butler. KK was great he tended to our every need which were not many... Nature did a good job...

Crater Lodge really is unique--I've never been anywhere like it. The view, the over-the-top decor, the dining, the really great staff; the sense of incongruity: it all combines to equal an experience you won't find elsewhere. A couple of tips: a. North and South Lodge are very similar but Tree Lodge is different. The latter has smaller rooms (shower behind...

Ngorongoro Crater Lodge – this camp is set at high altitude and is quite cold, so bring a winter coat and hat for night drives and dinner time. We were there in July 2014 and it was cold. The crater has tons of animals and the drives were great – our ranger was Peter, who we liked very much. Two...

The location of this lodge is spectacular, perched on the rim of the crater the lodge (2300 meters) has uninterrupted views down into the crater itself which is 10 miles diameter. This Lodge has 3 separate lodges which all have their own staff & communal areas. We were staying in North Camp. The individual bungalows I assume are modelled on...

This lodge is so over-the-top given its location in Africa. While this lodge was very comfortable, it just felt strange to be staying in such an extravagant place on a safari trip. I now know I prefer accommodations that feel a bit more appropriate for the location. Our “chalet” room was very well-designed with terrific crater views from every angle....

Our group of 10 had very high expectations about our stay at the Crater Lodge and most were met. The location on the crater rim is phenomenal. During dusk, we could hear lions roaring from the crater floor and if you dared to peek your head outside your own personal hut at night, you might spy a few cape buffalo...

If Ngorongo Crater is considered as one of the natural wonders, then perched on the rim of the crater itself is The Ngorongo Crater Lodge, a lavish wonderland. It will feel like you are in a dream. The individual villas are dotted across the property with spectacular views of the crater and Zebras and buffaloes roaming the grounds. As soon...

After going on our first safari last year, my husband and I decided on a second trip. Having heard so much about Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, we decided that we had to go there. The staff was exceptionally friendly and the food was good. The main lodge was well decorated and comfortable. Fires were lit, drinks served before dinner, and conversation...
