This place has a fantastic view over the crater. We had a room overlooking the crater. It is very convenient for visiting the crater and we enjoyed sitting trying to see animals way below us! We enjoyed staying thre.

Myself and my wife stayed here for one night in September on the night of our safari through the Ngorogoro Crater. As far as views of the Crater go, this was simply breathtaking and it is hard to imagine any other lodge has a better view. The lodge sits a short drive from the Crater ascent road within the conservation...

We came here while on a safari in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater. The rooms are a little small but its not a big issue. The view overlooking the crater from the rooms and deck are incredible. The food is very good with a very large selection of dishes from the buffet. Would highly recommend.

The lodge is fantastic: Ngorongoro crater best view absolutely!!! The food is great, you can chose many different dishes in a very romantic atmosphere. Funny and friendly staff. The rooms have an old fashioned style but they are comfortable.

Yes, the rooms are small but between game drives and enjoying the beautiful views from the balcony overlooking the crater and socializing in the excellent public areas of the lodge the only real time one is going to spend in their room is to sleep. Our room was big enough for the two of us and had a small area...

The views at this hotel are great, right on the crater rim. The rest of it is very, very average. You wouldn't mind if you were paying normal rates for a 3 star hotel, instead of 6-star rates. To start with: the room walls are made of paper. You will hear every single person on the floor get up at...
