Accommodations In The Ngorongoro Crater

Set in 50 acres of virgin Tanzanian bush in the Ngorongoro volcanic landscape, this all suites wood log cabin style retreat is located a few steps from the Game Reserve Gate and 20 minutes drive away from the Ngorongoro Crater that is said to have the most dense concentration of wildlife in Africa .

This all inclusive property features 25 spacious private log cabins with fire place, a restaurant, a bar and conference facilities. Indulge in moments of relaxation at the swimming pool or at the Mvua African Rain Spa after a full-day game drive.

Ngorongoro Serena Lodge
Luxury Lodging (Pricing between $190 - $300 per person)
The ancient weathered look of Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge gives the impression that this Tanzania lodge was meant to be here. Most of the rooms at this Tanzania lodge on the Ngorongoro Crater have private terraces with magnificent views looking over the caldera.

Ngorongoro Serena Lodge is built into the rim of the Ngorongoro dormant volcano, into which you descend on daily game drives in the Ngorongoro Crater of this 'Lost Eden'. On your Tanzania safari you will enjoy the lodge's atmosphere with log fires and wall-lanterns or have a sundowner on the canyon rim.

Activities include game drives, walks, photography, travel to the Ngorongoro Crater and more.

Rhino Lodge
Standard Lodging (Pricing between $90 - $190 per person)
Rhino Lodge is a new and unique property which offers something refreshing within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It opened in September 2007, and rather than being a luxury lodge for tourists it is actually a very simple lodge aimed mainly at local Tanzanians.

At all times, international visitors can only occupy half of the lodge and the rest is reserved for Tanzanian citizens. The lodge was built in conjunction with the local community and has the ideology for making the Crater accessible to those who might not usually be able to stay in any of the other lodges in the area.

The result is a simple lodge that offers plenty of atmosphere, and is a great value place to stay in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

The main lodge is built with solid stone walls which are a muted green from the outside, and white-washed on the inside. The floors are highly polished stone and the furniture is simple comfortable sofas or wooden tables and directors' chairs.

The rooms at Rhino Lodge are all situated in a terraced row, around an outside courtyard. In front is a long wooden terrace which faces out into the dense forest on the slopes of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

The rooms are simple, with tiled floors, white washed walls and comfortable beds. Bed throws and curtains made from Maasai blankets add a touch of style, however the rooms still remain quite functional.

The en-suite bathrooms are again quite simple, but spotlessly clean and freshly decorated. There is a hot-and-cold shower, flush-toilet and a sink. There is also a UK-style plug socket in the wall.
Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge
Luxury Lodging (Pricing between $190 - $300 per person)
Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge has 80 spacious guestrooms, all of them affording fabulous views over the crater. Exquisitely decorated, offering a serene atmosphere of elegancy, the modern rooms are all ensuite, with central heating systems and mosquito netting over the air vents.

The 80 rooms include twin rooms, double rooms (with one double bed), one Presidential suite and three Junior suites. There are also interconnecting rooms, specially designed for families. The Presidential suite has been host to world renowned personalities who have enjoyed the magical experience of wildlife from the top location that Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge enjoys, being the first Lodge built on the Ngorongoro Crater.
Crater Forest Tented Camp
Standard Lodging (Pricing between $90 - $190 per person)
The lodge is operated as an eco-friendly small scale lodge with 15 tented rooms, all on platforms with magnificent views over the Ngorongoro Forest.

The rooms are spacious and all have ensuite bathrooms with hot showers and toilets. For those chilly upland nights enjoy the warmth of your own African-style firepot. Wake up to the sounds of the awakening forest as a night full of nocturnal wildlife activities gives away to mistily rising sunlight.

Complementary coffee and tea are served on your veranda in the morning. Enjoy the refreshing beverage in the early morning light as you prepare for another day full of your activities of choice.

Features include mosquito nets, bathrooms with showers, flush toilets, restaurants, lounges and more.

Ngorongoro Farm House
Standard Lodging (Pricing between $90 - $190 per person)
The Ngorongoro Farmhouse Lodge is a lovely lodge just outside of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Set in 750 acres of private farmland, it is comfortable, well laid out and has some lovely views across the farm and across to Oldeani Volcano. The Farmhouse Lodge opened in 2003, and since then has been offering good value accommodation and is a great base for visiting both the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara National Park.

The lodge is still a fully functional farm they grow their own wheat and the organic garden produces a lot of the vegetables used in the food. The farm is also home to cows, pigs and sheep.

Ngorongoro Farmhouse Lodge also has the feel of a farmhouse - as you arrive at the lodge, you are greeted with large, open grassy lawns which stretch across to the main areas.

Ngorongoro Farmhouse Lodge actually has 51 rooms (big by our usual standards), although when you're there, it feels much, much smaller. This is because the lodge is effectively divided into two parts each with its own communal bar and lounge area, and set of rooms. (About 26 rooms each side!) This division helps maintain the atmosphere of a small and intimate lodge.
