andBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge
One of the most luxurious lodges in all of Africa right on the edge of the Ngorongoro Caldera. Without a doubt, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is one of the most spectacular and opulent lodges in the world. It consists of three camps with Massai inspired suites. Facilities include a central living area and viewing platforms overlooking the impressive crater. The lodge was built in 1995 and combines architectural elements of traditional Massai bomas with interior design styles of European mansions.
Ngorongoro Crater Lodge consists of three separate private camps (North Camp: 12 rooms, South Camp: 12 rooms, Tree Camp: 6 rooms). Each has a separate dining and lounge area, which contributes to a small and exclusive ambience – although the lodge has a total of 30 rooms. Bedroom and lounge have floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the crater. A personal butler discreetly takes care of all your needs. If you are looking for a decadent Versailles meets Maasai experience, this is the place to stay.
