Rift Safari
Traveling along the Rift Valley: Ngorongoro Crater Lodge


back

   
Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is one of the most famous hotels in the world and certainly the most luxurious and original lodge of Ngorongoro. Perched on the steep escarpment that surrounds the famous Ngorongoro Crater, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is the result of the dreamlike journey of the italian architect Silvio Rech who designed it with ancestral knowledge, assembling elements and concepts from a variety of cultures and blending them into a product of unparalleled size. The richness of interiors, in explosive contrast with the poverty of exteriors will surprise you: thatched roofs and mud walls outside, inlaid wood furniture and finishes, crystal chandeliers, precious Versailles-style drapes and golden decorations inside. You could be delighted or find such an opulence unjustified and ill-suited to an African experience but certainly you will not remain indifferent to such a spectacle.

The lodge is divided into three camps: the north and south camps consisting of about 20 rooms and the Tree Camp with just 5 suites. They are all the same price and it's not possible to book a specific one.
Each Suites is attended by a butler, who will serve your tea when ever you'll wish so, prepare your bath on return from safari and start the fire for the chilli highland nights. The view over the crater is ensured in each of them by the large downstream windows.
