Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is perched on the edge of the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater on the eastern edge of the Serengeti in northern Tanzania. Inspired in design by the Maasai mud-and-stick manyatta, it is without doubt one of the most architecturally spectacular safari lodges in Africa.
The lodge itself consists of three adjacent camps with 30 Maasai-inspired suites perched on stilts. Set in classic crescents, each stone and thatch suite has spectacular views of the crater from large glass windows in the bathroom, lounge and bedroom, yet is almost invisible from the crater floor. North and South Camp have 12 suites each, while intimate Tree Camp has six suites. All have an en suite bathrooms and personal butlers.
The central living area and viewing deck overlooks the crater, while African artefacts and clothing are on sale at the gallery/Maasai Market.
