Our group of 10 had very high expectations about our stay at the Crater Lodge and most were met. The location on the crater rim is phenomenal. During dusk, we could hear lions roaring from the crater floor and if you dared to peek your head outside your own personal hut at night, you might spy a few cape buffalo...

If Ngorongo Crater is considered as one of the natural wonders, then perched on the rim of the crater itself is The Ngorongo Crater Lodge, a lavish wonderland. It will feel like you are in a dream. The individual villas are dotted across the property with spectacular views of the crater and Zebras and buffaloes roaming the grounds. As soon...

After going on our first safari last year, my husband and I decided on a second trip. Having heard so much about Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, we decided that we had to go there. The staff was exceptionally friendly and the food was good. The main lodge was well decorated and comfortable. Fires were lit, drinks served before dinner, and conversation...

We just returned from a ten day safari experience in Tanzania that included the Crater lodge, Serengeti Under Canvas, and Lake Manyara Lodge - all andBeyond properties. They ALL exceeded our expectations (which were quite high), and the Crater Lodge property was the favorite of both my wife and myself. Our two adult children loved them all but liked the...

Difficult to describe this fantastic hotel in a fantastic setting with fantastic service. Not cheap but considering what you get and where is it, it is a real fantasy. The service of a five start hotel in one of the major world cities on top of the Ngorongoro Crater, which must be one of the most beautiful places in Earth....

Such an eclectic property is such an amazing location. The hot bath with rose petals after a long but fabulous day in the crater is beyond fabulous. It would be very easy to enjoy a day of leisure at this property as there is plenty to see and do there, without going into the crater. Staff are fabulous. The 'gym...

Gorgeous! Otherworldly! We arrived at the airstrip and were whisked off the the lodge by Joseph, who would be our ranger for our stay. The drive from the airstrip to the lodge was long, but beautiful. It was quite misty and foggy, which obstructed the views as we made our way along. We were greeted by staff members singing. Very...

So please take this review with a grain of salt. Pros: 1) Lodging: The rooms are quite stately and very, very elegant. Starting with the bed, it is a king with some of the softest linen you will find in Africa. The rooms are built out of warm colored wood, which makes you just want to curl up and relax...
