To be honest we had a bit of a problem with this place. It is billed as being opulent but we had not expected a hotel in Tanzania to be quite so OTT. Quirky for sure, a bit like the Hobbit meets Louis 14th and definitely not an African experience. Somewhat unusual rooms from the outside, with completely OTT heavy...

Wow! The Tree Camp at Crater Lodge is an intimate camp with very comfortable accommodations. It has a central meeting/eating building that is beautifully appointed with great food and exceptional service. Great Staff! An experience of a lifetime!

This Lodge is breathtaking--and not just because of the altitude. I would say it is the most luxurious place we have ever stayed. If you are going to Tanzania, you MUST stay here. We felt pampered beyond belief. My husband is still telling people about the bath!! We will never know how Irene did it . . . she just...

This is such a special place! We stayed in Tree Camp and felt truly spoiled. Our room was special and full of fresh roses when we arrived as well as a tray with chocolates and sweet treats. Each evening a fire was lit in our room and electric blankets turned on to warm the bed. The food was delicious and...

As a family of five we stayed here for a night of luxury on our safari, we were not disappointed. Quite an amazing place, we did see zebra outside our two rooms and we did have a bath drawn by our butler ahead of our arrival at the end of the days safari, complete with rose petals. If you can,...

The room is perfect, huge bathroom with all the amenities. They even fill the bath with hot water when you come back from the drive in the crater. Super recommended. All rooms are perfect, we...

The Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is an adorable lodge on the rim of the crater. It's unfenced so there are zebras and wildebeest roaming around 24/7. The staff was wonderful! Daniel, the manager, and our butler were phenomenal. They were there to greet us when we arrived at the hotel, when we left for the game drive, and when we returned....

We stayed here two nights of our 25 night Africa journey. The architecture was unique, appropriate and inspiring. The service was excellent. The cuisine exceptional. We did a short nature walk around the facility with staff who talked about the history of the lodge and pointed out different birds. The resident zebras added to the character of the place. We...
