Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is without doubt one of the most architecturally spectacular safari lodges in Africa. It consists of three glamorous camps, North, South and Tree Camp, with 30 Maasai-inspired suites. Set in classic crescents, each suite has spectacular views of the crater from large glass windows in the bathroom, lounge and bedroom.
North and South Camp have 12 suites each, while intimate Tree Camp has six suites. All have an en-suite bathroom and chandelier-lit bath-tub and shower. The sumptuous colonial-style interiors combine silver, gold and ruby colours under banana-leaf ceilings and grass roofs. The rooms' opulent design blends with African art elements in unexpected harmony.
Each of the three exclusive camps operates independently. Each of them has a central living area and viewing decks overlooking the awesome crater. Ancient African nights are evoked by the large fire bowls that flank the entrance to each of the living and dining areas. There is a communal curio shop and gallery. African artefacts and clothing are on sale at the gallery / Maasai Market.
Pan-African cuisine is served in the outdoor dining area or dining room, where evening log fires flicker between silver screens. The domed dining room, with its welcoming fireplace, crystal, silver and massive wooden platters, treat every meal as a special occasion.
