Ngorongoro Crater Lodge

Stay in the hotel by the crater that collapsed nearly three million years ago, forming a caldera that became a habitat for lions, elephants, pink flamingos and most importantly, black rhinos. Each cottage in Ngorongoro Crater Lodge provides a magnificent panoramic view of the entire crater. What can be more special than waking up to the mesmerizing vastness of this green valley at an altitude of 7000 feet?

Every suite in Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is a separately standing cottage with a private panoramic terrace and a dining area where you can order your meals to be served. Get ready for chill mornings and evenings typical for this elevation. But don’t worry, your own fireplace will keep you warm and create a romantic ambience.

The entire lodge was built with local materials only. Luxurious colonial interior of the cottages is accentuated with a rich blend of gold, silver and ruby. When dining in the main house filled with Victorian furnishings, you can easily lose track of which era you are in.

Empakaai crater is a little crater not far from Ngorongoro. Here you’ll get an excellent opportunity to have some rest from all the jeep rides and finally take a full hiking day to explore the wilderness. Empakaai Crater is surrounded with a thick green forest and has a lake inside. From this spot you can see a famous active volcano Ol Doinyo Lengai when the weather is clear.
Tour of Olduvai Gorge and Shifting Sands
Tour of Olduvai Gorge and Shifting Sands
Olduvai Gorge is the world-famous paleoanthropological site where one of the first remains of homo sapiens were found. This little museum is also known as the Cradle of Mankind. If you are interested in archaeological historical places, you will be definitely fascinated by this one! The excursion continues with the Shifting Dune. A small constantly moving ash dune formed by volcanic dust rarely stops at the same place thanks to the unidirectional wind.
