andBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge
Fairytale accommodation in a breathtaking location. Must be seen to be believed.
andBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is an institution amongst safari properties in Africa. One of, if not the most opulent lodges in Tanzania, a visit here feels like stepping into another world.
The lodge is perched on the Ngorongoro Crater rim and all rooms have magnificent views down onto the crater floor. The property is split into three distinct camps, which ensures andBeyond’s famous levels of guest delight are maintained throughout.
The rooms themselves are audaciously decorated and whilst they may feel slightly over the top, the magic is carried off seamlessly. Surprises await, seemingly around every corner, and the diversity of amenities and activities means visitors of all ages will be enthralled.
As well as unforgettable game drives to the crater floor, accompanied by expert guides, andBeyond offer gorge hikes, wine tastings, Wildchild activities, private sundowners, crater banquets, and much more.
We’ve been lucky enough to visit the Ngorongoro Crater Lodge several times (including Mike’s mum’s 60th birthday trip) and each visit has left us full of joy and wonder.

Why we love it
“One of the most decadent properties in Africa; Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is a place to enchant the senses. It comes with a price tag to match, but those who are able to visit will make memories to last a lifetime.”
