Ngorongoro Crater Lodge

Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

One of the most luxurious lodges in East Africa, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge appeared on Condé Nast Traveler’s prestigious Gold List for 2007 and 2008. Each stone and thatch suite has spectacular views of the crater from large glass windows in the bathroom, lounge, and bedroom. The lodge buildings hug the crater rim, linked by timber walkways that skirt the buttressed roots of ancient trees.
