Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania
With 16 lovely cottages spread out across flowering gardens and located near the Ngorongoro Crater, this elegant lodge has a peaceful setting and is in fact a working coffee plantation. The lodge offers very comfortable and nicely decorated rooms with en suite bathroom, a small sitting area, and a spacious veranda overlooking the gardens, which provide many of the vegetables and fruits served in the restaurant. There is a welcoming bar with a good wine list and the staff offers complimentary appetizers on the terrace before dinner. Or, enjoy a sundowner by the pool!
