Crater Lodge

Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

Part of the Tanzania Safari & African Safari Collection

Perched above cool, swirling mists on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater, the sumptuous safari suites at andBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge offer breath-taking views. Inspired, in design, by the Maasai mud and stick manyatta, or homestead, this is without doubt one of the most spectacular lodges in Africa. 

Three separate and intimate camps totalling just 30 suites are reminiscent of a bygone era. Steeped in romance, each stilted, handcrafted mud and thatch suite is adorned with graceful antiques, grand chandeliers and elegant African treasures. The bedroom, sitting room and ensuite bathroom boast floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the magnificent Crater below. 

Beaded chandeliers hang above large gilt mirrors, while antiques, billowing raw silk curtains and leather-backed chairs blend harmoniously with African art elements.
