The homey feel of the lodge is by no means accidental as the origins of the homestead continue to emit glimpses of times-gone-by.  The main Plantation House is home to an à la carte restaurant, an intimate bar and a cozy lounge, all of which have inviting open log fires.  There are two boutiques, an enclosed swimming pool and a popular garden terrace.  The common areas also offer complimentary Wi-Fi.

Perched on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater, the sumptuous &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is without doubt one of the most spectacular lodges in Africa.

An eclectic blend of elegant teak paneling, Victorian furnishings and whimsical African touches creates an atmosphere that is as elegant and unique as the crater itself. Steeped in romance, the spacious suites boast floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Beaded chandeliers hang above large gilt mirrors, while antiques, billowing raw silk curtains and leather-backed chairs blend harmoniously with African art elements. Personal butlers discretely cater for each guest’s every need, bringing tea in bed, stoking fireplaces and drawing luxurious bubble baths.
