- Ngorongoro Crater
The most unforgettable in Africa
With vast, primal views of the crater below them, Ngorongoro lodges rank among the most unforgettable in Africa. A select few are set right on the rim itself, offering panoramic views at every turn plus first-onto-the-crater-floor game drives. Maasai dance displays and cultural tours are also part of the activity list.
Not all Ngorongoro lodges are on the crater rim however. Several are located an hour’s drive away in the town of Karatu, set in a hilly coffee-growing district. Here you’ll find shady plantation homes and boutique lodges offering activities like mountain biking and cultural tours as well as day safaris to the Ngorongoro Crater. The question is: do you stay on the Ngorongoro Crater Rim or Karatu?
