This stay was the highlight of our African Safari . Beautiful public areas, a wonderful inviting accommodation, and a staff that couldn't do enough for you. The food was great and you had a welcoming fire in your room when you returned from dinner. You could watch zebra grazing outside your window while you took your bath. We were in...

This is a bit late as we were at the lodge a year ago, but it was a truly remarkable ambience. This lodge may be the closest we come to Rivendell in Africa. The service was superb, the dinner exquisite and the setting without compare. This is a destination in and of itself. Having said that, we enjoyed our nights...

If you are planning a trip to visit the Ngorongoro this is the place to stay, expensive, but worth it, they know how much you are paying so they make sure to meet your expectations and even go further. The view from your rooms is unbeatable and at night you will probably meet a lot of buffalos just outside in...

Located on the rim of the crater, the lodge offers amazing views and upscale lodging in Masai style huts. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The common and dining area for our group was the Tree House, an eclectic and beautifully designed structure built around an old fig tree. The food and service were excellent. The staff couldn't have...

We stayed at the camp for 3 days as part of our Tanzania and Zanzibar vacation. Everything about this resort was top shelf, including the General Manager (I forgot her name), Daniel the Operations Manager, Patrick the waiter, and all other staff we interacted with during our stay. We were in room 22, which was mind boggling in every way....

The stay there was simply fantastic. Rooms(absolutely nothing kitch or cheap about them), service, food, views, service, service, service. The safari in the morning was great as well. We felt pampered. I recommend it to everyone who wants to have a nice romantic getaway.

The Tree House is perched on the edge of the crater with great views. Luxurious rooms with a tub bath that looks out over the crater. Very attentive staff. Delicious meals. Great guide that found the animals.

AndBeyond is really incredible! The Tree House lodge at Ngorongoro crater was really amazing. The rooms and the lodge area were incredibly nice and the view of the crater is mind blowing. The service here too is some of the best service we've had anywhere. Would definitely recommend it

This is a place that you will never forge. First for the location,high in the roman of the Ngorongoro crater,were you have a stunning view of one of the most exotic places on earth. Principally also by this hotel,a combination of African architecture and French Versailles. Staying in one of their independent rooms while an exotic animal may roam outside...

This is the most incredible place we have ever stayed. The crater is a must visit destination, as there is nowhere else like it. The crater lodge is beyond words. The service was superb, especially our butler Mr Mackay. Our guide was great and we saw a great many animals. The food was wonderful and suited us just fine. Our...
