    Large Hotel at the edge of Ngorongoro crater with a beautiful view. International food served at the buffet. Nice pool - quite cold though, but for the kids it was ok anyway. We even saw a buffalo in the garden during the night

    The most beautiful Sopa lodge that I have stayed in. The restaurant is awesome and the selection at the buffet is excellent. The weather in July was very cool and refreshing. The room we stayed in had a great view of the crater.
