Ngorongoro Crater Lodge
We cannot do better than describe it exactly as it is described by CC Africa:-
Crater lodge consists of three adjacent, glamorous camps with 30
Maasai-inspired suites perched on stilts on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater.
From the outside, this unobtrusive lodge resembles a magical Maasai village,
and was described by travel magazine, Discover Africa, as "Versailles meets
Maasai in the game lodge at the edge of the world". Set in classic crescents,
each stone and thatch suite has spectacular views of the crater from large
glass windows in the bathroom, lounge and bedroom, yet is almost invisible from
the crater floor.
North and South Camp have 12 suites each, while intimate Tree Camp has six
suites. All have an en suite bathroom and chandelier-lit bath-tub and shower.
Inspired decor and eclectic design make these romantic camps ideal for
celebrating a special occasion.
Each sumptuous suite is discreetly tended by a personal butler, who will bring
you tea in bed, stoke your fireplace and draw your bath, scattering the water
with rose petals, ready for your enjoyment.

The sumptuous colonial-style interiors combine silver, gold and ruby colours
under banana-leaf ceilings and grass roofs. Crystal chandeliers hang above
large gilt mirrors reflecting carved Zanzibar wall panelling decorated with
goldleaf. Huge bowls filled with long-stemmed red roses complement the Persian
carpets and velvet bedspreads. Antiques, plump cushions, voluptuous raw silk
curtains and tall, leather-backed chairs complete the picture. This opulent
design blends with African art elements in unexpected harmony.
Each of the exclusive camps operates independently. They each have a central
living area and viewing decks overlooking the awesome crater. Ancient African
nights are evoked by the large fire bowls that flank the entrance to each of
the living and dining areas. A typical Zara Tanzanian safari
