In more detail

Spectacularly located on the very rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, this luxurious Sanctuary offering presents sweeping valley views of what is the world’s largest inactive and intact volcanic caldera. Here, great grasslands and montane forests are dotted with bright-blue lakes, forming the ideal habitat for a stunning array of wildlife. And, you’ll get right among this fascinating ecosystem with a 4WD crater floor drive, included with each stay. Your expert guide will point out everything from hippos and black rhinos to zebra and cheetah. The park even features the highest density of lions and predators in Africa. 

If you stay for a second night, you’ll also be treated to an included game drive out to Lake Manyara National Park where savannah and evergreen forests host elephants, leopards and literally millions of flamingos and other birdlife. There’s also the opportunity of visiting a nearby Maasai village.

You’ll return, each day, to the rustic styling of your own canvas tent. Hark back to the golden age of safaris with campaign furnishings, darkwood timber floors and atmospheric lighting. There’s even a compact sitting area at the front of each one – ideal for enjoying your morning coffee and biscuits. However, that’s not to say that you’ll miss out on home comforts, with en-suite bathrooms host to indoor showers. Back at the main lodge, you’ll be welcomed with a comfy lounge, bar area and wraparound deck, where you can enjoy a full spread of complimentary drinks as the sun sets over the crater. 

The indulgent dining is also all-inclusive, with buffet-style meals showcasing the best in local ingredients. Ever accommodating, Sanctuary Ngorongoro also affords the option of taking your breakfast and lunch in the bush – a truly evocative experience that fits seamlessly into your game-drive programme. Or, for something intimate, take your meal at one of the individual tables set out in secluded spots around the camp, each overlooking the action below.
