Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge

Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

Mango Opinion

This is the most budget option, besides the public campgrounds, on the rim of the Crater. Great views of the Crater from the lodge!

This lodge is too rustic for most of our clientele - OK for backpackers or school groups with a limited budget.

Situated on the rim of an ancient collapsed volcano, Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge offers guests uninterrupted views of the Ngorongoro Crater, a true remaining natural wonder.

This is one of the most unique ecosystems on earth is home to over 20,000 large grazing animals, boasting the largest concentration of predators found on the planet.

All have a fabulous view over the crater and are equipped with central heating system, mosquito nets and hot water shower.
