A Day at Ngorongoro Crater Lodge
As the dawn begins to tinge the morning sky, a soft knock on the door announces your butler with a wake-up call and a fragrant cup of tea or coffee. An air of anticipation for the day ahead hangs over the breakfast table as the morning meal is served.
Discuss your hopes for the day's wildlife viewing with your guide as a winding road takes you through the thick forests on the Crater's rim. With tens of thousands of animals inhabiting the Crater floor, game drives are likely to produce some exceptional sightings, perhaps even the entire Big Five in one day!
Stop at one of the designated picnic sites on the Crater floor for a delicious packed lunch. Surrounded by some of Africa's most iconic scenery, as well as masses of wildlife, the appetite is sharpened and the taste buds awakened. Continue your wildlife adventure after lunch, returning to the lodge in the early afternoon, or opt for a shorter drive and return to the lodge for lunch.
Indulge in a decadent afternoon tea or a sundowner cocktail as you watch the play of light on the breathtaking Crater views from the comfort of your private suite.
Mouthwatering tastes and delicate textures do their best to distract guests from the splendour of the Lodge's dining room. Magnificent designs delight the eye, while fragrances and flavours tempt the palate.
