For the staff members at &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, there is no better way to spend the day than in making our guests' safari dreams come true. Our chefs, butlers, housekeepers, security and workshop staff are trained with the same dedication as our field staff, but their pleasure in sharing your special moments is something that cannot be taught. They are the magic ingredient at &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge and their commitment to creating moments that take our guests' breath away is genuine.

The Very Best Training
&Beyond runs three full-time ranger training schools headed by professional ranger trainers in Africa. Each ranger at &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge undergoes a rigorous training course at one of these schools before joining their team. They then receive further on-site training and benefit immensely from their colleagues' ongoing mentorship. It is through their passion for what they do, and their desire to develop and learn that &Beyond's guides are among the finest in the world.
Perched on the edge of the Crater itself, this award-winning lodge is fit for a king and queen.
Steeped in romance, each stilted, handcrafted banana thatch suite is adorned with graceful antiques and unforgettable opulence.
