Reminiscent of a country farm and boasting quaint Cape Dutch-style architecture, The Manor at Ngorongoro Crater lies within the Shangri-La estate, surrounded by lush gardens. Harking back in time to a grander age, the ten luxurious family friendly cottages blend East African hospitality with colonial European architecture and décor. Intimate and private, the cottages boast ensuite bathrooms, indoor and outdoor fireplaces and private decks that maximise the magnificent views.
Meals are sumptuous affairs to be savoured in the formal dining room, the dining conservatory or privately in the guest cottages. African-inspired fare is complemented by a selection of fine wine from the manor’s own cellar. Guests can relax and unwind in the sauna and steam room, try their hand in the snooker room or read one of the many books from the library whilst lounging in front of a cosy fireplace, a great place for the family to play board games. Fun family adventures include excursions to Lake Manyara and Olduvai Gorge, visits to a Masai Market, guided estate walks and leisurely bicycle trails along the Ngorongoro Crater.
