Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge is dramatically perched on the rim of Africa’s Eden, affording unbelievable views plunging down over the crater floor, 7,500 feet above the sea level. The Lodge is elegantly built mainly from natural stone and local wood and timber, harmoniously merging with its natural surroundings, and it is provided with panoramic windows that encompass superb views of the crater’s great bowl.

Great location on rim of crater for viewing crater plain below. Heavy mist in the mornings so need to be in lodge later in the day to take advantage of the viewing and searching for animals with high-powered binoculars located on the deck. Staff was very friendly and helpful and food was good. Drawback was uncomfortably cold temperature. There is no heating or cooling (a/c) in the lodge. Occupancy was very low when we were there (late August 2021) and we were told that more people made the place warmer. Wasn't all that troublesome for us but others in our family complained about the cold.

We stayed there in june. The view from the terrace was beautiful, you can see the crater 360o. The hotel was like the old english-style, nice, but sadly with cero maintenance. The room was freezing and the matress hard as a rock. The bathroom door knob was broken. The staff is not professional, we asked to speak with the manager and a lady told us that it was not possible as he was resting and the hotel was empty! The food was the worst part, I think the chef wasn't even a chef, terrible experience in a beautiful location.

This is simply the best vie you can have !! You see the whole crater from your rooms but also the restaurant. It is magnificent. The hotel seems a bit old but it has its charm. We stayed one night and we were two customers in the whole lodge... (covid) From the restaurant you can use their binoculars to watch animals like rhino which are usually hard to spot on drive safari. Food was not that great but good enough. It is maybe because we were the only customers However the view makes up for the food, 100%

It is the BEST VIEW of the crater, stunning! Very clean, food is ok but the view definitely compensates. We slept very well in the room. It was a little bit cold because of the altitude but they had prepared extra blankets for us so no problem. The staff is welcoming, one of them even showed us animals with binoculars. :) I strongly recommend this place!
