One of the prestigious hotels of the Elewana Collection, The Manor at Ngorongoro, which is situated near the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers ultimate comfort and luxury. Set on a coffee plantation spanning over 1 500 acres, the safari lodge is designed in typical old-world colonial style with a blend of warmth and hospitality so true of the East African culture. Nearby in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is world-famous attraction, the enormous Ngorongoro Crater, formed almost 3 million years ago by a now-extinct volcano. Today its wildlife, rivers, forests and plains offer unsurpassed beauty.
The 10 luxurious Cape-Dutch style cottages at The Manor offer expansive views and are beautifully decorated with all the necessary amenities to ensure guests are at their most comfortable. Think double-sided wood-burning fireplaces, freestanding baths, roomy showers, king-size beds, private decks and more. For bigger groups or families who prefer total privacy, there is also the Stable Cottage – a two-floor cottage with a lounge, dining room, fireplace, courtyard and two bedrooms on the ground floor and a children’s area on the second floor with twin rooms, bathroom and playroom. It also includes a private deck and a personal butler.
Activities are aplenty at The Manor. A day tour of the Ngorongoro Crater where guests will most likely spot lions, buffalo, zebra and black rhinos as well as beautiful forests and rivers, will be a highlight. Picnics can also be arranged in the crater where guests will dine on delicious food surrounded by majestic beauty. A visit to the nearby Lake Manyara National Park will offer guests a chance to spot elephants, giraffes and hippos as well as exquisite fig and mahogany trees. Back at The Manor, guests are able to go on horse riding or mountain biking trips through the surrounding hills, or can simply unwind with a body massage or in the sauna or steam room.
The Manor at Ngorongoro, set on the lush rolling lawns of the Arabica coffee estate, provides unforgettable sunsets, exquisite views, delicious food, awesome adventures and spectacular service.
