The rustic wood cabin style of the beautiful Exploreans Ngorongoro Lodge in northeast Tanzania, which is situated on the edge of the breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater amongst tree-lined hills, offers luxurious accommodation with all the necessary comforts. The extinct volcanic crater which spans an area of 240km2 and is known to some as the eighth wonder of the world, lies within the Ngorongoro Conservancy, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where forests, rivers and plains are abundant with wildlife of all kinds including zebras, wildebeest, hippos and even the endangered black rhino. This exquisite part of East Africa promises a truly relaxing getaway.
Exploreans Ngorongoro Lodge has been running since January 2012, the 20 luxurious log cabins are surrounded by acres of lush greenery and towering trees. Each cabin is spacious and offers a lounge with a fireplace, a bedroom with twin beds and a fireplace, a dressing room, an en-suite bathroom and a private deck with endless views over the crater. Children are welcome at Exploreans, with each suite able to convert day beds into beds for children to sleep on. The lodge offers babysitting services too.
In the main area of the lodge, guests are able to relax on the deck with a drink in hand while taking in the magnificent view. The library and TV room will provide entertainment, and the safari gift shop provides many options for those wanting to take home a keepsake.
Guests looking to enjoy some sunshine will relish the circular swimming pool with its sundeck and for a truly rejuvenating experience, a visit to the resident Mvua African Rain Spa will do. Excursions such as guided nature walks and safari trips into the crater, to Lake Manyari and Olduvai Gorge can also be arranged.
All meals are served in the Accacia Restaurant and are prepared using fresh produce directly from the lodge’s vegetable garden and nearby local villages. Poolside or bush dinners can also be arranged with the addition of a cozy campfire.
