Very clean and well kept place. We loved walking the private road where you can see the organic fruits and vegetables that are grown on site, there are bright colorful flowers everywhere. The lodges are huge, impressive and comfortable, from our balcony we saw elephants every evening. We enjoyed the romantic fireplace in our room. The quality of the food... More

The Lodge is absolutely outstanding!!! Beginning with Mr. Stanley Morley Lodge Manager who ensured everything was perfect to his staff who did everything to make our stay amazing. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. The view from our balcony was breath taking. What more can you ask for?

Rooms are elegant, spacious, and all have views - expansive terraces, living rooms, cozy fireplaces, and spotless full bathrooms. Beautiful setting on a ridge line above rainforest. This is a great place to unwind and relax in a luxury atmosphere while on safari - a nice and welcome break from other more rustic camps and lodges, while still being set... More

After a week of hiking the Kilimanjaro and tented camps for safari, Neptune in Ngorongoro took out breath away. The hotel is beautifully landscaped, and the room was spectacular with its own fireplace at the living area and bedroom. It's balcony facing the canopy and mountains which make it even more special. It was my birthday, and the manager and... More

We spent two nights here while we explored Ngorongoro crater. Like most resorts and lodges in Tanzania, we were greeted by bright, smiling staff and cool cloths to clean our dusty faces. The grounds are immaculate and a feast for the eyes. Very clean and well kept. Bright colorful flowers everywhere. We loved walking down the road to see the... More
