The Tree House is perched on the edge of the crater with great views. Luxurious rooms with a tub bath that looks out over the crater. Very attentive staff. Delicious meals. Great guide that found the animals.

AndBeyond is really incredible! The Tree House lodge at Ngorongoro crater was really amazing. The rooms and the lodge area were incredibly nice and the view of the crater is mind blowing. The service here too is some of the best service we've had anywhere. Would definitely recommend it

This is a place that you will never forge. First for the location,high in the roman of the Ngorongoro crater,were you have a stunning view of one of the most exotic places on earth. Principally also by this hotel,a combination of African architecture and French Versailles. Staying in one of their independent rooms while an exotic animal may roam outside...

This is the most incredible place we have ever stayed. The crater is a must visit destination, as there is nowhere else like it. The crater lodge is beyond words. The service was superb, especially our butler Mr Mackay. Our guide was great and we saw a great many animals. The food was wonderful and suited us just fine. Our...

We had an excellent time in the Crater Lodge, fantastic service, nature; zebras, buffalo and elephants wondering in the lodge. Food was very good, staff extremely helpful. Special thanks to Irene and Remingi, who made our stay wonderful. The houses are quite unique in design, you wake up every morning like in a story.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here after stopping at Arusha for an engagement we had. A superb place and great start to a 6 week stay in Africa. And do try one of their firm massages. We both visit a Myotherapy service at home on a regular basis. This East African massage in our room was exceptional. Not...

Amazing location right on the rim of the crater! The lodge is divided into 3 smaller lodges, and stayed at the ´Treetops´ within the lodge. The Treetops were right on the rim, all on stilts overlooking the crater. Absolutely fabulous views of sunrise and sunset over the crater. Personalised service was fantastic, their staff are just tremendous in their work,...

A unique and wonderful experience which started as we were greeted on arrival whilst still in the 4wd by the staff singing and dancing a welcome. Genuinely friendly staff and very original architecture. Fabulous views of the crater although it can be very cold at night and may be in the clouds some days but the wood fires in all...

This was the second stop on our safari trip and we were bowled away by the luxuriousness of the crater lodge. We had no idea what to expect given the fact this was our first stay in a place with a butler. KK was great he tended to our every need which were not many... Nature did a good job...
