the lodge is located immediately off the Ngorongoro crater. the room was very cozy, heated with a wood stove, with a nice balcony.
in the dining room there is a fireplace with sofas around, where you can share safari stories and trip impressions, and there's a big terrace.
During dinner, satisfactory, a family of elephants came right down the terrace, and they quietly began to dine there too. It was really amazing!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Rhino Lodge is ideally located on the edge of the Ngorongoro crater rim. The Lodge was originally the home of Ngorongoro’s first conservator, and its developers have maintained the house’s original rustic, low-impact style and natural setting. Rhino Lodge offers a perfect base from which to explore the Ngorongoro crater and its surroundings. Game drives into the crater, and, for the more adventurous, walking safaris in the forest reserve and visits to nearby Maasai villages, can all be arranged from the lodge. And, on return after a long day, 24 comfortable en suite rooms with forest views, a cozy living space, friendly local staff and generous African-inspired meals offer guests a warm welcome home. ... more less
