Fodor's Review

Scattered through the winding pathways of a 750-acre coffee plantation that was once owned by a 19th-century German settler are a series of thatched cottages nestled around a generous main farmhouse. After a dusty day of game-viewing take time out to sit by the pools, take a garden tour, or enjoy the views over the valley facing the Oldeani volcano. Only 5 km (3.1 miles) from the Ngorongoro Lolduare gate, the lodge has rooms that are tastefully decorated, spacious, and

include log fires and verandas to while away the evenings. Food is sourced from the beautiful gardens surrounding the working farm and served as either a buffet or a set menu. Ask for a valley-facing room; it is some distance from the main lodge but the views are worth it.
