Fodor's Expert Review The Manor House

Ngorongoro Crater, Arusha, Tanzania Fodor's Choice

A charming mix of Afro-European Architecture from a bygone era greets you after a bumpy, dusty drive from the crater. Shake off your weary bones as staff pamper and cater to your every need. Your personal butler will escort you to your private cottage with sun deck, luxurious Victorian baths, fireplace, his and hers basins and a rainfall shower. Separated from the main manor house is the stable room, a two story family paradise perfect for those in groups or wanting to have a holiday with a difference for the kids-there is even a toddlers bathroom. You may never want to leave your room, but do try, because the main lodge is set around rolling hills and a working coffee plantation and has sophisticated and comfortable nooks to rest in and swap travel stories with your nearest and dearest. Make the time to relax around the gardens, get a massage from the spa, lounge by the pool or soak up the sun in any one of the beautiful vistas while enjoying some fine dining. As it is up on a hill it can be chilly during the evenings so bring an item of warm clothing.
