With a westerly aspect to best appreciate magnificent East African sunsets, Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge sits on the highest point of the Ngorongoro Crater rim, well over 500m above the floor affording guests unrivalled views over the caldera. Decor at this rustic property is classic – with African woodcarvings and sculpture adorning the 97 comfortable rooms and public spaces. Every guestroom comes with a view, and hot water bottles tucked beneath the sheets during the evening turndown service.
The restaurant offers continental and local cuisine, while the welcoming bar has a large fireplace where you can enjoy a local beer or single malt whisky. The lobby lounge is another inviting place to unwind, offering premium coffees and teas grown in the cool Tanzanian highlands.
Recreational facilities at Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge include an outdoor pool. Activity options include naturally, game drives within the crater and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Maasai cultural interactions and visits to the nearby Empakaai Crater.
