Picturesquely placed on the Eastern rim of Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater, the rustic Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge is the unrivalled value for money way to experience the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The only form of tourist accommodation on the Ngorongoro Crater’s Eastern Access Road, the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge offers impressive views of the Crater’s savannah plains, forests and mountains.
The simple and affordable accommodation consists of 92 double bedrooms, each equipped with 2 queen size beds, and six single rooms all with en suite bathroom facilities and all rooms open outwards onto private glass fronted verandahs with superb panoramic views of the Ngorongoro Crater floor filled game.
The elegantly designed restaurant and main dining hall is housed under a local styled thatch roof and serves up a delightful African flavoured culinary and dining experience which you can enjoy whilst overlooking the magnificent views which speak to the lodge’s incredible location.
The Lodge boasts the only pool on the crater rim and the sparkling pool, lodge gardens and vast green lawns are the idyllic setting in which to sip on a cocktail as you watch the African sun sink below the Ngorongoro Crater rim dyeing the sky a kaleidoscopic array of fierce colours before disappearing for the day.
Known as Africa’s ‘Garden of Eden’, the Ngorongoro Crater is rich in wildlife with the Big 5 being spotted in a single game drive. The 8 300 km2 reserve is the world’s only unbroken volcanic caldera and is also one of the few places left to still view the endangered black rhino in the wild. 4×4 game drive safaris and guided walks with expert rangers through the Crater highlands allow you the most opportune way to explore this wildlife haven. Alternatively, other activities at the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge include day trips to the Olduvai Gorge as well as the chance to view the fluttering flocks of the Flamingo Frosted Soda Lake in the neighbouring Empakaai Crater.
The excellent service, spectacular views and incredible wildlife encounters available at the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge are the complete Ngorongoro Crater safari experience at an affordable price.
