Set right on the edge of the stunning Ngorongoro Crater, the award-winning &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge offers truly spectacular views, but the interiors here are almost as striking as the exteriors. With sumptuous brocade sofas, chandeliers and panelled walls, the decor here is "Versailles meets Maasai", making this a perfect choice for a honeymoon or romantic getaway.
Accommodation is in 30 banana-thatched suites, filled with luxurious amenities and antique furnishings, including comfy leather chairs and enormous bathtubs.
You'll want to head out for a game drive to take in the crater's astonishing range of wildlife. There are 25,000 mammals living in the crater, as well as dozens of bird species, including great flocks of flamingos, and with a bit of luck you can sometimes spot all the "big five" in just one drive. Other activities here include performances of local music, guided nature walks, the chance to meet local hunter-gatherers and learn about their traditional way of life, and an exciting kids' club.
The attractive domed dining room is the perfect setting for a memorable meal, and you can also choose from a range of personalised dining experiences, including delicious picnic lunches on the crater floor.
