The Manor at Ngorongoro

  • In the Karatu area of northern Tanzania
  • An excellent base for exploring the Rift Valley
  • Very attractive, built in a Cape Dutch style
  • Twenty rooms in total, very luxurious and comfortable
  • The most expensive hotel in the region!
When To Visit The Ngorongoro Crater:
"The Manor is a superb lodge for clients wanting high levels of luxury without the high prices of the Ngorongoro Crater Lodge. A great option for Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater."


With horse rides through coffee estates, day trips to the Crater, and mountain biking just a few of the activities available here, you will feel infinitely entertained at The Manor at Ngorongoro. 


 The Manor is located in the Karatu area of northern Tanzania. It is a beautiful hotel and a superb base from which to explore Rift Valley, including Ngorongoro, Manyara and the surrounding villages.


The Manor is completely unique to Tanzania – it has certainly gained a reputation for its individuality. The 20 rooms and main areas are absolutely excellent, reminiscent of a luxurious hotel rather than a safari lodge. The Manor’s design seems to go down very well with clients who want to get away from the adventurous safari spirit found in the majority of lodges we use.

Our only negative points are that the Manor is, unfortunately, the most expensive hotel in the region, and that the drive to Ngorongoro is the longest of all to the Karatu lodges. However, we cannot deny that our clients have always enjoyed their stays here, and that the rooms are exceptionally good.

**Parents hoping for childcare at this property should be aware that any staff looking after children, do not have formal childcare or safeguarding training.**


  • We tend to use the Manor as a two-night base from which to explore the surrounding area.
  • Lake Manyara is within 30 minutes’ drive, while Ngorongoro is only an hour away.

*This property is unfenced and located in a wildlife area, so large and potentially dangerous animals do pass through. If you opt to stay here, always be alert when walking around the camp and request for a member of staff to escort you if you have any concerns. Any guest is escorted after dark as a matter of course.
