Although the lodge is fairly luxurious and has high standards, we find it a little larger than we would like so prefer the more intimate setting of Plantation Lodge, Gibbs Farm or Escarpment Lodge. This is a fine lodge nevertheless.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Neptune Ngorongoro Lodge is set in its own 50 acres of bush very close to the main gate that enters the Ngorongoro Crater when travelling from Arusha. It is just a 20 minute drive away from the crater itself with its spectacular wildlife.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The lodge is made up of 20 spacious log cabins with open fireplaces in both the bedroom and living room, an en suite bathroom with a shower, a dining area and a large private viewing deck. The main lodge comprises a restaurant, bar, swimming pool and spa.
Game-viewing is superb as the Crater has one of the highest densities of wildlife to be found anywhere in Africa. Visits to Lake Manyara and Olduvai Gorge are also possible.
