When To Visit The Ngorongoro Crater:

This lodge has a very good location and is both spacious and comfortable, however it does not give the more personal experience offered by some of the smaller lodges.


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.

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. 

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.

"This property may be large and somewhat lacking in character but the rooms are great and the location for Ngorongoro is the best off the Crater rim."
