Safari & Zanzibar Destination Overview,

You will be met by Ecological wilderness safari guides after clearing customs and migration formalities and transferred to Ngaresero Mountain Lodge.

In the main house are two suites approximately 55 square meters. These shares the main balcony and the Kilimanjaro view.

Thick walls, heavy timber beams and period décor impart comfort and charm.

The snows of Kilimanjaro form a splendid backdrop for a sundowner on the verandah and watching the changing colors of the glaciers is an unforgettable experience.

Four full days of excitement awaits you as you depart from the Camp at sunrise in order to capture the dawn activities, and the early morning light. You will return to Camp for a late breakfast , and have an opportunity to relax in the Camp – enjoying your natural environment watching a heard of Impala wander not far from the Camp before going for your afternoon game drive

The spacious verandah in front of your room is furnished with comfortable safari chairs and tables - the perfect retreat for a relaxing moment watching a weaver bird building its nest in a nearby Acacia tree, a herd of impala grazing quietly only meters away, or simply relaxing and listening to the sounds of the African bush.

Bathroom is complete with a dressing table with fully plumbed washbasin, lavatory and showers – a new, and often surprising, interpretation of ‘camping’. Hot water is available throughout the day and evening and, like your laundry, morning tea or in fact your every need will be arranged by your Butler allowing for a refreshing wash, shower or maybe a shave on the verandah of your tent.

Cuisine under canvas is exceptional, using only fresh ingredients, original recipes and with beautiful presentation our camp chefs never cease to amaze our guests.

Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most spectacular and certainly the most unique game-viewing destination on Earth. A perfectly-formed sunken caldera, ringed by 2000 foot high walls and inhabited by as wide a cross-section of wildlife as lives on the continent of Africa. We will take today to explore this awe-inspiring natural amphitheatre in full, using our 4WD safari-viewing vehicles to full effect in order to investigate every eco-system and pocket of the finest game-viewing destination on the planet.
