Just inside the park boundaries our location permits early game drives down to the crater leaving you almost alone to discover this World Heritage Site. Up to 25.000 animals call the crater their home except the Maasai Giraffes who cannot cope with the steep slopes of the crater.
 
The main attraction, and also the most elusive are the 23 Black Rhinoceroses that live inside the crater, maybe the one and only chance to see them in the wild. Masai Bomas are located a few kilometres away for those who wish to meet the Maasai.

It’s famous floor-to-ceiling windows face the setting sun (African sunsets being rivaled only by African sunrises for sheer spectacle).

The Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge sits on the rim’s highest point, looking 1,600 feet down to the 100 square-mile, animal-thronged caldera of the once-fiery, now sublimely peaceful, volcano.

A great lodge, paying happy respect to one of the world’s greatest natural masterpieces.

Brightly flowered walkways lead to our double-bedded, fully amenitied rooms, furnished in traditional African motifs and wooden ceilings—and a memorable Sopa touch: a solarium from which to sip early morning coffee, gazing down at the awakening crater, into which we’ll soon wend for a game drive.
