Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge

Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge

The comfortable Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge is located on the eastern rim of the Ngorongoro Crater at an altitude of 2300 meters. From there you have a wonderful view of the crater 600 meters below.

Since the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge is far away from the other lodges on the rim of the crater, you can use a second, little-used access road into the crater. The narrow dirt track leads steeply down to the crater floor.

The lodge is divided into individual houses whose architecture is reminiscent of traditional Maasai huts. In the main building, the heart of the complex, there is an impressive lobby with a glass dome and a restaurant with a panoramic view of the crater. Traditional and modern African cuisine is served.

The rooms are housed in two-story bungalows with thatched roofs. Each bungalow has two bedrooms, the double rooms look directly onto the crater through a glass front. The facility meets international standards and offers its guests every comfort. Each dressing area with wardrobe, large queen-size beds, rocking chair with small table and gas heating. The bathrooms have a ceramic washbasin, a shower and a flush toilet. Running hot and cold water is available.

In front of the main building is a kidney shaped swimming pool with unobstructed views of the crater. There are sun loungers around the pool.

This lodge is approximately 4 hours drive from Arusha, the last half hour along the crater rim to the camp. Alternatively, you can fly to Lake Manyara Airstrip. From it is another 60-minute drive.
