The Manor at ngorongoro
The Manor at Ngorongoro, with its luxurious cottages and magnificent Manor House, brings "old-world" opulence to a green and lush setting. Think cigars and brandy, elegant fine dining, and post dinner snooker. The Manor is one of the most lavish properties to enjoy on an East African safari; the rooms are cottage suites within manicured gardens, and each suite has a sitting room, fireplace and enormous bathroom. There is nothing like returning from a day out on safari to a hot bubbly soak in your Victorian bathtub.
An luxurious sanctuary, The Manor has a full spa, an inviting swimming pool, and a stable of horses by which to explore the surrounding coffee plantations and countryside.
The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most breathtakingly impressive sights to behold in Africa. Eighteen kilometers in diameter, the crater is a caldera formed at a time of volcanic eruption, and now home to an abundance of wildlife. Whether standing on the lip or driving through the grassy-plains of plentiful game inside, Ngorongoro Crater is magnificent from any angle.
The rim of the crater is lush, dewy mountain forest, met by leafy green coffee plantations sweeping up the slopes. The Manor is nestled into one of these coffee plantations, very close to the entrance to the Ngorongoro conservation area, allowing unhindred access to a day spent exploring this natural wonder.
Manor Cottage Suite Rooms
Each Manor Cottage Suite has its own private entrance, and adjoining private sun terrace. A double open-fronted log-burning fireplace divides a room interior that mirrors the traditional Cape Dutch architecture. The ensuite bath and shower room possesses a Victorian-style claw-footed bath, as well as twin vanity basins and large ‘rainfall’ shower.
The Stable Cottage
An exclusive family accommodation, The Stable Cottage has 3 guest bedrooms with 3 bathrooms. An expansive living area incorporates a lounge area, TV room and dining room. Guests can dine privately in the accommodation, and be thoroughly immersed in the enjoyment of those all too rare family holidays.
Activities & features:
Game drives in Ngorongoro Crater and Conservation Area
Ngorongoro Crater is unofficially the "Eight Wonder of the World". Visitors will understand instantly when they reach the first viewing point on the lip of the crater and take in the majesty of the ecological wonder.
Descending to the floor of the crater, guests are treated a magnificent wildlife spectacle as they traverse a variety of landscapes, from open grasslands dotted with game, soda lakes coloured pink with flamingo and dense riverine woodland, with the rising walls of the crater framing every view.

Horse riding is at an additional cost.
Day Excursions Lake Manyara National Park or Olduvai Gorge
Lake Manyara National Park is known for its astounding variety of landscapes for its relatively smaller size compared to other well-known parks on the Northern Tanzanian circuit. From dense forest, to soda lake wetland, open grasslands and acacia thickets, the variety is superseded only by the variety of wildlife found throughout.
Olduvai Gorge is one of the most important paleoanthropological sites in East Africa, and is famed as the place where Louis and Mary Leakey made some of the most important discoveries of early hominids.
