Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge

Facing the always magnificent sunsets to the west and located at the highest point on Ngorongoro crater’s entire rim, Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge stands well over half a kilometre above the crater floor and offers unparalleled views across this enormous caldera.

Themed around traditionally circular African houses with conical roofs and decorated with examples of Africa’s rich tapestry of artistic traditions by way of rich woodcarvings and sculptures, the lodge harmonizes perfectly with its dramatic surroundings. But the drama does not just stop with the great outdoors: it also flows through the split-level interiors of the main building which all offer an unsurpassed generosity of space while somehow managing to combine an almost magically welcoming ambience of both warmth and cosiness.

Accommodation

Brightly coloured flowers of many species of shrubs border the paved pathways which lead away from both sides of the swimming pool to our guest rooms which are built to the same design. When you step through your door, you will probably hold your breath while you stare over the two queen size beds, and through the window walling of the lower level, enclosed solarium at the view of the crater beyond.

And the luxury doesn’t stop there. Because of its altitude the lodge can be chilly at night so each room has central heating; hot water bottles are placed in every bed during our evening turndown service; and our luxuriously appointed bathrooms have extremely spacious showers under which you can reminisce about the wonders of this awesome, almost magically mystical place called Ngorongoro.

 

Dining

Lemala Hill Restaurant

The Lemala Hill restaurant offers an exquisite culinary experience with a fusion of continental and local cuisine to cater for all palates. The restaurant is thoughtfully fitted with ceiling to floor glass walls that offer guests panoramic views of the crater as they enjoy an expansive buffet breakfast selection, lunch or dinner. Lunch and dinner are served A la Carte on select days of the week.

 

Crater View Bar

Get immersed in the décor, which is heavily influenced by rich earthy browns, African artifacts and depictions of Maasai warriors that have been deftly carved onto the towering pillars. The bar’s bold yet welcoming character conveys an infusion of the lodge’s pervasive afro theme and its natural surroundings. Whether you’re inclined towards refined single malt whiskeys, aged red wine or you simply crave the award-winning local beers, the Crater View Bar’s timelessly elegant fireplace offers the ideal place to cozy up during chilly evenings.
