Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge
Perched on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater, the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge is a larger property but the only option on the eastern rim of this World Heritage Site, allowing for stunning sunsets.
Accommodating 186 guests in its 97 spacious en-suite bedrooms, the Lodge has its own private road to the crater floor. The Lodge is perfectly situated to explore the abundant game in what is often referred to as the “Eighth Wonder of the World”. Its location offers awe-inspiring views over the crater and some of the most breathtaking sunsets to be seen in Tanzania.Each suite has a private lounge with mini-bar, en-suite bathroom, central heating and a private solarium. The Lodge has telephone facilities, satellite TV, a conference room, and a swimming pool situated on the very edge of the rim.
The Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge isn’t our top pick in the area due to its larger size and lack of attentive service, but it’s a good option for those on a lower budget who also want to stay on the Crater rim.
