The first time your safari vehicle climbs up the steep slopes and crests the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater and you look down 3,000 feet into the crater, teeming with wildlife, I guarantee the word ‘wow’ or something similar will escape from your mouth.
And your reaction will be something very similar when you enter @Beyond’s Ngorongoro Crater Lodge for the first time.
The setting is incredible with views into the crater and an outdoor dining area from which to enjoy them. The communal areas take you on a roller-coaster ride across eras as well as continents with French baroque fittings, gilt mirrors and wooden panelling blending with tribal Africa.
I’m not even sure how to describe the dining room………….
Each of the suites has butler service, bathrooms with chandeliers and stunning views.
You have to see this stunningly elegant, eclectic, some may say ‘odd’ property for yourself.
