Property Details

Designed as an old-world farm house, The Manor at Ngorongoro comprises 20 whitewashed cottages surrounded by manicured gardens. Each abode features a private deck and courtyard, indoor and outdoor fireplaces and decors that meld antique colonial style with indigenous African handicraft. En-suite baths include a separate rain shower and tub, graciously appointed with a continuation of the colonial decor, plush bath linens, and a hair dryer.

The Manor at Ngorongoro’s common areas are equally as welcoming as the private suites, utilizing period-style furnishing and finishes to perpetuate the elevated colonial charm. Meals at the Manor Ngorongoro Crater hotel are sumptuous, fusing European standards and local flavors with red linen and white glove service and can be taken in the formal dining room, dining conservatory, or on the privacy of one’s own private suite deck. A swimming pool, art gallery, game room, piano lounge, and spa room with sauna and steam treatments rounds out the main building. Guided estate tours at the Manor at Ngorongoro reveal the gardens, wine cellar, on-site horse stables, and other hidden gems of the grounds.
