The Manor In A Coffee Estate: A Luxury Lodge Adjoining The Ngorongoro Crater
The Manor at Ngorongoro is one of the first safari lodges of its kind to blend East African hospitality with old-world Afro-European architecture and decor.
Perfectly positioned adjacent to the famous Ngorongoro conservation area, all within a 1500-acre Arabica coffee estate, The Manor is reminiscent of an elegant up-country farm home in the Cape Dutch style of architecture.
The Manor at Ngorongoro provides the perfect environment to relax and take in the outstanding natural beauty of its gardens and the coffee-bush-laden hills. However, the drama that is Africa is but a short distance away.
The Ngorongoro Crater is only minutes from the lodge and provides some of the best game-viewing in Tanzania. Game drives are conducted twice a day, horseback riding, guided coffee tours and estate walks can all be enjoyed, while the bar and lounge with open fireplace beckon guests to relax after an eventful day exploring this unique area.
Rooms and Suites
Each of the 18 Manor Cottage Suites 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 en-suite bath and shower room possess a Victorian-style claw-footed bath, as well as twin vanity basins and a large 'rainfall' shower.
The Stable Cottage is the family cottage located to the rear of the riding stables, separate from the main Manor house. With 3 bedrooms, 2 floors, and a small separate dining area, with a lounge and fireplace for intimate and private dinners and lunches.
The Manor at Ngorongoro is perfect for large families or even small groups of friends.
- Open Fireplace in Each Cottage
- Careful positioning of the guest cottages ensures privacy and intimacy
Cuisine and Wine
Breakfast is offered in various guises depending on what you are after, continental, full English, or even a packed breakfast should you be leaving early on a game drive.
Lunch is offered at the lodge from an à la carte menu that will certainly not disappoint; there is even an option to have your lunch at a site on the Ngorongoro Crater floor close to wildlife.
Dinner at The Manor at Ngorongoro is a silver service 3-course affair and is hosted either indoors or outdoors, weather and temperature-dependent, of course. Private dining options are available on request at either a quaint location or on one's private verandah.
More of a country farm styled in classic Cape Dutch-style architecture, the main guest area is designed with guests' comfort in mind. It is here inside where one finds the main dining area, a lounge with a fireplace and grand piano, and a small bar with high leather stools.
Outside, there is a large patio dotted with tables and chairs; it is here that one eats lunch and enjoys a drink with views out over the tropical gardens.
The Manor at Ngorongoro offers its guests a variety of facilities to make their stay comfortable and enjoyable.
These include a billiard room and TV room, both with comfortable seating and cable television; a swimming pool; the manor spa, which offers a variety of treatments; a private wine cellar; free WiFi in all public areas; 2-way radios for communicating with staff; a boutique shop; wedding and honeymoon facilities; laundry and valet service.

Spa and Wellness
True deep tissue massage can be one of the most therapeutic and healing massages. Although not as rhythmic as other massage types, deep tissue massage interacts the most with the body's muscle groups. Sore and tired muscles often become revived and energized, feeling as if they have had a strenuous yet impactful workout.
The Manor at Ngorongoro is a luxurious safari lodge that offers guests elegant accommodations, first-class cuisine, and plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained.
Located in the heart of Tanzania's stunning wildlife preserve and within a few minutes of the Ngorongoro Crater, this lodge provides an unforgettable experience for all who visit.
