Our stay in Crater Forest was just good. We were having evening tea at our balcony, while enjoying the sunset over the forest of Ngorongoro. This is really a breathtaking sight. My husband and I loved it.
The tents are clean, and big enough, though the bathrooms are somewhat basic. We had to wait a long time before the water warmed up, but in the end we could both have a hot shower which was very welcome. It can become quite cold here in the night, so the staff lit our fire place in the room before we went to sleep. That was nice, though a little Smokey in the beginning.
The ride here was quite bumpy, but we were told that it is also possible to walk to the camp after your safari. So for anyone still going: we would recommend arranging this in advance!
The food was alright, we actually enjoyed it. The cutleries were clean, glass clean. We can’t really complain about anything. The highlight for me was the setting, overlooking this valley with tropical forest.
