We stayed here for two nights and all of us (my husband and I and our friend with her teenage daughter) absolutely loved it. Our flight was delayed for two hours, when we arrived at the airstrip , our guide was waiting for us with the nicely packed sandwiches. We immediately felt better after a long delayed flight. As our jeep approached the entrance of the lodge, the manager led her staff danced a welcome Masai dance with drinks and warm towels. All this together with the breathless crater view turns our day into a much pleasanter one. We also liked the interior decoration of the lodge, the rooms as well as the lounge area. It is a mix of African and perhaps middle eastern/Turkish which is exotically luxurious and pleasing on the eye. When we returned from safari the next day, a warm bath filled with rose peddle with a bottle of champion was waiting for us. We enjoyed every minute of our stay here. Needless to say that this is not a cheap place, on the contrary, but it worths it to have once in a life time experience at a unique place like the Ngorongoro Crater.
