Known as the ‘Maasai Versailles’, this astonishing property overlooks one of Tanzania’s most remarkable wildlife destinations: the Ngorongoro Crater. Perched on the lip of the Crater, this is the absolute closest you can stay to this remarkable extinct volcano and its teeming wildlife. In terms of décor, this lodge pulls off what might seem an impossible task: combining almost extravagant design details with banana leaf ceilings and thatched roofs. Crater Lodge does this in some style, and all whilst adopting a reverential attitude to its setting. Each of the guest suites is raised on stilts for still more comprehensive views, which can be enjoyed even from the ornate and indulgent bathrooms. This has been described as the ‘lodge on top of the world’, which is almost certainly how you’ll feel when you’re here.
