Ngorongoro Rhino Lodge is located on the edge of Ngorongoro Crater rim offering the perfect base to explore the Crater.Coming from the East, Rhino is the first lodge after entering the Ngorongoro Conservation Area through the Loduare Gate.

From the lodge it is only 20 minutes to reach the Seneto descent road into the Crater, and the Lerai ascent road is less than 5 minutes drive away.

The Lodge

The lodge was originally a home of Ngorongoro first conservator, and its developers have maintained the house’s original rustic, low-impact style and natural setting.


The lodge boasts of 24 guest’s rooms with a private veranda overlooking a stretch of high montane forest. All the rooms have a shower, toilet and a hand basin.

To keep away the cold each room has a wood-burning stove, and hot water bottles can be filled if you want one.


In the bar/dining-room there are two large fires which are a natural focus where our guests like to meet and exchange stories of the day.

Hot, tasty food is available from the buffet. And after dinner our Maasai staff may entertain you with some traditional dancing.
