We are certain that once you have stayed here you won't want to come home!
Three intimate camps make up this spectacular lodge totalling just 30 safari suites. Each suite is filled with antiques, chandeliers and unique African treasures all adding to the romantic feel hidden away in handcrafted mud and thatch palaces! The bedroom, sitting room and ensuite bathroom all have floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the magnificent Crater below and are discreetly attended by a private butler.
The ensuite bathrooms wow just as much as the rooms themselves with a dramatic centrepiece of red roses, spacious showers and chandelier-lit bathtubs.
With seasonal sightings of flamingo on the soda lake to black rhino and magnificently tusked elephants a stones through from your suite window game drives will always be a memorable experience. From Crater floor banquets to to day trips to Olduvai Gorge and Shifting Sands you will certainly get your safari fix at this lodge.
