Night 4: Ngorongoro Rhino Lodge / Forest view room

This luxury lodge is on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater. The hotel was originally the home of the first Ngorongoro conservator. The place is run in association with the Maasai community that lives in the area. It is easy to see grazing buffaloes in the hotel gardens.

Found more than 2,000 meters high, you will be at the edge of the crater, which will make the nights cold, so you will be thankful to sleep in a closed hotel on your sixth night, unlike previous nights in tents.
