Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania
With old-world architecture, elegant décor and a sophisticated ambience, Elewana The Manor at Ngorongoro is a classy lodge perfect for a more tranquil retreat in Tanzania. Only 20 minutes away from Ngorongoro Crater, we love The Manor’s myriad of activities and traditional glamour.
Built on a coffee plantation, the lodge’s surroundings are simply stunning. From picnicking on the manicured gardens, to enjoying a horseback ride through the countryside, the acres of land make for a peaceful stay.
There are 18 rooms altogether, nestled within nine cottages. Each room has a cosy fireplace and a large bathroom with a Victorian bathtub, as well as a double bed and chic country-style décor. There is also one Cottage perfect for families, with three smart bedrooms, a comfortable lounge area, and three bathrooms.
It’s not just the rooms that ooze grandeur. We love the lounge that creates a homely country feel, and nothing beats tucking into a succulent five course meal in the glamorous dining room, or enjoying a posh high-tea in the afternoon.
The activities make this lodge stand out to us even more. From horse riding and mountain biking, to bird watching and visiting Lake Manyara National Park full of flamingo, there’s so much to do during your stay. Our favourite has to be the game drive to Ngorongoro Crater – with a private breakfast or lunch at the bottom of the crater, you’ll get a truly unique experience at this spectacular geological area.
