Set off after breakfast and make your way up the escarpment to the Ngorongoro Crater Lodge. At the eastern edge of the vast Serengeti the great buttressed slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater raise up through lichen covered forests to an altitude of 7000 feet above sea level. Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wild life havens left on earth. Some of Africa's last black rhino are potential within its rim, black maned lions stalk the grass lands flamingos crowd the soda lakes and elephant wonder the forests. Towering euphobians cling to the crater walls and the floor and fever and fig tree forest give shade to an awe- inspiring array of creatures. Perched on the edge of the ancient crater rim above the cool, swirling mists is the architectural masterpiece of the Ngorongoro Crater Lodge a magnificent return to the noble elegance of the traveling colonials. Inspired in design by the Masai Manyatta three separate camps of six to twelve suites each recall a bygone era. Each sumptuous suite, steeped in centuries of romance is discreetly tented by a personal butler, who will bring you tea in bed, stoke your fireplace and even draw your bath, ready for your return from your days safari, lavish picnic on the crater floor or visit to the cradle of man kind, The Olduvai Gorge and shifting sand. Spend two nights at the Ngorongoro wildlife Lodge.
