Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge
is located in the Ngorongoro Crater
area of Northern Tanzania
This large lodge is situated close to the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, surely the most impressive geological feature in Africa. It is a relatively reliable facility, with a nice swimming pool and great views of the sunset over the crater and is relatively well priced. Vehicle safari into the Ngorongoro Crater itself is the main activity, with walking and cultural activities also possible.
The main potential downsides are that the lodge is of a rather old fashioned and unattractive design and is very large in size, with an incredible 98 guest rooms. The lodge is open to vehicles from all safari companies, is commonly used by mini-buses and is very low on authentic safari atmosphere. Guest are also inherently exposed to the high levels of visitor traffic that can be present in the crater. UpsidesDownsidesSeasonsPricesTrips
