Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge
The Ngorongoro Crater is often called the 8th Wonder of the World. The crater was formed when a volcano collapsed creating the largest unbroken caldera on earth, almost 2,000 feet deep and 21 kilometers wide. Nearly 25,000 large mammals reside within the crater including some of Africa’s highest densities of lions and spotted hyenas. This is the best location in Tanzania to spot the highly endangered black rhino. Elephant, buffalo, zebra, and wildebeest are all common and within this confined habitat very close up viewing is often possible.
The Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge has an ideal location, as the only hotel on the east rim of the Crater it has commanding views into the Crater and is the only lodge situated to witness sunset across the Crater. Best of all it is perched by one of the only two access roads into the Crater and this road is used by only about 5% of the Crater traffic. This means you can take a picnic breakfast and be amongst the first to enter allowing you to get in faster and get more space away from the crowds for the prime early hours of the day. The hotel is comfortable and a good value for its outstanding location.
