The Manor at Ngorongoro provides the perfect environment to relax and take in the outstanding natural beauty of its gardens and the coffee-bush laden hills. However the drama that is Africa is but a short distance away.
Ngorongoro Crater is famed as being the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’, and is a ‘must see’ on anyone’s itinerary. This extinct volcano – with its 18-kilometre wide crater floor – is home to an abundant and unique ecosystem that encompasses almost all of the wildlife that you would wish to see in Africa. This spectacular setting is a ‘once-in-a- lifetime’ opportunity to experience the rawness and beauty of Africa’s natural flora and fauna.
The Manor at Ngorongoro, located in the north west Tanzania and with its 9 luxurious cottages (18 Suites), family cottage, and magnificent main Manor House, is one of the first safari lodges of its kind to blend East African hospitality with old-world Afro-European architecture and decor. Located adjacent to the famous Ngorongoro conservation area and within a 1500-acre Arabica coffee estate, The Manor is reminiscent of an elegant up-country farm home in the Cape Dutch-style of architecture.
Each of 18 Manor Cottage Suites has its own private entrance, and adjoining private sun terrace. A double open-fronted log-burning fireplace divides a room interior that mirrors the traditional Cape Dutch architecture. The en suite bath and shower room possesses a Victorian-style claw-footed bath, as well as twin vanity basins and large ‘rainfall’ shower.
The Stable Cottage is the family cottage, located to the rear of the riding stables, separate from the main Manor house. In the mornings, breakfast can be served, if requested, in the adjacent courtyard. The Stable Cottage also possesses a small separate dining area, with a lounge and fireplace that can be used for intimate and private dinners and lunches.
Stable Cottage is divided into two floors. On the ground floor you will discover a richly-furnished Master Bedroom and a Twin Bedroom, each with their own individual bathrooms. Each bathroom boasts a luxurious Victorian bath, rain shower and a fireplace, the latter of which can be lit on request. On this same floor there is a beautifully appointed joint Family Lounge area which serves as a perfect place to gather and share stories of the day’s events and to plan the adventures to come.
Heading upstairs to the Stable Cottage’s second level, one enters the children’s domain comprising of a Children’s Twin Room, a ‘Toddlers Bathroom’ and a satellite TV Playroom.
The Stable Cottage is the ideal location to accommodate a family or group of friends in comfort and privacy during a stay at The Manor at Ngorongoro.
