Stay at andBeyond Ngorongoro
Tucked beside one of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders, this boutique resort is where pastoral dreams are born and bred. The rim of Ngorongoro’s ancient caldera waits to welcome you. Even entering your camp suite is a grand affair, as you take in a mirage of chandeliers and Persian rugs, gloriously balanced with wooden walls and floors.Beyond the banana leaf thatched roof of your new home, wildlife runs free. The endangered black rhinos and tusked elephants roam. Expect spontaneous encounters with these majestic creatures, followed by fine dining and scenic evening baths. Curl up by the fireplace, exchanging stories. Who knows what surprises morning will bring?
