About The Manor at Ngorongoro

The Manor at Ngorongoro, with its luxurious cottages and magnificent Manor House, brings “old-world” grandeur to a green and lush setting. Think cigars and brandy, elegant fine dining, and post-dinner snooker. The Manor is one of the most lavish properties on the safari circuit; the rooms are cottage suites within the manicured gardens, and each suite has a sitting room, fireplace and enormous bathroom. There is nothing like returning from a day out on safari to a hot bubbly soak in your Victorian bathtub. Situated on one of the oldest coffee plantations in East Africa, and an area of Dutch settlement, the classical Cape-Dutch architecture of The Manor is a fitting tribute to the rich history of the area. The Manor has easy access to both the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara National Park, famed for its flamingos. A luxurious safari base, with a spa, swimming pool and stable of horses to explore the surrounding coffee plantations and countryside. The Manor also arranges special picnics and sundowners within the estate, and coffee tours for those interested in learning more about Tanzania’s famous coffee trade.
