Set in 50 acres of virgin Tanzanian bush in the Ngorongoro volcanic landscape, the Neptune Ngorongoro Lodge (formerly Exploreans Ngorongoro Lodge) is located practically on the doorstep of the entrance gate to the iconic Ngorongoro Crater, said to have the most dense concentration of wildlife in Africa.
Game drives into the Ngorongoro Crater begin early in the morning. The descent into the crater is one of scenic beauty as you make your way through lush forests, home to numerous elephants and buffalo.
As you reach the inside of the Ngorongoro Crater, marvelling at the incredible landscape around you, your guide will take you through the grassy crater floor, the unbelievable fever tree forest, the banks of Lake Magadi and the surrounding marshes.
Lunch is served picnic style, surrounded by the natural wonders around you as well as the exceptional wildlife, roaming freely, with which you share this extraordinary paradise.
This all inclusive property features 20 spacious private en-suite log cabins with an open fire place in the bedroom, and a living room with a large private viewing terrace.
The main lodge area has a restaurant with an outdoor terrace, and a bar.
Guests can also indulge in moments of relaxation at the swimming pool or at the Mvua African Rain Spa after a full-day game drive.
