With few other vehicles, this area will feel like your own private Serengeti. While the camp itself is sheltered in the riverside thickets and provides beautiful views of a river bend inhabited by hippo, game drives venture out into the wide-open plains, where guests can enjoy Serengeti landscapes in open 4×4 safari vehicles with canvas canopies. The area is particularly rich in predators, with massive lion prides and extensive clans of hyena – numbering up to a hundred – frequently spotted. The river also attracts large herds of buffalo and elephant, while the open plains are the ideal habitat for cheetah. Riverside drives are bound to spot the massive crocodiles that the area is renowned for, while birders will be amazed by the number of endemic species spotted throughout the area.

Alternatively, enjoy the day’s game-viewing activities and a leisurely lunch on the pool deck. Lounge in the comfortable interiors or find a spot on your shaded private deck to laze the afternoon away. End the day under an African star-studded sky around the crackling fire.

As the lodge is situated on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, it takes some time to reach the crater’s floor for game drives, and after return to the lodge. As such, you’ll most likely be offered the choice of one morning or afternoon game drive per day. You will descend into the crater through a lush highland forest, with magnificent birdlife to be spotted among the different tree species. Once on the grassy crater floor, you may discover a large variety of grazing herbivores, as well as the predators that are attracted by this abundant supply of prey.
