Where Is It Located
- Ngorongoro Rhino Safari Lodge is located in the Ngorongoro Crater area of Northern Tanzania. The lodge is situated at an altitude of 2,200 meters, a few hundred meters back from the rim of the Crater. What it loses in terms of outlook over the Crater, it more than makes up for with its views of untouched high montane forest with Mount Oldeani (3,200 metres) dominating the background, and Mount Makarot in the distance (3130 metres).
