The Manor at Ngorongoro
Nestled adjacent to the breathtaking Ngorongoro Conservation Area within the 1,500 acre Shangri-La estate, The Manor at Ngorongoro is a one of a kind experience. The Manor at Ngorongoro is one of the first properties to fuse African hospitality with old world Afro European architecture and the décor embraces you in grandiose style surrounded by the natural splendour of the Tanzania highlands. The Manor is very much like an elegant up-country farm home with its Cape Dutch-style of architecture.
The Manor at Ngorongoro is a lovely place to stay as it has the best of both worlds being conveniently close to the drama of the Ngorongoro Crater but yet, set in peaceful surroundings of the natural beauty of its gardens and the coffee-bush laden hills. This way, guests can enjoy being in a home-away-from-home as well as the thrills of seeing the game in the famous Ngorongoro Crater.
The Manor has a full spa, an inviting swimming pool, and a stable of horses by which to explore the surrounding coffee plantations and countryside.
Cottage Suites at The Manor
Surrounded by fragrant flowering gardens and age-old trees, there are 18 luxurious cottage suites, all with open fires places which incorporate all the flavours and romanticism of Africa commanding breathtaking views of the landscapes. Careful positioning of the guest cottages ensures that every guest experiences the natural beauty of the estate as well as the privacy and intimacy characteristic of an old world manor home. Each cottage is ensuite with a Victorian-style claw-footed bath, as well as twin vanity basins and large ‘rainfall’ shower.
Each Manor Cottage Suite has its own private entrance, and adjoining private sun terrace. The double open-fronted log-burning fireplace divides a room interior that mirrors the traditional Cape Dutch architecture. The en suite bath and shower room possesses a Victorian-style claw-footed bath, as well as twin vanity basins and large ‘rainfall’ shower.
The Manor at Ngorongoro also has a Stable Cottage, which is a separate unit from the main Manor House so it is ideal for families or groups. It has its own small separate dining area, with a lounge and fireplace and is divided onto two floors. There are two bedrooms, both ensuite and lounge area on the ground floor and a further twin room with bathroom and main area upstairs.
