Exploreans is one of the latest additions to the Ngorongoro Highland region and is becoming a firm favourite. With its proximity to the Crater gates, luxurious accommodation and reasonable rates, it is hard to find many negatives. As long as you are willing to forgo the more traditionally built and decorated lodges, you can’t go far wrong in terms of location and comfort.

Exploreans Ngorongoro Lodge – The Facts

Exploreans is situated in the Karatu area of the Ngorongoro Highlands, just down the road from the gates of the Ngorongoro Crater. It has a spectacular 50 acre plot that gives its 20 cottages incredible views over the breathtaking local scenery.

The lodge is very new in design and has a large main area that houses its bar and restaurant. The cottages have all neatly been built in rows from local sources. They’re extremely well presented and clean as a whistle inside. A series of small luxuries such as the ‘pillow menu’ will make your stay very comfortable indeed. It is definitely not a ‘traditional’ safari lodge as it is not discreet with its Spa and swimming pools and could be accused of being slightly gaudy. However, for someone looking to come back to the luxuries in life after a long day in the crater it’s perfect.

Prices start at $ 356 per person
