Kensington Endoro is a lovely lodge and like all lodges in the highlands area, it serves a great purpose for those on safari around the Ngorongoro Crater and Manyara. It is great value and the rooms are superb.

However, we still recommend Plantation Lodge as the preferred alternative or Gibbs Farm if you’re looking to spend a bit more.

But if everywhere else is full, the Kensington Endoro does very well as a last resort option and will make no difference to your stay in this area.

Kensington Endoro -Ngorongoro 

This permanent lodge is set on the foothills of the Ngorongoro highland forest just outside of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

The location offers excellent access to the crater and Lake Manyara. Being close to Karatu also allows for trips to the local markets and cultural visits.

Eighteen spacious chalets feature canopy beds with integrated mosquito netting and oversized windows which allow cool breezes and loads of light.

Each chalet features several bed configuration options, from king to single, with valet service available.

Furnished with traditional and modern designs, each luxury room has its fireplace and bathroom complete with a jacuzzi-style tub and indoor & outdoor shower.

Double doors lead you to your private verandah with spectacular views of the sunrise and the Ngorongoro forest below.

Enjoy a pampered connection with nature, enhanced by the friendly and attentive service of their skilled staff before continuing your safari.
