Set high up on the side of the Olmoti Volcano and within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is where you’ll find The Highlands. A unique lodge consisting of just eight perspex and canvas doom suites with huge bay windows giving guests the most wonderful views of the surrounding crater and forest.
The Ngorongoro crater is a natural wonder created some three million years ago from a collapsed volcano creating an ecosystem in itself within the Serengeti. Due to these unique circumstances an extraordinary concentration of predators call this place home. The soda lakes that fill the smaller craters are homing beacons for thousands of pink flamingos that line the shores of this truly magical place.
The accommodation at The Highlands consists of just eight unique Perspex and canvas doom suites, each includes a twin or king size bed facing a huge bay window, an indoor seating area with luxurious soft furnishings and wood burning stove. The en-suite facilities include a large indoor shower, double vanities and separate w.c.
Step out into your wooden veranda and relax with a refreshing drink and admire the stunning view.
Two family suites are also available.
