Elewana Manor at Ngorongoro Enhances Their Crater Lunch

Elewana Manor at Ngorongoro has enhanced their private Crater lunch in the Ngorongoro Crater, and guests are absolutely loving it!

Elewana Manor at Ngorongoro has special permission to host their bush lunches in a private campsite area of the Crater, away from the crowds. All Manor lunches in the Crater, regardless if in a private campsite location,  are gourmet hamper affairs, under a shady awning from the side of the car, with tables and chairs.

Famous for the breathtakingly-impressive Ngorongoro Crater, the area is part of the volcanic mountain highlands of northern Tanzania. Eighteen kilometres in diameter, the crater is a “caldera” formed at a time of volcanic eruption, and now home to abundant wildlife. The rim of the crater is a lush, cool and dewy mountain forest with coffee plantations leading up to the conservation area boundary. The crater floor of open grasslands allows uninhibited viewing of the plentiful wildlife.

Together with the Serengeti National Park, this area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the crater is unofficially an “Eighth wonder of the world”. The unique nature of this area has made it a favorite safari destination! Visitors to the crater follow a specific procedure, carefully controlled by the park authorities, of climbing down the steep crater walls in the early morning to the grasslands – home to a myriad of wildlife species on the crater floor – and departing the crater by mid-afternoon.

The Manor at Ngorongoro is within a working coffee farm bordering the crater rim forest. Set amongst beautiful gardens and green coffee fields, guests have easy access to the wonders of the Ngorongoro Crater, and the lodge can provide a unique private picnic lunch experience on the crater floor.
