Eco-sensitive in materials, and low impact in architectural style, the Rhino Lodge offers guest comfortable lodging on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. Rhino Lodge works closely with the Ngorongoro Pastoral Council, the main governing council of the Maasai, and due to the relationship they can offer village visits. The staff of the lodge is made up of local Maasai and Iraqw tribesman, adding to the authentic experience on this Tanzania safari.
Twenty-four en suite rooms, each with private verandahs, are simply adorned to shift focus to the natural surroundings of the area. The main building was the home of Ngorongoro's first conservator, and any additions to the camp have been made in the same style to create a cohesive property. A combination of generators, batteries, and solar panels power the lodge, while wood burning fire places/stoves in the common areas, as well as the guest rooms, take the chill off the night air.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
