General Information

The Rhino Lodge is located in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a few hundred meters from the crater rim. The Rhino Lodge offers quality and affordable accommodation in a spectacular setting. Its location is very convenient, being the first lodge as one enters the Ngorongoro Conservation Area from Arusha. It is the perfect location from which to explore the Ngorongoro Crater and it surroundings.

The lodge has 24 rooms, each able to accommodate two people, with an optional third bed. The rooms have simple furniture and an en-suite bathroom with a hot shower. Each room has its own veranda where guests can relax while enjoying the forest view. The room décor is very basic, using earth tones with splashes of red. Hardwood furniture is used and manufactured locally.

Rhino Lodge is operated in conjunction with the Pastoralists Council of the Ngorongoro – the governing body of the areas Maasai communities. The council works to ensure that the Maasai continue to live a traditional life, in harmony with their natural environment.

Each paying guest to Rhino Lodge is therefore directly supporting these communities and contributing to maintaining and protecting the unique balance between pastoralism and tourism.


Rhino Lodge is ideally located on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater rim.
