This is a Tanzanian dish called ‘ndizi nyama’ (plaintains and meat) that we specially requested at dinner tonight. Irene, the camp manager at Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, patiently walked me through how to recreate back home with a clay pot and banana leaf. Watch this space! #ngorongoro#ngorongorocraterlodge#tanzania
Bucket List Restaurant #3
Now that's a view!
Dining at Crater Lodge, in Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania is truly beyond comprehension. As you take your box seat on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater, the views from the great migration of Tanzania, to the safari, the Crater Lodge offers a full spectrum of Tanzanian history in just one restaurant.
The Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is located in Tanzania on the edge of the world famous World Heritage Site of the Ngorongoro Crater. Surrounding the lodge, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area spans 8,300 square kilometres, stretching from the Rift Valley to the Serengeti. The Ngorongoro Crater is often called 'Africa's Eden' and the '8th Natural Wonder of the World’ and it is the largest unbroken un-flooded caldera in the world.
Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is a truly magical place is, offering sweeping views at every turn. The crater and its surrounding highlands form one of Africa’s most unforgettable landscapes, a primal place of rich grazing grounds for elephants, zebras, rare black rhinos, and seas of pink flamingos. At twilight, it's not unusual to hear a lion's roar waft up from the depths of the caldera.
After a day on safari in the crater or exploring the rim on foot, guests return to an unforgettable meal in this elegant restaurant and stay in the lodge, still enveloped in the mystique of the legendary Ngorongoro landscape.
The rains have started to come down here at Ngorongoro Crater, In the next few weeks the crater floor will transform from being dry and brown to being bright green fields filled with flowers.
The beauty of nature, rain brings freshness and new life to the Ngorongoro Crater.
The next few month will prove to be a photographer's dream due to the amazing contrasts and colours of the lanscape combined with amazing cat, big five and plains game sightings.
