Tloma Lodge

Set in beautiful gardens Tloma Lodge boasts fantastic views of the Ngorongoro Crater's eastern wall and is the ideal base from which to explore the crater. Embracing a colonial style, the property is small and intimate; a peaceful retreat from the bustle of the outside world, nature surrounds the lodge with views of a cascading waterfall and a coffee plantation.

The main guest area is very pleasant possessing a warm homely feel and adorned with all manner of African artefacts. The lounge is comfortable and the pool is a welcome addition during the warmer weather, when a dip in the cool waters can be very relaxing. Guests can enjoy delicious home cooked meals which are served either in the main building or alfresco lunches can be taken at the pool. Meals are presented in buffet style with much of the produce used in the food home grown and fresh. For a slightly more intimate affair private picnics can be arranged.

Accommodation at the lodge takes the form of 36 rooms, divided between twin, triple, interconnecting and king room types. All rooms possess en-suite bathrooms with showers, private verandas and mosquito nets. Activities from the lodge revolve around guided walks, which take in the spectacle of the crater and the local culture. However, guests can also indulge in a full body massage back at the lodge, always well received after a long day exploring.
