Tloma Lodge

Discover 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. 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.

There are 36 chalet type bedrooms with a private terrace or balcony which overlook the gardens and/or the coffee plantation. The main guest area is in a colonial farmhouse style. You can enjoy delicious home cooked meals which are served either in the main building or alfresco lunches can be taken at the pool. For a slightly more intimate affair private picnics can be arranged. Activities from the lodge revolve around guided walks, which take in the spectacle of the crater and the local culture. However, you can also indulge in a full body massage back at the lodge, always well received after a long day exploring.
