Kitela Lodge

Discover Kitela Lodge

Kitela Lodge, within the incredible highlands of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, rises up on the hillside of a valley with beautiful views of a coffee plantation and a waterfall. The lodge is a great base from which to explore the Ngorongoro Crater and the surrounding area.

The rooms are at ground level with a private terrace or balcony overlooking the gardens and/or coffee plantation. The main building consists of a restaurant, lounge and a large terrace with spectacular views of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. There's an outdoor swimming-pool. The restaurant offers market style choices with locally grown produce on the farm.
