Driving into the Crater can be done only with a 4-wheel drive vehicle. If guests have not arrived with a suitable vehicle, it is possible to hire one locally.
The vehicles are owned and operated by local residents who usually charge US$200 for a day’s hire plus the Crater Entry fees of US$300 for the vehicle. The Lodge does not act as an agent in arranging these tours, but will be happy to put guests in touch with suitable operators.
The rules of the Ngorogoro Conservation Area Authority do not permit driving before 06.00hrs. and after 18.00hrs.
We are happy to provide packed lunches provided they are ordered the evening before.
