GUIDE ON NGORONGORO SOPA LODGE IN TANZANIA
For the spectacular view alone, Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge would be an enviable home base for a vacation in Tanzania. Set alone, high on the eastern rim of Ngorongoro Crater UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge caters for cost-conscious explorers for whom rich wildlife, beautiful surroundings and a view from the crater rim are more important than luxurious living or a tented experience. But Sopa Lodge offers unusual standards of design and convenience for AfricanMecca guests. Steeply rising terraces of thatched rondavels are accessed by stepped walks between walled flower beds in a landscaped setting against a backdrop of rain forest, inhabited by a wide variety of African fauna in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Here, native Maasai herdsmen lead their cattle to graze in a balanced ecosystem designed for the sustainable co-habitation of pastoralists, indigenous animals and the tourists whose desire for a wilderness experience on an African holiday makes it all possible. Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge sits almost 7500 feet above sea level and 2,000 feet above the floor of a ten-mile wide collapsed volcanic cauldron where a plethora of magnificent animals live in a balanced microcosm of varied habitats: deceptively harmless-looking hippopotamus wallow in the marshes; massive horned buffalo wander by the swamp and plains, reclusive leopard and inquisitive monkeys inhabit the fever-tree forests and stilt-legged pink flamingos pose in the central lake. The vast plains are home to wildebeest, buxom zebra, and graceful eland and gazelle, trailed by expectant prides of lion, heavy-bellied cheetah and slinking hyena, iconic wildlife images of a safari in Africa.

AfricanMecca's professionalism and care understands that what distinguishes Africa is its authenticity, the land, people and wildlife who do not share our world of fashion and fanfare that distinguish so many travel companies today.

I can't thank AfricanMecca Safaris and everybody that I met as part of my African Safari enough for the most incredible and unforgettable vacation of my life. The lodge at Ngorongoro Crater and Kirawira Camp in the Serengeti were magnificent.
