Tloma Lodge

Tloma Lodge is a comfortable, mid-range lodge situated on the eastern shoulder of the Ngorongoro Highlands, some 15 minutes from Ngorongoro Crater.

Tloma Lodge is located on the eastern shoulder of the Ngorongoro Highlands, an elevated position from where it enjoys sweeping views of the Ngorongoro coffee plantations and surrounding highland valleys. A new lodge, Tloma has a modern design, and features all the amenities you would expect from a comfortable hotel. The rooms are large, airy, and feature private verandahs that make the most of the views.

Tloma, much like its sister property Ngorongoro Farmhouse, has the appeal of a comfortable garden lodge. The grounds are large and the 36 private cottage rooms spread out widely within them, ensuring a good level of privacy. Tloma’s  standout feature is its heated swimming pool and terrace, which sits at the foot of the garden with a view of the Ngorongoro Highlands – the perfect spot to relax and admire the views!

Tloma is an ideal base from which to explore Lake Manyara National Park, as it is only a few minutes’ drive from the main park gates.


Tloma Lodge offers 36 large rooms, each with walk-in shower, a private verandah, and queen-size bed.

Tloma Lodge is the sister property to Ngorongoro Farm House. The facilities are more basic, but many will prefer the intimacy of Tloma’s private cottage rooms.


Meals are usually served buffet style either in the dining room or around the swimming pool. Private dining in your room can be arranged on request. Much of the produce is home grown organically at Tloma or nearby Ngorongoro Farm House.
