          No visit to East Africa is complete without spending a few nights at the Ngorongora Crater Lodge - situated on the rim of the crater itself and overlooking 100 square miles of open plain and woodlands housing thousands of animals of all African varieties. The lodge itself is an amazing mix of Italian architecture, colonial-Hemingway accessories and Massai tribal influence. Elegant yet casual! Fabulous dining and top quality guest service - even the masseuse comes to your room with her table balanced carefully on her head as she relaxes you in your room but with the crater floor in your view!

          Everything they say about this flagship property for andBeyond is true. Amazing views, food, people and rooms. As travel/food journalistAnthony Bourdain said "even the loo has a view!". The prices match the lofty standards of this property so be aware. Most people will stay 2 nights so they have one full day down in the caldera. I thoroughly recommend Crater Lodge but understand that it doesn't represent the true "African" experience. If you don't want to rough it in any way (apart from the drive to and from the caldera) then this place is for you. My preference is a tent and hanging out under the stars around a fire listening to the sounds of the bush.

          Flew over the crater and again had to marvel at its sheer size. Hundreds of millions of years since any eruption and it is a 4-500 sq. km crater inhabited by 35,000 animals of all kinds. It is lush forest on the top and sides but a flat hot and shade less (almost) plains in the centre.

          Saturday 17 June - We arrived back from a 3 night, 4 day safari yesterday.

          Day 1 – The day started at a very un-respectful 5am wake up. Luckily, for once, the mosque woke us up! The drive from Moshi to Lake Manyara, our starting point, took about 4 hours so we arrived at our lodge at about midday before continuing onto Lake Manya...

          We began the second phase of our safari tour on Monday, when we crossed the border from Kenya to Tanzania. We have a new Soviet-era truck, this one with an official name: Christie. Christie does not always want to start. (After the tour, we hear that Christie died in Malawi. So glad we peeled off the group in Dar.)
