Discover Osonjoi Lodge

Scheduled to open in March 2025 Lemala Osonjoi Lodge is the latest addition to the Lemala portfolio and completes a remarkable circuit of lodges, commencing in Arusha at Hamerkop House by Lemala progressing via Mpingo Ridge in Tarangire,Osonjoi Lodge in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and ending with Nanyukie and Kuria Hills in the Serengeti.

The world’s largest intact volcanic caldera, the Ngorongoro Crater and its surrounding highlands are universally recognized as some of the best, most reliable wildlife areas on the continent.

Lemala Osonjoi is conveniently located close to the Lemala Gate – a more gradual access road with game viewing en route.

The eastern quadrant of the Ngorongoro Crater sees fewer visitors than the west, especially first thing in the morning and last thing in the afternoon – those critical hours when game viewing is at its best.


Wildlife experiences at Osonjoi Lodge

As Africa’s game is most active in the early morning and late afternoon this means better wildlife experiences for Lemala guests. Game drives from camp may start as early as 6.00am and guests can be down among Ngorongoro’s abundant wildlife on the floor within 10-15 minutes – crucial for photographers who demand the best light conditions. Escorted walks are also available into the forest and along the crater rim with an armed ranger and Maasai guide.

Osonjoi is an easy and enjoyable scenic drive for guests arriving by road from an arrival overnight in Arusha, or from safari camps in Tarangire or Manyara National Parks or a thrilling landing at the Manyara Airstrip perched above a towering escarpment wall for those arriving by air. Located on a hill just back from the Crater rim, Lemala Osonjoi is named for the trees that characterize the area. Osonjoi trees have both symbolic and medicinal significance for the Maasai. Chosen by the Lemala staff we are proud to use a name that signifies bringing multiple benefits to the land and people of East Africa – a central tenet to all the Lemala stands for.



The suites at Lemala Osonjoi are some of the most spacious and airy in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. They accommodate one king-size bed and, as it can get cool on the Ngorongoro Crater rim at night, little luxuries like a slow burning wood stove, warm winter-weight duvets, and hot water bottles ensure a cozy night’s sleep. The roomy en-suite bathrooms contain a dressing area, flush toilet and a large walk in shower. There is also large picture windows, beautiful views over the local forest just back from the Ngorongoro Crater rim. Windows are designed to allow the beautiful Ngorongoro highland’s light to flood in to this cozy haven.

  • The 20 luxurious guest suites (16 standard suites + 2 x 2 bedroomed suites) are spaced well apart for maximum privacy.
  • Triples are available on request, and the two bedroomed suite is perfect for families or friends.
  • Features include an oversized bed, spacious lounge, and generous bathroom with double vanity, indoor and outdoor showers and free-standing bathtub. Guest will especially enjoy the ‘secret’ nook, an especially designed day bed- the perfect spot to enjoy some quiet time with a book, a glass of red – one hot chocolate – at the end of an exciting safari day.
  • The main double-volume area features a comfortable lounge and bar, outdoor viewing deck with a roaring fire and access to an indoor heated swimming pool.
  • Osonjoi in one of very few Ngorongoro properties that can provide full catered lunches at a special private site down on the cater floor, a privilege in itself these special celebrations allow guests to spend an entire safari day on the Crater Floor – in comfort


A separate spa suite among the trees offers guests a secluded location to indulge themselves, treated by our expert therapists who are dedicated to enhancing well-being and helping guests to unwind amongst the views of forest.

这是我住过的最漂亮的地方之一。我无法用文字来形容它。塔兰吉雷公园是一个非常特别的地方,而 Mpingo Ridge 是欣赏这一切的最佳营地。从营地望出去,景色美不胜收,独一无二。房间宽敞舒适。白色和自然的装饰非常适合非洲。不过,我们逗留期间的最大亮点是工作人员的亲切和友善。他们是我住过的酒店中最热情好客的。他们让我们感觉就像家人一样,离开时我们都很舍不得! 



我们为我妻子的生日在那里住了两晚,他们帮我完成了有史以来最棒的生日惊喜。房间很棒,食物很棒,工作人员也很到位。领班 Juma 确保我们得到了周到的照顾。说到物有所值,就是这样。


Lemala Nanyukie

这个地方看起来非常棒,工作人员也非常好,都是非常热情的人。 如果你正在寻找一个与大自然亲密接触的地方,这里就是。在这里,你可以听着森林的声音入睡。从山顶俯瞰,景色美不胜收。尽管气温很低,但一切都非常舒适!这里的食物也非常美味!我还会再来的!
