Rhotia Valley (http://www.rhotiavalley.com/) is an unique project consisting of a luxury tented lodge, with all the facilities you need, and a Children’s Home, meant for those, who don’t have family to take proper care of them. It´s official opening was in November 2008. By staying at Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge, you directly contribute to the wellbeing of the children of the adjacent Children’s Home. While staying at the lodge, a visit to the children´s home is possible. The lodge consists of 15 en suite, new, highly comfortable tented houses, including 2, 3 or 4 beds, its own veranda and a bathroom with hot and cold running water, shower and flush toilet. Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge is situated halfway the Rift Valley Escarpment and Ngorongoro Crater, three miles off the main road from Arusha to Ngorongoro Crater at 1700 m, causing breathtaking views of the adjacent Ngorongoro Conservation Area forest, nearby villages and the terraced fields of the local farmers, within the background lake Manyara. Because of the height, malaria risk is minimized. The lodge is built in traditional African style. It is in complete harmony with its surroundings. Yet, its spacious set up, personal and friendly service and its finishing touches, such as cosy sofas around the fireplace and warm decorative details, provide a perfectly balanced luxury.
