Perched on a plateau in the Kiloki kopjes, Olduvai Ndogo is an intimate safari camp with spectacular views of Olduvai and the world famous Serengeti.
Accommodations at the camp consist of eight tents nestled amid the large granite rocks known as kopjes. Each spacious tent includes either a king or two twin beds. The en suite bathroom features a vanity sink, flush toilet, and shower with solar-powered water. There is one family unit which consists of two separate bedrooms. The tents are set on wooden platforms and include a private terrace with chairs and table allowing guests to relax and gaze at the panoramic views.
The camp is located in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area on the edge of Olduvai Gorge just a short donkey ride from its sister property, Olduvai Camp. Situated within northern Tanzania’s Serengeti Plains about 100 miles west of Arusha, Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Created when an ancient volcano erupted and then collapsed upon itself, the crater is now carpeted with expansive grasslands dotted by a few acacia trees. The natural enclosure is home to impressive varieties and concentrations of wildlife including some 25,000 mammals. In addition to the zebra, gazelle, and wildebeest that graze the plains, the region is home to all of Africa’s “big five” mammals: lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, and elephant. The uniqueness of the crater’s topography and the accessibility of its wildlife make it a prime tourist destination in northern Tanzania.
