Perched high on the wild side of Ngorongoro Crater, a place of biting winds and brutally hot sun, Entamanu Ngorongoro Camp is a unique tented camp that lets guests explore the wilds while protecting them from the elements.
The camp consists of six canvas tents raised on elevated platforms to reduce impact on the natural surroundings. Two of the tents are family units ideal for families with children. Bathrooms with hot showers, twin sinks, and flush toilets are included.
All tents are furnished for comfort and protection from the wild weather found on this side of the crater. Textured wool, down duvets, and heaters provide warmth in the sleeping tents against the chilly nights, whereas fully open-able fronts let the breezes in when the sun warms the tent up during the day. Big verandas wrap around the front of the rooms and the ideal place to sit and marvel at the view into the Crater. The tent’s interiors are made of sustainably sourced wood. In fact, everything within the camp is locally sourced and made by talented Tanzanian artisans.
The camp is perfectly situated on the Ngorongoro Crater Rim, a large, unbroken, non-flooded volcanic caldera formed three million years ago and now home to large populations of zebra and wildebeest, as well as lions and endangered black rhino. Surrounded by volcanic peaks, in a grove of acacia lahai trees swathed in feathery moss, the camp looks towards the sunrise over the Ngorongoro Crater and revels in stunning sunsets over the Serengeti Plains. The crater has often been called the eighth wonder of the world.
