Located on the crater rim of Ngorongoro, Lemala Ngorongoro Tented Camp offers ready access to the crater and its stunning wildlife, while bypassing the normal crowds.
Eight canvas tents provide the ultimate in camping luxury, and a family tent comfortably accommodates a family of five. Each tent has been placed on solid wood flooring covered with rugs and has been furnished with a gas heater, two queen-sized beds with a warm duvet, 24-hour solar lighting, and a dressing area. The en-suite bathroom features flush toilets, large safari showers and plenty of running water. A private veranda is furnished with outside loungers from which to enjoy early morning teas and coffees and refreshing afternoon gin and tonics.
The camp is located in an acacia forest of the rim of Ngorongoro. Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest, inactive, and completely intact caldera. Apart from the main caldera, Ngorongoro contains two other volcanic craters: Olmoti and Empakai, the first is famous for its spectacular waterfalls, and the latter houses a deep lake and verdant, green walls. Dense forests fed by the fertile volcanic earth provide a home for over 25,000 resident mammals from predators to prey. Here guests can spy large herds of wildebeest, buffalo, zebras, and Thomson’s gazelles as well as their predators the cheetahs, jackals, lions, and hyenas. The forest, marshes, and highland meadows are also a favorite of the elephants.
