Situated on the edge of the mountain forest hugging the Olmoti volcano to the north of Ngorongoro Crater, The Highlands is a unique and modern safari camp far from the other camps in the region.
One of a kind accommodations at the camp consist of eight high-style perspex-and-canvas domed suites inspired by traditional Maasai bomas, with two triples available on request. Each suite features a comfortable king-sized bed and floor to ceiling bay windows for sweeping views of the stunning landscape beyond. The large en-suite bathrooms come with hot running water, showers, and flushing toilets. There are even wood-burning stoves in the rooms for cozying up to on cold winter evenings. Twin and double beds are options as well. The family tent is specially designed to keep everyone from feeling cramped. They also include two bathrooms and outdoor showers. For privacy and romance, the honeymoon tent has a king-sized bed, a seating area, a large elevated deck, and an outdoor hot tub.
The camp is set in a private location at the edge of the mountain forest that sits on the Olmoti volcano. It is also only twenty-five miles from the beautiful Ngorongoro Crater. The crater is in fact an intact caldera, formed when a large volcano exploded and collapsed on itself two to three million years ago. 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.
