Lemala Ngorongoro Tented Camp Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

The tents are tucked away in a ancient acacia forest in a quiet location so the camp is incredibly peaceful. It is also a seasonal camp meaning it is dismantled at the end of the season and has a low environmental impact.

Attractions

Facilities

There are only 9 tents in this small and intimate luxury camp, including 1 family tent. The tents contain two queen beds with snug duvets and hot water bottles. They are warmed in the evenings by a gas heater, ensuring a cosy night's sleep. The roomy en-suite bathrooms contain a dressing area, flush toilet and a large safari shower.

The mess tent is beautifully located and fashionably fitted with traditional sofas, period lamps, crammed bookshelves and corner cabinets in old wood. The traditional explorer theme is reinforced with travellers trunks and local rugs on the floors. In the evenings there is a camp fire to sit around an enjoy a pre-dinner drink before moving to the mess tent of a delicious meal.

Activities

The camp is the perfect base to explore the Ngorongoro Crater from. This UNESCO site is now a National Park but 100 years ago it was a private ranch and home to a German family. Its still possible to see the stone foundations of the old ranch house on the floor of the Crater. The Crater rim made what must have been the more impressive boundary fence for any property anywhere!

The game viewing is exceptional, with rare rhinos protected by the Parks geographt, hippos in a small marsh and a large pride of well-fed lions. Despite the steep sides elephants come and go but are usually there, accompanied by over 20,000 other mammals!.
