Entamanu Ngorongoro

This lofty tented camp high on the caldera rim offers views of sunrise over the Ngorongoro Crater and sunset over the Serengeti plains.

Its location is deliciously wild, next to a grove of acacias and constructed to leave no trace on the stunning unspoilt environment.

There are just 6 guest tents in total, one being a two-bedroom unit designed for families with children. All share the same captivating views while enjoying peace and privacy. Heaters provide warmth on cool nights with woolly sheepskins and down duvets adding to the cosiness factor.

Hearty meals are served in the elegant dining tent, and there is an invited lounge under canvas where drinks and snacks can be enjoyed. Activities during your stay include game drives along the wildlife-rich crater floor, explorations of Empakaai, Olmoti and Ol Donyo Lengal, as well as Maasai cultural experiences, all far from the tourist trail.
