About the Property

Nestled within a charming ancient acacia forest near the rim of the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, Lemala Ngorongoro Tented Camp offers an intimate and privileged safari experience. Its advantageous location adjacent to the serene Lemala crater access road on the eastern side allows guests to enjoy a swift and easy morning descent onto the crater floor, offering a one-hour head start over others using the busier Seneto crater access road on the western rim. This means Lemala guests can savor more active wildlife encounters during the early morning and late afternoon, providing better photography conditions. The camp also provides escorted walks into the forest and along the crater rim, guided by an armed ranger and Maasai guide.

Getting There



Lemala Ngorongoro Tented Camp features 10 spacious tents strategically positioned to provide privacy while minimizing the impact on the pristine forest environment. Each tent accommodates two queen-size beds and offers little luxuries such as warm winter-weight duvets, hot water bottles, and gas heaters to ensure a cozy night's sleep, as the Ngorongoro Crater rim can get chilly at night. The roomy en-suite bathrooms include a dressing area, flush toilet, and a large safari-style shower. One of the tents has two bedrooms, designed especially for friends and family traveling together. The camp operates on 24-hour solar electricity with a backup generator, providing convenience and comfort. The tents at Lemala Ngorongoro offer a peaceful retreat amidst the natural beauty of the area.
