Lemala Ngorongoro is a luxury seasonal camp located in a private reserve on the north side of the Ngorongoro Crater. Its optimal location near the less-traveled Lemala access road provides quick and easy entry into the crater, a mere 15-minute descent that maximizes wildlife-viewing opportunities by allowing for full days on the crater floor. Often, the first hours of a morning safari drive are enjoyed in solitude before others arrive. Set in an acacia forest on the crater rim, the intimate camp offers secluded accommodations under canvas in deluxe tents. Each of the nine spacious tents is outfitted with a gas heater, large single or king-size beds with warm duvets, wooden flooring with rugs, 24-hour solar lighting, and en suite bathrooms with a dressing area, flush toilet and safari-style bucket shower. The mess tent is lavishly furnished with grand sofas, lamps, chests, rugs, and book cases and corner cabinets in old wood. In the evening, guests gather around the campfire for sundowners before enjoying a sumptuous dinner. The camp works closely with the local Maasai community, members of which often offer dances and talks on Maasai culture, traditions and ceremonies, an engaging way for guests to learn more about their traditional lifestyles.
