Ngorongoro Crater Extension (2021)

Accommodations

Lemala Ngorongoro
Location
Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

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.
Ang’ata Ngorongoro Camp
Location
Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania

Ang’ata Ngorongoro Camp is perched on the northeastern rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, just a 10-minute drive from the crater floor that's home to some 25,000 animals—Africa's densest concentration of wildlife. The secluded camp rests in the shade of an acacia forest just inside the park boundary, providing exceptional proximity to the safari wonders on the crater floor. The small, simple camp, with just eight raised canvas tents, exudes rustic elegance. Each classic tent includes an en suite bathroom with shower and flush toilet, plus a vanity. Rustic wooden furniture includes beds — a king or two twins — and lounging couches with large cushions. Socialize in the lounge over Tanzanian coffee and tea, or around the campfire pit to share stories under the stars.  The dining tent offers expansive views over the green hills beyond. This optimally located camp offers everything you need to feel comfortable in the African bush, promising a restful night’s sleep on the very rim of the crater.
Sanctuary Ngorongoro Camp
Location
Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

Sanctuary Ngorongoro Crater Camp enjoys an optimal location on the crater rim within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. With close proximity to the crater access road, camp guests have unrivaled opportunity for quick and easy entry to the crater, perfect for arriving early in the morning for a quieter safari ahead of the crowds. The classic camp is comprised of 10 canvas tents, each with its own en suite bathroom and indoor bucket shower, with a personal tent attendant on hand to fill your bucket shower to the perfect temperature whenever you wish. Hair dryers are provided. Furnishings include wooden beds and campaign chairs, and a small sitting area in front of each tent offers a quiet spot for guests to enjoy early-morning coffee and biscuits before a day of outstanding game viewing. The main common areas include a dining area, bar and lounge with comfortable leather sofas. The crater is home to a large assortment of animals including zebra, rhino, buffalo, warthog, wildebeest, hippo and elephant, and an amazing population of predators—lion, hyena, jackal, cheetah and the elusive leopard.
Plantation Lodge
Location
Ngorongoro Highlands, Tanzania

A green oasis amid the red-brown hills of the Ngorongoro Highlands, Plantation Lodge lies at the center of a working coffee, flower and cattle plantation, surrounded by rolling green farmland and lowland forest. Its 17 individual bungalows provide superb comfort and amenities, each with a separate sitting area, wood-burning fireplace and private veranda overlooking lavish gardens and manicured lawns. The individually furnished rooms and suites are uniquely decorated with the owners’ fabulous collection of safari antiques and Tanzanian arts and crafts. The small size of this owner-run lodge, combined with its colonial-style charm, creates an intimate atmosphere where personal attention and a concern for detail are evident at every turn. The lodge enjoys a prime location for safari access: it's very near the entrance of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a quick hop from Tarangire and Lake Manyara national parks, and a relatively short drive from the Serengeti.
Ngorongoro Farm House
Location
Ngorongoro Highlands, Tanzania

Enjoy the atmosphere of a bygone era at this colonial-style inn on a 500-acre working coffee plantation. Designed to evoke the ambience of an earlier age, Ngorongoro Farm House provides a peaceful respite on your safari itinerary. Mature trees and lavish gardens provide verdant surroundings, attracting abundant birdlife. Guests stay in individual chalets with high wooden ceilings, spacious verandas, and rustic yet comfortable interior decor. Wooden four-poster beds are draped in gauzy mosquito netting and have cozy duvets to ward off the nighttime chill at elevation. Large bathrooms have a spacious shower, double wash basins and a vanity. Overstuffed armchairs invite relaxing in the adjacent sitting area.

The main lodge, built in classic colonial farmhouse style with white-washed exterior and hand-thatched roof, includes a lounge and dining room with craftsman-style furniture. A large wooden terrace offers expansive views of imposing Oldeani Volcano. Meals are a highlight, featuring locally sourced ingredients including fresh vegetables from the farm’s gardens. Organic coffee, a selection of teas and homemade cakes are served at all hours in the common area. Massage services are offered in a separate bungalow. Each afternoon, a guided walk around the farm and vegetable garden is offered, so guests can learn about the workings of a Tanzanian coffee farm—or wander the paths around the area on your own. Evenings often include dance or cultural presentations by local tribal community members.
