Lemala Ngorongoro Crater Camp is a tented camp close to the rim of the Ngorongoro caldera tucked in a wooded valley. The camp features six tents, a skilled friendly staff and is just a few minutes’ drive from the crater rim.
Each expansive tent has five areas. The open verandah is shaded, with canvas director's chairs and thoughtfully placed reading table angled to catch the best views of the Ngorongoro or enjoy a cool drink or spot of tea. Inside, the bedroom features oversized windows allowing cool breezes and warm light to wash through, while keeping the insects outdoors. Electric light shines from a chandelier with a 220V plug for charging batteries and other devices. Immediately behind the bedroom is a change area with ceramic sink on a hand carved wooden counter with large mirror. There is a flush toilet and the camp features hot and cold running water. In the winter months, there are small heaters and thick duvet covers to keep you warm.
Three main meals are served each day in the large canvas dining tent overlooking the plains, culminating with five course dinners. Picnic meals can also be prepared for your full day game drives. In the evening sit in the light of a warm fire in a semi-circle of chairs looking into the park. (Bottled water is included in the tariff, and soda, beer and wine are available on a cash basis).
