Entamanu

Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

Ngorongoro benchmark

Perched high on the Ngorongoro Crater rim, Entamanu Ngorongoro is the ultimate highland retreat; somewhere to slow down and spend time discovering a unique highland environment.

The camp sits on an extraordinary site in the sharp air of the highlands on the edge of the world’s largest unbroken caldera, the Ngorongoro Crater ‐ Africa’s most iconic wildlife destination. The camp is completely removable with no permanent structures and stunning canvas rooms sit raised on platforms that can be dismantled and taken away when they reach the end of their lives. Interiors are of sustainably sourced wood and everything within the camp is locally sourced and made by talented Tanzanian artisans. Extraordinary care has been taken to ensure minimal disturbance to the environment, and not so much as a bush has been removed to make way for the camp.

The camp has six tented suites, one of which is a family unit and all rooms have views into the Crater, with immense Serengeti views to be enjoyed from the other side of camp.

There is no wildlife experience like Ngorongoro when you have a piece of it all to yourself ‐ and that’s what Entamanu Ngorongoro is all about. By day you can drive down the steep road and take in the breath taking wildlife of the Crater floor, all in the shadow of the 3000ft high Crater walls, or visit Empakai, Olmoti, OlDonyo Lengai: legendary names and places to hike and explore, almost completely ignored due to the rock stardom of their famous cousin. Entamanu is also surrounded by the most amazing cultural experiences and you have the opportunity to wander highland villages and watch the Maasai go about their daily life. We recommend 3 nights here to fully experience the area.

The trip exceeded my expectations and was the best family holiday I have ever had. Our children simply loved it and now I know more about African wildlife than they do about our own farm animals.
