What’s the difference: it’s on the other side of the Crater to all the other camps, so you have a wonderfully scenic drive to get there, then the surrounding area is deserted so your game drives too are less crowded, and you’re already nearer to the Serengeti when you leave.
Lemala Ngorongoro is a small and intimate seasonal camp, set amongst an acacia forest on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. Each tent is equipped with 24-hr solar lighting and warm duvets to keep the cold nights at bay. The mess tent is enticing and comfortable with grand sofas, and old chests and rugs. Lemala Ngorongoro also works closely with the Masai, and there is plenty of opportunity to get to know this charismatic tribe. Access into the Crater is only fifteen minutes giving Lemala an added advantage, as your wildlife viewing can start well before other guests arrive on the Ngorongoro Crater floor.
