The Ngorongoro Crater as seen from Crater Camp

The Sanctuary Ngorongoro Crater Camp not only boasts awe-inspiring views across the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, but it is also within short distance of the access road to the crater and crater floor itself. Here, magnificent game-viewing awaits in one of Africa’s most important biodiversity hotspots. 

The Ngorongoro Crater was created when a meteor struck earth millennia ago. It remains the only intact caldera on earth today whose walls harbour a plethora of wildlife thanks to the natural water sources and abundance of food on offer. On morning and evening game drives in the crater, guests can expect to see wildebeest, hippo, elephant, lion, cheetah, and leopard among others. 

The camp’s 10 classic canvas tents add a touch of luxury to your everyday camping experience. They have double beds, en-suite bathrooms and indoor camp showers and the modern conveniences of plug points and hairdryers. Guests will delight in the earthy tones of the decor, which are punctuated by reddish browns and pale yellows to highlight the surrounding terrain. When not on safari or relaxing in your tent, join other guests and your knowledgeable guides at the bar, lounge, and dining areas.
