Lemala Ngorongoro is a deluxe intimate camp set in a delightful ancient acacia forest on the rim of the crater next to the quiet Lemala access route.

The camp offers secluded accommodation under canvas in 8 luxury tents and 1 family tent (accommodates 4 to 5 guests). NB: From June 2010 the camp size reduces to 6 luxury tents and 1 family tent to offer greater privacy for guests.

Each spacious tent is outfitted with a gas heater, large single or king-size beds with warm duvets, wooden flooring with rugs, 24-hr solar lighting, and en-suite bathrooms with a dressing area, flush toilet and a safari shower.

The mess tent is beautifully furnished with grand sofas, lamps, book and corner cabinets in old wood, chests and rugs.  In the evening, guests gather around the campfire for sundowners before retiring for dinner under chandeliers hosted by the camp manager. House alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are included at meal time.

Lemala’s major advantage over other accommodation on the rim is the quick and easy access into the crater which maximizes game viewing and avoids the traffic.  Ol Moti and Empakaai craters are also easily accessible for optional walks with the Masai. Optional private lunches inside the crater or breakfast with the Masai can be arranged with advance notice.

Don’t miss this charming camp facing a lovely forest filled with sounds of wildlife, birds and the bells of Masai cattle. Elephants and buffalo are frequent visitors too.
