Located on the Ngorongoro Crater rim in the Ngorongoro National Park, the Sanctuary Ngorongoro Crater Camp provides the best setting for a nature lover’s dream with its spectacular views of the unique landscape and a diversity of wildlife leading from the Crater rim to its floor.

What makes Ngorongoro Crater Camp Special?
Situated on the Ngorongoro rim with close access to the road into the Crater, the camp provides a unique experience for guests to enjoy the endless supply of wildlife in the area. With approximately 30 000 animals roaming around the park’s vast landscapes, it is a game viewing gem. The area in which the camp is situated is home to a large variety of wildlife including zebra, wildebeest, hippo, buffalo, elephant and an amazing population of predators including lion, hyena, jackal, cheetah and leopard.
The Serengeti National Park covers approximately 15 000 km2 of grassland plains, savannah, riverine forest, and woodlands in the northwest of Tanzania.
Situated within the famous plains of south-east Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtaking natural wonder 20km across and 600 metres deep. Once a gigantic volcano and now the largest intact caldera in the world, it offers an abundance of wildlife and pure beauty. Sixteen highly-endangered black rhino are protected within the Crater’s rim, elephants wander its forests, black-maned lions stalk its grasslands, flamingos crowd its salty lakes, and the herds of the Great Migration traverse it, following the rains. An estimated 25 000 large mammals are resident in this bowl, including a population of approximately 6 000 resident wildebeest and 70 lions. Cheetahs move in and out of the Crater, while leopards are most often encountered in the picturesque Lerai Forest.
Nestled in the raw wilderness of Tanzania, the 10 luxury tented suites offer en-suite bathrooms with an indoor bucket shower and stunning views of the surrounds. The main common area includes a dining area, bar and lounge area as well as comfortable sofas carefully situated in prime locations around the camp.
Children over the age of 12 are welcome.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all included in your stay and are served as a buffet within the camp. On early morning game drives, guests will enjoy a boxed breakfast in the bush before heading back to the camp for a late lunch. For a unique take on the dining experience, Ngorongoro Crater Camp can customise individual dining settings around the camp with unique view-points. Comfortable sofas are set up around the camp with umbrellas placed for guests to sit and enjoy the surrounding area.
Twice-daily game drives are led by highly-trained and knowledgeable guides in an open 4x4 game viewing vehicle. The guides will take you to the Crater floor to witness the massive variety of animals, including its impressive population of predators.
Guests can also enjoy guided walking safaris and cultural interactions by visiting the nearby Maasai villages.
