At around 3,000 feet above sea level, Entamanu Ngorongoro gracefully presides over Tanzania’s most famous landmark and the world’s largest intact caldera, Ngorongoro Crater. This cosy, canvas homestead is the perfect place to explore this wild highland environment.
Located on the remote north-west crater rim, Entamanu is a place where you can watch over endless plains, dormant volcanic hills, distant lakes, and ever-changing landscapes.
Entamanu is an eco-conscious camp specially designed to provide shelter from the high-altitude sun and chilly weather in the early mornings and evenings but can also be completely disassembled to leave no mark on its pristine environment.
Log fires, plush fabrics, sheepskin throws and wool rugs create an inviting space to spend cosy evenings, while wooden decks entice you outdoors to soak up the midday sun and draw in the awe-inspiring views.
There are seven canvas rooms elevated on wooden platforms all with crater views - two family units comprise two bedrooms and a shared bathroom.
Every effort has been made to create comfort and each room has indoor heating and en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water, double sinks, and flush loos.
Meals can be enjoyed alfresco on the viewing decks or in the dining area at a communal table. Have the pleasure of dining with your guides, who will share their stories and vast knowledge of the African bush with you. Meals are wholesome and plentiful, and picnic lunches will be packed for full-day safaris into the Crater.
Activities include game drives into the Ngorongoro Crater, famed for its year-round abundance of wildlife including leopard, lion, elephant, buffalo, and a vast array of birdlife. Guided walks, bush picnics and visits to local Maasai Communities are also available.
