Ngorongoro Conservation Area-Tanzania
4/5 Reviews


Set on the Crater rim in an area rarely used by other vehicles but about five to ten minutes from the entrance to the Ngorongoro Crater floor, Lemala Ngorongoro not only offers an intimate and secluded experience but delivers a great safari too. The communal areas have been designed to make you feel at home: lounge around on large sofas, choose a book from the book corner, or just admire the beauty of the area.

Guests are encouraged to dine communally with a nature expert and there'll be plenty to talk about: guests can experience amazing crater floor game viewing all year round in one of the best Big 5 reserves in East Africa. And after your drive, take a walk with a Maasai warrior in the forests that cover the rim of the crater to get stunning views and a chance to spot a different set of animals.
