Lemala Ngorongoro Camp****
Lemala Ngorongoro is an intimate, seasonal camp set in a delightful, ancient acacia forest on the rim of the crater next to the quiet Lemala access route. The camp offers accommodation under canvas in only 8 luxury tents (accommodating 16 to 20 guests) and 1 family tent (accommodating 4 to 5 guests), which ensures seclusion in a pristine forest environment.
Each spacious tent is fitted with a gas heater, large single or king-size beds with warm duvets, wooden flooring with rugs, 24-hour solar lighting, en-suite bathrooms with a dressing area, flush toilet and a large safari shower. House alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and laundry are included.
The mess tent is beautifully furnished with grand sofas, lamps, book shelves and corner cabinets in old wood, chests and rugs. In the evening, guests gather around the campfire for sundowners before dining under chandeliers, which is hosted by the camp manager.
The camp works closely with the local Masai community who often provide dances and talks on Masai life, their cultures, traditions and ceremonies. Guests enjoy the opportunity to interact with the Masai, learning more about their traditional lifestyles.
- Game drives
- Cultural tours
- Walking safaris
Lemala’s major advantage over any other accommodation in this area, is the quick and easy access into the crater, which maximizes game viewing opportunities. The morning crater traffic is therefore avoided.
