See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Lemala Ngorongoro

A seasonal camp located on the rim of the Ngorongoro crater, Lemala is located in a quiet part of Ngorongoro National Park and has unparalleled views and wildlife.

Accommodation is comprised of nine tents, including one specifically for families. Each tent is spacious and has an en suite bathroom with flush loo and safari shower. Décor in both the rooms and mess tent evokes the authentic safari experience, with wooden chests, antiques, book shelves and rugs.

Just a ten minute drive to the crater bowl, Lemala is the closest camp to the actual crater and uses an entrance rarely used by others. This means guests can get in early doors and have the place to themselves for a few hours, with uninterrupted wildlife viewing. As well as game drives in the crater, guests can also go on walks and picnics. Lemala also works closely with the local Masai community and encourages guests to spend time with the Masai and learn of their lifestyle and traditions.
