Ngorongoro Crater camps - Entamanu
Meaning 'circle' in Maa, the language of the Maasai, Entamanu is the perfect name for this understated luxury camp that sits atop the breezy rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest unbroken caldera and Africa’s most iconic wildlife destination.
It’s a slow climb through the highlands on a rough dirt road to camp, but it’s worth it. On the way you could well see giraffe, a species that’s absent from the crater floor, browsing on acacia and on reaching the camp’s wonderfully remote location there are magnificent views over the 610m (2000ft) deep crater and across the Serengeti. It’s also the perfect spot for watching the sun both rise and set over Northern Tanzania.
Entamanu Ngorongoro has been designed to be supremely comfortable, yet completely removable to ensure minimal impact to this extraordinary site. Each of the six spacious tents (including one larger family tent) sits on its own raised platform with a view into the crater while the interiors are stylish and comfortable complete with flushing loo and hot and cold running water. Textured wool throws, fluffy sheepskins, down duvets and heaters provide warmth against the chilly nights - in June and July, the coldest months, daytime temperatures may only be 6–12°C and drop lower at night.
Fires burn in the hearths of the cosy tented lounge and dining areas in the evenings, where you can choose to dine communally with other guests and share stories of the day’s safari or privately at a table for two.
As well as game drives into the Ngorongoro Crater, other activities available at Entamanu include scenic walks in the Highlands and genuine Maasai cultural experiences.
