Entamanu Ngorongoro Tanzania Guest Tent View

Entamanu Ngorongoro Tanzania is a relatively new camp set high on the crater rim in a beautiful scenic spot with panoramic views forward into the Crater and back to the Serengeti plains. This is so much more than a great vantage point for visiting the Crater it’s a wonderful safari spot in Maasai territory.

This is the Ngorongoro, off the beaten track on top of the world on one of Africa’s most stunning private drives. The camp is one of the top accommodation options on the crater ridge. It and its sister properties include some of the best camps in Tanzania.

The camp – or rather the two camps (there is Entamanu Private and Entamanu Ngorongoro) – are set in a small, forested area on top of the crater rim. From here you may enjoy the views both south towards the crater itself, and north-west towards the plains of the Serengeti; it boasts that it's the 'only place in the world where you can watch the sun rise over the crater, and set over the Serengeti'.

Both camps are decorated in typical African rustic chic, stylish glamping style. With the main areas being an airy entrance space with a lounge area complete with burning fireplaces and a dining room tent with washed wooden floorboards and a rustic mix of neutral-coloured seating with colourful cushions, books and decorative touches. Entamanu Private is built out of timber, glass and stretched-canvas rooms in a ‘mountain-retreat’ type style shielding you from the elements which a beautiful lounge seating area and separate dining room. It has just four, en-suite very spacious tents with wood burners to keep you warm from what can be, at this elevation, quite a cold wind. Two of which are two-bedroom family ready rooms, each with their own adjoining bathroom, all with the all-important crater and Serengeti views.

Entamanu Ngorongoro is very similar while being built out of canvas with wood floors. The main area has a large veranda with seating, and a grassy area beyond where younger guests enjoy playing. Out in the front there is a sacred, protected Olteti (fig tree), occasionally the Maasai will conduct ceremonies here with guests are welcome to watch.

Either side of the main area are seven one bed tents. Again, two of these are designed as family units, with two bedrooms and a shared bathroom. All tents are very privately space and tastefully designed and decorated in a light palette of creams, browns, greys and blues, with a relaxed feel. Each tent has the typical amenities of a writing desk, wooden luggage stand and comfortable lounge chairs facing out over the views. With all rooms having an extensive wooden deck to the rear with a pair of chairs – a tranquil spot to take in the alternative views.

All of the en-suite bathrooms at Entamanu (Private and Ngorongoro) are large with a flushing loo and plumbed-in shower, two aged-metal sinks are set into a heavy wooden unit lit by storm lanterns, with a corner for the open wardrobe. There are fast-acting gas heaters to warm the bedrooms and bathrooms in the Entamanu Ngorongoro camp.

The fires and heaters are very welcome here as due to the high elevation on the crater rim it can be cold and quite windy! June–July are the coldest months with November–December typically experiences 17–21°C.

The camp conducts game drives into the Ngorongoro Crater itself with access to the crater being around a 40 minute game drive. Other activities at the camp include guided drives and walks in the wider Ngorongoro area if requested, game walks to a neighbouring authentic Maasai village, led by a Maasai guide and accompanied by a national parks' ranger, for those aged 12 and above.
