At roughly 3 000 feet above sea level, Entamanu Ngorongoro gracefully presides over Tanzania’s most famous landmark and the world’s largest intact caldera, Ngorongoro Crater. Located on a remote part of the crater’s rim, Entamanu is a place where you can at once observe and be protected from the elements, and watch over an ever-changing landscape of dormant volcanic hills, distant lakes and endless plains.

This eco-conscious camp is specially designed to provide shelter from the high-altitude sun and chilly weather in the early mornings and evenings, but can also be completely disassembled to leave no mark on its pristine environment. Log fireplaces, plush fabrics, sheepskin throws and wool rugs create an inviting space to spend cosy evenings, while wooden viewing decks draw you outdoors to soak up the midday sun and draw in awe-inspiring views of the Serengeti to the west and Ngorongoro Crater to the east.  

Over and above offering breath-taking vistas and luxurious accommodation, the camp’s goals are to deliver each guest a private and exclusive experience of Ngorongoro Crater. Full-day safaris take you onto the Crater floor to witness a lost world that has remained unchanged for centuries. 


  • Secluded position on the Crater rim

Its extraordinary position on the remote north-western edge of the Crater rim affords you views over either side of the Crater wall. From the main lodge area, the vast plains of the Serengeti stretch out to the west, while six private suites face the soaring peaks of the crater in the east. Beautiful beadwork, design pieces and furniture are sourced from Tanzanian craftsmen, master Maasai beaders and even local glass blowers. The canvas and timber camp is built on raised wooded platforms made from sustainable-sourced wood, and despite being completely removable, the safari-chic Entamanu offers luxury, comfort and panache.

Meals can be enjoyed alfresco on the viewing decks or in the dining area at a communal table.
