ITINERARY / DETAILS
Entamanu Ngorongoro (meaning ‘circle' in Maa) is the only place in the world where you can enjoy views into both the Crater and the Serengeti.
Your camp is uniquely off the beaten track on the wild side of the iconic Ngorongoro Crater rim, offering an unspoilt, unparalleled Crater wildlife experience, as well as giving an authentic insight into the land and culture that surrounds it.
Occupying such a spectacular site, at 7,284 feet (2,220 meters) ASL, the camp is designed with the utmost sensitivity to the environment, and Entamanu Ngorongoro successfully combines a light footprint with comfort and style.
The camp has seven en-suite rooms, with indoor heating, hot and cold running water and flush toilets. Two rooms are family units consisting of two separate bedrooms connected via a shared en-suite. Because we occupy such an elemental site we have designed our camp to be a refuge from the elements. The sun gets hot up here, and the nights and early mornings cold, and some months (June to mid- September) it can be very windy, so always come prepared with warm clothes no
matter what season you travel in.
Activities here include game drives into the Ngorongoro Crater, guided walks, bush picnics and sundowners, together with genuine Maasai cultural experiences.
The Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the most famous wildlife areas in the world. The Crater itself is the world's largest inactive and intact volcanic caldera, formed when it exploded and collapsed in on itself some two to three million years ago. The floor of the Crater covers 260 km2 (100 sq mi) and is mostly covered by grasslands with two small wooded areas and a seasonal salt lake in the centre of the crater; the lake is known by two names, Lake Magadi or Lake Makat. The other major water source is the Ngoitokitok, near
the eastern crater wall.
Set in the Ngorongoro Conservation Authority area, part of the larger Serengeti ecosystem, it adjoins the Serengeti National Park, merging into the Southern Plains. The south and west of the area are volcanic highlands including Lake Natron ,the active volcano Ol Donyo Lengai and the lesser known Empakai Crater; the southern and eastern boundaries are defined by the rim of the East African Rift
The Ngorongoro Crater, known as a great tourist attraction, is usually quite crowded, but the game viewing is very rewarding nevertheless. Within the whole area, there are over 25,000 large animals, including black rhinoceros, wildebeest, zebra, eland, Grant's and Thomson's gazelles, lion, leopards, elephants, mountain reedbuck, hyenas and huge herds of buffalo. Over 500 species of birds have been recorded within the area, including ostrich, white pelican and the greater and lesser flamingo on the lake within the Crater.
