Entamanu Ngorongoro

Stylish glamping on the western rim of Ngorongoro Crater. For lovers of small camps with an eco-heart, great views (watch the sun rise over the Crater and set over the Serengeti!), and places run by camp owners who really know what they’re doing, Nomad Tanzania, and do it with panache.

This permanent tented camp is perched in a unique forested area on the western crater rim, offering outstanding views into the crater and as far as the southern Serengeti plains.  Entamanu means circle in KiMaa and the camp is surrounded by the Ngorongoro hills.  Olduvai Gorge and the Gol Mountains can also be seen on a cloudless day.
This is a high specification camp with six exceptional rooms, two of which are family rooms.  Although permanent, it has been constructed with the blessing of the local Masai community and it is totally transportable, should the need arise.  The main communal areas are also tented on a raised platform and incorporating the Nomad ethos of using locally sourced materials where possible. There is a also wooden terrace/veranda which runs for the entire length of the main area, providing seating and dining options – with a view of course!

Since Entamanu is within a conservation area and NOT a National Park, you are able to enjoy non-vehicle activities.  There are tremendous day hikes in outstanding landscapes to be enjoyed from camp, as well as really authentic cultural interaction which is neither obtrusive nor stage-managed.

If you like to be at one with nature, yet want easy access to the crater itself, and value good service and style, Entamanu is in our opinion a fabulous place to choose if you have the budget.
