Description

The most recent addition to Nomad Tanzania's collection of camps, Entamanu Ngorongoro opened in August 2016. Inspired by the crater, its name means "circle" in Maa (dialect of the Maasai people) and is a remarkable option on its periphery. Affording superlative views into the 3000ft deep crater and across the Serengeti, its off-the-beaten-track location is perfect for watching the sun rise and set over Northern Tanzania.

With only six luxury tents (two with options for families), the camp offers an outstanding setting and a completely removable structure meaning minimum impact on this unique location. However Entamanu Ngorongoro does not compromise on elegance and comfort (flushing loos, hot and cold running water and indoor heating).

A year round camp, Entamanu Ngorongoro is ideally located for game drives into the crater in search of the Big 5, guided walks through the surrounding highlands, interactions with neighboring Maasai communities and relaxing bush picnics. Excellent and experienced guides are on hand to teach guests about this breath-taking landscape and its fantastic culture.

The camp is only 2 hours from Manyara Airstrip, driving distance from Arusha and would combine perfectly with other camps in the Serengeti and Tarangire National Parks.

Accommodation

There are six tents at Entamanu Ngorongoro, two of which are suitable for families. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with flushing toilet, running hot and cold water and indoor heating enabling the camp to be open year round.

Childcare

Children over the age of eight are welcome at Entamanu Ngorongoro although for guided walks there is a minimum age of 12. There are no specific childcare facilities available at the camp.

Activities

During a stay, guests can enjoy game drives into the crater, guided walks, bush picnics, exploring the surrounding highlands and interacting with neighboring Maasai communities.

Location & Directions

Ngorongoro Crater, Northern Tanzania

Entamanu Ngorongoro is located on the North Western edge of the Ngorongoro Crater.

When to go

Tanzania is a large country, with a varied climate. Generally, the long rains run from March to May - the temperature is warm and the humidity is high. June to October is the long dry season, and the short rains are in November and December, much lighter than the long rains. January and February are again dry (the short dry season) so this is another good time to visit.
