On the boundary of the park – an easy drive in. A tented camp for those who want a green camp, close to nature but also want a real bathroom – this has wooden floors, doors and even a rain shower. Closed Apr/May.
Famed for baobab trees and huge herds of elephants & buffalo. Eco-friendly canvas-and-candlelight camp is charming. Walks, and night drives for leopard and owls.
Contemporary designed semi-circular tents, set among trees in a secluded part of the reserve. Famous for elephants around the camp and giant baobab trees.
Rustic but spacious and airy, in the quiet south east of the park. Little Oliver’s fly-camp is smaller for an even more wilderness experience.
Supersized rooms (over 200 sq feet) with super big windows, on elevated platforms. It’s outside the park though, and an hour’s drive to get there.
The walls of Ngorongoro’s spectacular volcanic crater have great private lodges, from which you drive down onto the plains, forests and wetlands to see the famed wildlife, including the big five. Tree-climbing lions at pretty Lake Manyara and and high game concentrations in Tarangire. All are public reserves, so you may see lots of vehicles on your drives. Camps here are not all tented, and there are some super lux options with a/c etc. Tanzania.
