Client Rating for Tanzania 5/5 from 217 reviews

This is a very simple camp, but the excellent staff and superb position on the eastern rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, makes this a great choice. Set in amongst ancient acacias, you can’t see down into the Crater, however you can be one of the first into the crater on a morning game drive due to the proximity to the eastern gate.(I rated the camp as 4/5 only because it is due a refurb which is about to happen. I'm certain it will be 5/5 at that point!).
