The Highlands in Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater highlands is a stylish camp set partway up Olmoti Volcano north of the Ngorongoro Crater. It has simply stunning views.

The 8 luxury tents ensure an intimate and exclusive feel. As well as taking game drives, you can go for nature walks following traditional Maasai trails to Olmoti crater, learn about the local lion population from a specialist researcher and visit a local village for an insight into present-day Maasai life.

The distinctive geodesic dome tents are formed of canvas and glass and have high-domed ceilings and full-length windows with wonderful views you can enjoy even when you're relaxing in bed. The wood-burning stove keeps you snug even on the coolest nights. Bathrooms have hot water showers and flush toilets. The tents' design is inspired by traditional Maasai bomas, successfully incorporating modern comforts while ensuring the emphasis is firmly on the beauty of the natural setting.

The main area includes a lounge, library and bar. Food is sourced from local farms, and if you are planning to be away from camp at mealtimes the chef can prepare you a picnic to enjoy on your travels.

Client Rating for Tanzania 5/5 from 217 reviews

Pictures don’t really do the domes justice as they are so spacious, and the high ceilings really create a unique environment to stay in. All in all, they make for a space you don’t really want to leave!
