About Lemala Ngorongoro Camp
Lemala Ngorongoro Camp is a seasonal camp that’s located in an acacia forest. With quick and easy access to the Ngorongoro Crater, this camp wins points for its location! As the crater is a popular tourist destination – especially during high season – it’s best to get there early in the morning. Because you’re so close to the main gate and the crater rim, you won’t waste any time in the morning, and are guaranteed to be one of the first guests inside the wonderful wildlife haven.
As the Maasai tribe lives in the area, Lemala Ngorongoro works closely with the community. You can get the chance to listen to a talk about their culture, visit their village and chat with the locals.
