The Ngorongoro Crater in Northern Tanzania, once a gigantic volcano, is the largest intact caldera in the world and is home to Ang’ata Ngorongoro safari camp. Some maintain that before it erupted, it would have been higher than Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Today, long since having collapsed and eroded, it is an extensive highland area with the famous 600 m deep Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point. Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth.
Endangered black rhino are protected within its rim, giant tusked elephants wander the forests, black-maned lions stalk the grasslands, and flamingoes crowd the soda lakes. An estimated 25,000 large mammals are resident in this bowl of plenty, including a population of highly endangered black rhino and around a high density of lions and hyenas.
Ang’ata Ngorongoro safari camp is set under the Acacia forest on the north eastern side of the Ngorongoro Crater’s rim. Just inside the park boundaries our location permits early game drives down to the crater leaving you almost alone to discover this World Heritage Site.
The camp is made up of 8 guest tents, a lounge and a dining tent. Each guest tent has an en-suite bathroom with shower, vanity desk and flush toilets. Ang’ata Ngorongoro’s lounge is the place to meet other travellers and share your day’s safari stories while enjoying a complementary cup of Tanzanian coffee or tea. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners are served in the dining tent, freshly prepared by our chefs on a daily basis.
