Lemala Ndutu Camp, Tanzania

Make sure that you stay at Lemala Ngorongoro when you take your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Tanzania and you won’t just be visiting the world renowned Ngorongoro Crater, you’ll be living on its very rim, in the cool shade of an ancient acacia forest. You’ll be sleeping in a modern safari tent with canvas walls – all the better to let in the sounds of the wildlife going about their nocturnal perambulations. And during the day you’ll be taking game drives across the floor of the crater itself, in the pursuit of Ngorongoro lion, leopard, wildebeest, rhino, buffalo, hippo, elephants and zebra.

You’ll also have an unrivalled opportunity to meet the local Masaai, to learn about their customs, their traditional way of life, their colourful dances and fascinating ceremonies.
