Perched high on the wild side of the Ngorongoro Crater rim, Nomad’s Entamanu Ngorongoro is a thoughtfully designed refuge in this elemental place, from which to explore the unique highland environment. Surrounded by the soaring peaks of dormant volcanic hills and the ebb and flow of Maasai pastoralist life, this is a place to explore beyond the hustle and bustle of the tourist trail.
Not only to visit the Crater, but to understand it as part of a wider environment. There’s nothing tame about this location – the high altitude sun has some real heat and the wind can be biting and sometimes noisy. The camp makes the most of the extraordinary view while providing warmth and shelter from the elements.

There’s nothing tame about this location – the high altitude sun has some real heat and the wind can be biting and sometimes noisy. The seven rooms, two of which are family units ideal for families with children, have been carefully designed with this in mind. Think textured wool, down duvets and heaters which provide warmth in the sleeping tents against the chilly nights, as well as fully openable fronts to let the breeze in when it warms up during the day. Big verandas wrap around the front of the rooms and the ideal place to sit and marvel at the view. All of the rooms have views into the Crater, with immense Serengeti views to be enjoyed from the other side of camp. The interiors are of sustainably sourced wood and everything within the camp is locally sourced and made by talented Tanzanian artisans.

Ngorongoro Crater game drives
A big highlight of any stay here, the Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa’s most iconic wildlife destinations. The beauty of Entamanu Ngorongoro is that it sits within the Conservation area and only 30 minutes drive from the descent road into the Crater. An early start is highly recommended to enjoy the Crater before the majority of visitors make it in from other camps. You will set off with your guide and a packed breakfast and return to camp in time for lunch. Or, head out in the afternoon and enjoy sundowners on the rim on your way back to camp.
Entamanu Ngorongoro offers guided walks along the rim of the Crater and in the surrounding highlands. You will head out with your guide and a member of the local Maasai community and learn all about medicinal plants, Maasai beliefs, as well as track any local wildlife that has wondered close to camp. Walks are all about soaking up the view at a slower pace and learning to appreciate the little things and they come highly recommended. Walks at Entamanu need to be pre-booked.
Into the Boma.
Sometimes we drop round to see our Maasai neighbours, who are living a largely traditional life in the boma in the next valley, and still grazing their cattle in the conservation area. It will be just us and them, and a warm welcome, with insights into the pastoral life, from building huts to warrior ceremonies.
