Lemala Ngorongoro is an intimate seasonal camp set in a delightful ancient acacia forest on the rim of the crater, next to the quiet Lemala access route. The camp has been re-furbished recently with new tents and furnishings and offers accommodation in 9 spacious canvas tents ensuring intimacy and minimal impact on the pristine forest environment.
The new tents can now accommodate two queen beds or a king bed which have warm duvets and hot water bottles. There is a gas heater to warm up the tents in the evening, wooden flooring with rugs and 24-hour solar lighting. The roomy en-suite bathrooms contain a dressing area, flush toilet and a large safari shower. Each tent can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children.
The mess tent is beautifully furnished with grand sofas, lamps, bookshelves and corner cabinets in old wood, chests and rugs. In the evening, guests gather around the campfire for cocktails before dining under chandeliers with the camp manager. House beverages are included at meal times.
The camp works closely with the local Masai community and often there are dances and talks on Masai traditions and ceremonies providing guests the opportunity to interact with the tribe.
