The Highlands

Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

Part of the Tanzania Safari & African Safari Collection

The Highlands redefines the Ngorongoro experience. Set high on the slopes of Olmoti volcano, with sweeping views all the way to the Serengeti, you can be at the famous Ngorongoro Crater floor at dawn but far from any other camps. Stylish and tatseful rooms overlook the Crater, an ancient caldera and UNESCO World Heritage Site. this is Tanzanian luxury at it's best. In fact, a stay here is possibly the highlight of any safari in Tanzania

Your base is a warm and stylish high altitude camp, inspired by traditional Maasai bomas which dot the surrounding landscape, deliberately positioned deep in this highland wilderness for maximum privacy, richness of adventure and range of activities not possible elsewhere in Ngorongoro.
