Located on a highland coffee plantation 1800 metres above ground level is Crater Forest Tented Camp. It is a small eco-friendly safari camp that borders the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area and is surrounded by forest as far as the eye can see.
Crater Forest is an excellent value base for bush walks in the vicinity of the camp and game drives in Ngorongoro Crater. Beyond each of the camp’s 15 tented rooms is a bustling wildlife that can be seen and heard from the comfort of the camp. Elephants may stroll into view and lions may roar, causing flocks of birds to take flight from the trees and glide over the Ngorongoro Forest in spectacular waves of colour. But simply watching from afar is not enough. The camp offers guests a prime base from which to venture out and explore the surrounding area by foot on early morning forest walks or coffee estate tours.
Accommodation and communal areas are rustic but comfortable. Each room is fitted with an en-suite bathroom and has hot water for showers. The verandas overlook the surrounding woodland where guests can sit back, relaxing, and listen to the music of the wilderness as they enjoy sundowners at dusk or tea and, of course, coffee at dawn.
Crater Forest Tented Camp has a lounge where guests can enjoy after-dinner coffee, tea, and digestifs. This is a good entry-level camp and a great place for admirers of fresh locally produced coffee and walking game trails.

It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.
It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.
Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!
My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.
Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)
Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
Level of service, quality of food throughout
