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.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
