Overview

Entamanu Ngorongoro is a brand new, high-specification tented camp on the north-western edge of the Ngorongoro Crater rim, Northern Tanzania. Recently opened in August 2016, the remote and eco-friendly camp offers an authentic and luxurious safari experience in one of Africa’s best wildlife destinations. Entamanu Ngorongoro is accessed via plane and vehicle transfer and the private road leading to the property itself offers breath-taking views of the crater with its 3000ft high walls. With the camp’s location just 20 minutes’ drive from the Seneto Descent road, the crater is easily accessible.

The accommodation sleeps a maximum of 16 and, in line with its sister camps in the Nomad Tanzania portfolio, offers a stylish and very comfortable retreat. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushing toilets. Enviromentally-friendly gas heaters warm the rooms and all tents have views directly into the Crater, with superb vistas across the Serengeti available from the other side of the camp. The accommodation comprises a total of 6 rooms, including two family suites made up of two rooms with a shared bathroom and mezzanine levels for children’s beds. Children of 8 years and above are welcome. Note that in keeping with the genuine wilderness feel, the camp is unfenced and, while it’s unlikely that the resident animals will approach tents or humans, parents will need to keep a close eye on their children at all times.

Activities include game drives into the Ngorongoro Crater, famed for its year-round abundance of wildlife including leopard, lion, elephant, buffalo and a vast array of birdlife. Guided walks, bush picnics and visits to local Maasai Communities are also available, with the beautiful Emapakaai and Olmoti Craters offering fascinating alternatives to the more renowned Ngorongoro Crater. Note that guided walks may not be available to children under the age of 12 and the altitude makes for potentially chilly weather so do bring warm clothing for all age groups.

Entamanu Ngorongoro provides high-quality accommodation in an unspoilt location. The camp offers a good, intimate alternative to some of the larger properties in the area, with a wide range of activities. Although not an option for those on a limited budget, this is a great choice for any traveller seeking a peaceful retreat and a spot of indulgence in an area renowned for its varied landscapes and spectacular wildlife-viewing.

  • The trip was amazing everything was better than we could have imagined.
    There was a moment climbing the mount Kenya where my wife accused me of tricking her into doing this (half kidding) as some of the nights got pretty cold, but we were dressed well and the sunrise at the peak was astonishing.
    Safari was spectacular, Ben who was our main guide and driver was awesome! We saw everything excepts rhinos which were more of a hope than a reality. We also were able to watch a rock python eat a Thompson gazel live. It was one of the most interesting and unsettling things I have ever seen.
    Just overall, so many moments that make you think wow or I can't believe I am here. Thank you for your help in getting everything set up. I don't believe I could have booked the trip without your help and guidance. It was an amazing way to start our marriage and truly the trip of a lifetime!

  • The Namibia trip was fantastic!

    Self-driving was brilliant, and the chronology of the itinerary was perfect (against the flow/direction most other travelers took).

    As for specifics:

    OKONJIMA
    This place was the best!
    Best service, best staff, best food, best experiences, best facilities.
    We saw a cheetah kill, leopards, and white rhino (which we were not expecting).
    If you’ve never been you should go...If I ever go back to Namibia I will revisit.

    EMANYA
    The only (slight) disappointment.
    Maybe because it was right after Okonjima, but the service was lacking, the facilities were a bit run down, it was the only place with mosquitoes in the room with no net and no spray. Food was marginal. Not sure if there are better options in the area, though.

    OKAUKEUJO
    Etosha Park was amazing. There was so much wildlife with so little crowds.
    The Okaukeujo Camp had the best watering hole with animals coming in at all times of the night. A great experience exclusive to the camp.

    DORO NAWAS
    Beautiful place. Very private. Food and service excellent.
    A nice stopping point on the drive.

    SPITZKOPPE
    An amazing place...How they laid out and built it.
    Enjoyed exploring the grounds and the local area/sights.
    The staff was on par with Okonjima.
    2 days were perfect.

    Ivin provided us with good advice/information/recommendations along the route, along with a cell phone and cooler for the trip. The car was perfect.
    They represent Tourdust well!

    Again, another great trip you put together...Thank you!

  • We both suffered but enjoyed it immensely. Just how it should be!!!!
    Our route up the mountain, the Burguret trail is very arduous and certainly should not be used for people who are not very fit and experienced trekkers. It mainly followers animal trails through the forests and bog lands around the mountain. The Chogoria route down was great. The guide and porters were great. Wild camping means just that, really just what I wanted, but I have lived in Kenya.
