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.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
