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 whole holiday start to finish was just fabulous, the accommodation was perfect and to a certain extent stunning at the Dar Hosnia in Marrakech.

    The transport, guides and staff at both locations were wonderful with a special mention to the Douar Samra team in Imlill. They were more than a bit special.

    The food at both locations was excellent and the ambience and fun we enjoyed in Douar Samra was beyond all expectations.

    We made many new friends whom I am sure we will keep in touch with way beyond this holiday.

    You put together a perfect package it was much more than just a great holiday it was a richly rewarding experience.

    Just finally to say a big thank you to you for organising one of the best trips we have had.

  • Everything was fab, I especially loved Tuningi such a special place and my son got to see his favourite animal the cheetah (after a bit of time hunting about on foot!). Mauritius is lovely we saw quite a bit of the island in the end.

  • We had a wonderful trip to Morocco. What a fascinating country. Thank you so much for all of your help making things smooth and less stressful!

    Here are a few things we wanted to pass on:

    Dar Housnia was absolutely delightful. It was like an entire wing of a house to ourselves with perfect Moroccan decor. The private area where we ate was so cute, the riad staff so accommodating. I loved waking in the cozy space with our family and hearing both call to prayer as well as roosters. Just perfect.

    I was a little unclear how to ask what time we were being picked up etc, but your office promptly replied to my emails - even on weekends- when we had these questions about transport times. Once, we met our guide in Imlil these details we not problematic as our guide “Abraham” totally took care of us. Abraham was awesome. You should definitely request him again in the future. He was young (29)and energetic. He had a ton of hiking experience in Imlil as he was from there. He also seemed to know everything else about morocco, the desert, the culture, etc, etc. He was approachable, kind, patient, great with our kids and answered SO MANY of our questions.

    The hike was lovely - after rain the day prior in Marrakech - there was snow in the mountains. It was gorgeous. We may have been up for a longer hike up Mt Taboukel if I had known this was a realistic option for families ( I thought from reading that it was too technical for us). Yet not sure we had enough days for all these things always since getting in the desert was a priority.

    The mountain house, Dar adar, was just as described… very basic. The wifi was broken (which was a nice break when you have pre-teens addicted to phones, plus my husband called no wifi an amenity to not be available by email for his work!)). There was no heat and the fireplace helped a tad - but was so very cold in the rooms. My husband loved the rustic space, I may have gone up one step in niceness of mountain accommodation if I had to do it over again. Yet, meeting the other families in this Dar Adar (including another Tourdust family from England) made this house very memorable.

    We were then joined by our driver for the next several days, Jamal. What a fun guy and a perfect driver. He could joke with my kids, he had a fun smile, and he had worked with Abraham before so they were a great team. The drive to desert was long as I knew it would be. It was nice to have the stop on way there near Ait Ben Haddu. The drive back from desert was long. It was more near 10 hours of driving (plus 1 hour at lunch = 11 hours) but I wouldn’t have made any different choices.

    The luxury desert camp was far and away the highlight of our trip. The tents were adorable, I was sufficiently warm even at night inside the tent. We loved the camel riding, the ATV vehicles at a nearby camp, sunsets on the dunes, music around the camp fire, meals with others at the camp and more.

    The last night was at Riad Jona. This was so very very lovely. The food was amazing - such a good idea to eat here after our long drive back to Marrakech. They had a small dining pool plus a hot tub which was delightful. It was almost more of a boutique hotel as it had several rooms.
