Lemala Ngorongoro Highlights

Lemala Ngorongoro is at an advantage over any other accommodation in this area in that it has quick and easy access into the crater, maximising game viewing opportunities. Game drives from the camp may start as early as 6.15am and it only takes 15 minutes to descend onto the crater floor, which allows for enhanced game-viewing opportunities. The scenery is breath-taking and the wildlife abundant. Lemala offers great charm and luxury in a delightful prime location on the Crater rim. It is perhaps the most intimate way to experience the Crater's splendours. This is a gorgeous seasonal camp facing a lovely forest filled with sounds of wildlife, birds and the bells of Masai cattle.

Sun Safaris Says

  • Masai dances a part of dinner time entertainment, allowing guests to learn more about the local culture and traditions.
  • Very often Lemala clients are on their own on the crater floor, enjoying the solitude and early morning light.
  • 4WD vehicles take guests down into the primeval paradise of woodland, lake, river, swamp and plain that shelters around 40,000 animals.
