"Entamanu Ngorongoro review"

2 nights Arrived 8 Jul 2017
"Amazing place - location and quality of accommodation and facilities.

Staff were fantastic and food was excellent.
It was cold at night but they were well-prepared with fires and hot water bottles.

The accompanied walk from the camp was excellent - it felt very real being on foot for a while rather than being in a safari vehicle." See all these reviews: 7n in Tanzania

"Entamanu Ngorongoro review"

2 nights Arrived 25 Mar 2017
"Stunning location on the crater's edge. Loved the decor of the lodge, which managed to combine tremendous comfort with a wilderness feel.

Staff were extremely helpful in re-scheduling one of our flights and in organizing a surprise sundowner.

Very slick operation!" See all these reviews: 8n in Tanzania; 4n in Rwanda

"New mobile camp at Ngorongoro crater"

2 nights Arrived 30 Oct 2016
"Interesting location on the crater rim. Very well-equipped and furnished camp. Super rooms with good hot showers and scenic loos.
Attractive central dining and bar area, welcome fire and good food. First class manager - Ben.
We were met at Lake Manyara airport by Ian, our guide. Although he was aware that we were only spending 2 nights at Entamanu, he seemed reluctant to get a waggle on and get to the camp, to be able to enjoy activities on offer (guided walks, local village visit, etc). It felt as though he was trying to conserve fuel by sticking to 40mph on the good tarmac roads from the airport to the Conservation Area entry gates, and we had quite a battle to persuade him to arrange a hike with one of the park rangers. We were keen to get some exercise, and the 2 hour hike from the park rangers lodge to Entamanu was enjoyable and just what we needed.
The visit down into the crater was a unique experience, and the game sightings good, although cheetahs and rhino were still in hiding. Again our guide seemed to want to cut short our visit to the crater, and we had to insist on seeing a fine lake that attracted lots of wildlife, and would have been a great spot for the picnic."
