Lemala Ngorongoro is located on the quieter eastern side of the Ngorongoro Crater rim, a short drive past the Lemala Gate, making it very convenient for getting into the Crater as early as possible. The camp is set back from the crater rim, in a grove of red thorn acacia trees and has more of a bush feel than many camps in the area. The camp has a peaceful location, plenty of birdlife, and frequent visits by buffalo and elephant at night. Although the camp doesn't have direct views over the crater itself, it does have views – mist and clouds permitting – through the forests in the opposite direction.

Our view of Lemala Ngorongoro

Lemala Ngorongoro has very easy access to the crater floor; it's close to the 'Sopa' descent road on the eastern side of the crater (in fact closer to it than the Sopa Lodge after which the road is named – and it's actually inside the park gate!) It is also a good spot to do some walking amongst the forests and the hills of the crater rim, or to visit a local Masaai village.
