Crater Floor "Out of Africa" Hot Lunch

No safari is complete without experiencing a traditional bush lunch. Relax under the natural canopy of an acacia tree, whilst your personal butler serves up a feast. Nothing is quite so essentially safari as this. Tailored service with cold drinks and your private chef preparing delicious meals surrounded by breath-taking surroundings in total privacy totally completes this Out of Africa experience. After enjoying your morning game drive, your guide will bring you to your private location within the Ngorongoro Crater where our team awaits to seat you.

Our vehicles have charging facilities and a fridge with cold drinks. Our vehicles are driven by excellent guides who will ensure you see the best of what Ngorongoro has to offer. All vehicles on the crater floor are closed vehicles with pop up roofs.

Lemala Cubs Kids Activities

Tanzania has great appeal for families. Seeing animals is very exciting for children, and nothing can prepare a parent for the delight of watching their child’s reaction when they catch sight of a lion, giraffe or elephant for the very first time. Lemala Cubs offers our special guests under the age of 12, a range of wonderful opportunities to experience and enjoy the magic of the African bush. These activities are fun, educational and interesting, showing future generations the need for conservation of Africa’s wildlife, and keep kids well entertained while mum and dad relax.

Maasai Boma Experience

An authentic glimpse into the distinctive Maasai culture is a must whilst in Tanzania. Preservation of their proud traditions has set the Maasai apart from other indigenous groups in Tanzania, and embodies a side of Africa with which few outsiders can contact. We offer guests a memorable opportunity to interactively experience the Maasai way of life through an excursion to a traditional boma, where guests will be able to participate in a variety of unique cultural activities, and encouraged to delve as deep into the experience as possible!

Nature Walk

A walk in the highlands is a sensory adventure like no other. Tanzania is one of the best safari countries for walking, with a number of parks allowing guests to experience a more up-close-and-personal encounter. Follow in the footsteps of animals, accompanied by highly skilled and knowledgeable guides. Along the way you might identify animal tracks, learn about fascinating plants, spot some of the smaller animals and insects (you wouldn’t necessarily see from a vehicle) as well as feel the buzz of tracking some of the larger game. There is no better way to learn about the bush.

Sundowners are more than just a happy hour. They are a very cherished African tradition and form an integral part of your safari experience. It is a time to relax, reminisce the day gone by, enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine around the camp fire with fellow travellers, and watch as the sun goes down over the Serengeti plains.
