Pakulala is a simple, permanent tented camp set up in traditional style on the crater rim’s “Simba Special Campsite B". The camp was opened in 2012 and sits on a sloping, grassy clearing on the Ngorongoro crater’s southwest rim, close to the rarely used airstrip and about 3km from the park headquarters.

Our view of Pakulala

We haven’t stayed at Pakulala, but our brief visit in 2015 left us with the impression that the camp tends to deliver the goods to its guests. The staff were keen to show us around and the managers were attentive and professional. Combined with the good views from its site and the convenience of the location, we think Pakulala is a good, mid-range choice.
