Lemala Ngorongoro Camp, Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

Lemala Ngorongoro is a new camp on the rim of the crater in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Arriving in camp, it quickly becomes clear why the area is known as Acacia Camp.

The eight luxury tents are scattered amongst a thick grove of acacia trees. Each tent sits on a wooden platform and has en suite facilities including a dressing room, flush loo, and bucket shower. Each evening your bucket will be filled with hot water for a shower, before heading out to the campfire for evening drinks. Later on, you'll move into the mess tent for dinner. In the cooler months the sides of the mess tent are zipped up and heaters warm the room.

There are cosy sofas, books, magazines and board games for the afternoons, and a small bar in the corner of the tent. At the other end of the mess is the dining table, where communal meals are taken each evening.
