Sanctuary Ngorongoro Crater Camp

For those long in search of the ultimate African adventure, we think we’ve found the answer at Sanctuary Ngorongoro Crater Camp. Perched on the rim of a caldera in the Ngorongoro UNESCO World Heritage Site, the discovery of unique ecosystems and stunning natural wonder beckons. This luxury 10 tented camp is surrounded by spectacularly diverse landscapes on all sides and leaves you perfectly poised to uncover the secrets of this wildlife haven.


After a 40 minute scenic flight from Arusha, you’ll arrive at camp via a one hour and forty-five-minute game drive, filled with colourful flora and fauna. Overlooking the Ngorongoro Crater, your tented camp is close to Maasai villages where you can learn about the local people and their traditions in between invigorating game drives in search of the 25,000 animals that roam the surrounding grasslands.

Your room

Tented accommodation has never been so luxurious and with your own tent attendant, you’ll be treated like royalty. Inside your canvas hideaway, khaki hues add to the safari feel and a soft comfortable bed awaits you at the end of your day of intrepid exploring. Sip on a glass of wine and soak up the sunshine on your private porch, positioned just-so to catch the last of the evening sun.

Why we like it

We love how elephants roam through the camp and how each night hyena calls lull you to sleep. It brings a whole new meaning to having nature on your doorstep. Everyone loves being pampered and being in the depths of East Africa’s wilderness doesn’t mean you’ll be deprived. At Sanctuary Ngorongoro Crater Camp, you’ll be greeted by a wake-up call to remember with tea, coffee and biscuits delivered to your terrace before your early morning game drive. Throw in romantic dinners under starry skies and you have a Black Tomato favourite.
