Strategically positioned just beyond the Lemala Gate entrance on the descent road into the crater, Ang’ata Ngorongoro Camp facilitates early morning game drives for its guests. Following the morning wildlife viewing, visitors can return to the camp for a delectable lunch prepared by the skilled chefs. An adjacent lounge, nestled under the acacia trees, offers a relaxing spot in the afternoon. Situated on the eastern rim of Ngorongoro Crater near Crater Lodge, the camp is located just inside the conservation area boundaries. This advantageous placement allows for early access to the crater floor, providing an opportunity to explore the UNESCO World Heritage site before the arrival of other visitors. The crater is home to approximately 25,000 animals year-round, excluding Maasai giraffes, which avoid the steep crater slopes. One of the top sightings for guests is the endangered black rhinos, with around 23 individuals remaining in the area. In addition to the incredible wildlife, nearby Maasai villages offer guests opportunities for cultural learning and immersion. Combining its strategic location for wildlife viewing, comfortable amenities, and proximity to the Maasai community, Ang’ata Ngorongoro Camp serves as an ideal base in the Ngorongoro Highlands.
