Location

It is the only campsite on the crater rim owned by the Conservation Area Authority. It is on the south-western rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, about 2 km from the crater village. 9 It has long-drop toilets and hot water showers that are heated by wood fires. There is also firewood for sale there, too. A short walk away, you can see a beautiful view of the crater.

The rim woodlands are full of wild animals, so you should move with care. It is possible to go to the bars and restaurants at the lodge after dark, but be careful because many animals move around at night. From an African point of view, the campsite can get very cold and noisy at night.
