Our stay at Ngorongoro Wildcamp was so intimate and special that you have to experience it to understand it. The location is amazing that from our beautifully furnished room we could enjoy jaw dropping views the beautiful of Rift Valley far below. It was just enchanting sitting on our room balcony enjoying beautiful sunset in the tranquil soroundings.
The staffs were attentive and helpful including the elegant Masai guards that escorted us to dinner and back to our room. Food was fine and just right, honestly this was the best lodge experience on our trip.

The 2 nights we spent in Ngorongoro Wildcamp are unforgettable. Our room was comfortable, spacious and spotless, it was set in a stunning location overlooking the rift-valley dotted with lakes and stunning scenery. There are resident monkeys, giraffes and gazelles that live in the bushes bordering the camp
The staffs were nice and warm, helping us find our way around the camp. They did a great job of looking after us. They treated us to great meals including the packed lunch and snacks for safari.
We will definitely return for another visit.

My family stayed at Ngorongoro Wildcamp as part of our Tanzania safari. The tent rooms themselves are simply gorgeous with marvelous views of the surrounding bush and panorama of rift valley down below fading into the horizon. But what makes this establishment different is the homely feeling and warmth by staff, they did everything to make us comfortable including organizing for Halal meals for us and very delicious. There were special moments like watching giraffes munching on a shrub very close to our room, wow! We had a pleasant experience and would recommend other people to give it a try

The lovely people at Africa Safaris said stay at NW, yes it will cost a few £'s more, but it will be worth it, and it was - in spades!

A little off the beaten track, but with views to die for this is a top notch wildcamp.

Our "tent" was palacial with the most stunning views over the lake and Rift Valley. The food was excellent, the staff and service top draw

Superb and worth every penny - go!

We stayed at the luxurious Ngorongoro Wildcamp after returning from Serengeti, it was comfortable and very homely providing for all our needs as the tents was equipped with everything one would need on safari. The staff were professional and friendly making us feel like Kings as they took care of us. The food was super fine as the chef took care of our dietary restrictions.
The camp is set in a great location with heavenly views of sunrise over eastern valleys and magical sunsets over Ngorongoro highlands.

It is not only located in a great location with spectacular views of the rift-valley but the camp is a comfortable home away from home where all our needs were satisfied. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed and swanky clean bathroom.
We enjoyed the food too but the magic that will draw us back again to camp is its amazing location! We even had monkeys and giraffes right within the camp and we are glad that we had Maasai warriors to escort us to our tent and pick us in the morning.
EXCELLENT

Our stay at the Ngorongoro Wildcamp was truly Magical. We stayed in a room with the in a room w/ the most amazing view of the Great Rift Valley coupled by the wonderful service by staff. Monkeys, giraffes and warthogs would appear from the nearby bushes and come so close to our room. The spacious room is thoughtfully laid out with a kingsize comfortable bed, a couch inside and seats on the balcony for the panoramic sunsets.
Needless to say that 3 days passed superfast and we did not want to leave this oasis in Ngorongoro

It was a very unique and special experience at Ngorongoro Wildcamp. This was our first time to stay inside a game protected area with no fences or barriers between the camp and wild animals. Waking up to giraffes close our room is unforgettable! The camp is built on a hill overlooking the Great Rift Valley we enjoyed glorious sunrises and sunsets views from our raised porch.
Camp manager Innocent runs a very tight ship, this made us feel wanted and relaxed. Attentive and committed made our stay comfortable and enchanting that we did not want to leave.

Its been 3 weeks since our safari but I cannot get the beautiful views and breathtaking sunsets from our room and restaurant from my mind. It was a great two days at the camp. The tent rooms are very nice, though can be a bit chilly from the draught blowing from the plains below, luckily we closed the drapes and got hot water bottles.
The food was very good by any standards, actually the best we had in Tanzania with delightful staff around us.

We truly had an amazing time at Ngorongoro Wildcamp during our recent stay. The lodge is located within Ngorongoro Conservation Area, nestled high up on the highlands. The lodge is beautifully designed, each guest tent room was amazing, quite spacious, beautifully adorned with nice rustic furniture, clean bathroom/toilet with all the amenities and an amazing view of the surrounding forest and valleys below from the patio.
We still talk about Suka the manager for his warm welcome and his able team for their superb service. All requests were honored with a smile.
I highly recommend a day or two at this amazing place.
