This is a very belated review. My wife and I stayed two nights at Ang'ata Ngorongoro Camp early in October 2013. This was the least "fancy" of the four tented camps we stayed at on our safari (two others were Asilia camps and the fourth was an Elewana camp). But service and comfort did not suffer at all in comparison. It meant only that our tent was not quite as spacious and did not have similar appointments, such as brass-hinged chests. The tent was plenty roomy, and the bed was large and very comfortable--and warmed by hot-water bottles in the evening. We had plenty of hot water for our showers. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Meals were delicious. The location of the camp is the best part. It is in a forest of umbrella acacia trees on the rim of the crater. There's a great view across the valley (not into the crater). Best of all, it is actually inside the crater entrance on the road down into the crater, so it is a perfect spot from which to start an early morning game drive to the floor of the crater.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The camp is situated right after Lemala Gate, inside the Craters boundaries on the Lemala descent road, currently also being used as ascent road, ideally situated for early morning game drives into the Crater. After your game drive you may return to camp for a delicious lunch prepared by our chefs, then a lounge adjacent to the Mess tent awaits you for your afternoon relaxation and a cup of Tea in the shadow of the acacia forest. ... more less
