We stayed at Ang'ata camp for two nights in March. The camp is set in a secluded spot, on the rim overlooking Ngorongoro crater. The setting is almost completely undisturbed and it truly feels like you're deep in the woods.

The tents are well equipped (see photos) and nicely furnished. Each tent has running water, toilet and shower. Like all camps, the showers are "bucket filled", so when you're ready for a hot shower, the staff will run over with 10 or 20 liters of steaming hot water. They fill an overhead bucket which provides water pressure to the shower. All in all, it was pretty darn good.

The staff was exceptionally friendly and were always asking if we needed anything. During dinner, they sneak out to your tent and put heated water bottles in the beds. Amazing! They call them bush babies. It's the little touches which makes all the difference.

Also, this is the absolute closest camp to the entrance of the crater. It's impossible to be any closer. The gate opened at 6AM and we were the first to descend in the morning. This is extremely important because it gets quite crowded as the day rolls on.

I've included some of my crater pictures, with the morning light shining on the lions; you want to be the first to enter the crater!

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.

We spent the last night of our safari at Ang'ata Camp Ngorongoro, arriving in a downpour after a long drive from Serengeti. Despite the rain and the cold, the staff made our stay very special. The tents were very comfortable, including warm robes after a hot shower, and the food was delicious. The special surprise after dinner was returning to your tents and finding bush babies (hot water bottles) in your bed.
The location of this camp is ideal, inside the park and very near one of the entries into the Crater. We asked for an early breakfast the next morning which was ready when we arrived at the dining tent. As a result, we were in the Crater at least an hour before the crowds.
We would highly recommend this camp!

On the rim of the caldera. Great layout of the tent, bed facing the valley. Delicious food. We were the only ones in the camp that night which meant we got extra special service, from the hot water bottles placed in our beds and the surprise private dinner served in our tent, Julius and the staff know how to treat guests with top notch service. The tent was luxurious with shower and proper toilet, and it was the small touches again, such as the slippers and bathrobes, which are perhaps not necessary, but which made the difference. Attention to detail is truly what stood out in this camp. We enjoyed the outdoor sofa bench, the view, and were lucky enough to hear elephants, zebras and buffalos during the night. In spite of being at an altitude of 2300m, we didn't feel the cold when inside our tent.

Basecamp Tanzania booked us into this camp in September 2013. It was a little oasis at the end of a terribly long drive. The cool height of this camp was a relief, and the surrounding trees beautiful. However, the camp had a spooky, vacant quality--we discovered why when we found that we were the only guests that evening. The whole place had a hush to it, and that included the staff--it was as though since there was only two guests, they had to stay quiet and hidden. We heard none of the staff speaking among themselves, ever! This was also one of the few places where we had some communication problems and requesting hot water for a shower led to confusion until we pointed. Dinner was absolutely excellent, and it was very nice to be able to buy a decent wine by the glass. Tents were also very good, and a bathrobe and slippers were provided, a lovely touch. It got very cold, and we were ready for bed early---it was a nice surprise to find hot water bottles laid in the bed for us. However, in the morning at our arranged breakfast time, we found the mess tent shut up tight and no one around. Once we poked around and unzipped a few tent zips around the lounge, someone at last came and got things rolling. A good stay over all, but we wouldn't book here again.
