Entamanu Private

A private highland retreat overlooking the Ngorongoro Crater. There is surely no truer way to appreciate the magnitude and wonder of the Ngorongoro Crater, than from Entamanu Private where it's done entirely on your own terms and schedules. A highland retreat designed to be entirely removable with minimal impact on this precious place, this is your exclusive Crater experience.

Four glass, wood and stretched-canvas rooms, two of which are family units made cozy with heaters, warm textiles and sheepskin look across the iconic Crater view, with a backdrop of ancient acacia trees. The style here is as unique as the location - everything carefully handcrafted locally to the highest standard.

There’s nothing tame about this location – the high altitude sun has some real heat and the wind can be biting and sometimes noisy. Nomad Tanzania have taken up the challenge to create a camp that makes the most of the extraordinary view while providing warmth and shelter from the elements, while being entirely removable. Every design detail has been considered in light of this, while still providing comfort in this elemental place.

Double Room (4 rooms)
Two timber, glass and stretched-canvas rooms overlooking the iconic Ngorongoro Crater. All with gas stove heaters, verandahs with views over the Crater, and en-suite bathroom facilities.

Family room
Two family units made up of two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. The two bedrooms are connected through the bathrooms. All with gas stove heaters, verandahs with views over the Crater, and en-suite bathroom facilities.

Ngorongoro Crater game drives
A big highlight of any stay here, the Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa's most iconic wildlife destinations. The beauty of Entamanu Private is that it sits within the Conservation area and only 30 minutes drive from the descent road into the Crater. An early start is highly recommended to enjoy the Crater before the majority of visitors make it in from other camps. You will set off with your guide and a packed breakfast and return to camp in time for lunch. Or, head out in the afternoon and enjoy sundowners on the rim on your way back to camp.

Guided walks
Entamanu Private offers guided walks along the rim of the Crater and in the surrounding highlands. You will head out with your guide and a member of the local Maasai community and learn all about medicinal plants, Maasai beliefs, as well as track any local wildlife that has wondered close to camp. Walks are all about soaking up the view at a slower pace and learning to appreciate the little things and they come highly recommended. Walks at Entamanu need to be pre-booked.

Into the Boma
Sometimes we drop round to see our Maasai neighbours, who are living a largely traditional life in the boma in the next valley, and still grazing their cattle in the conservation area. It will be just us and them, and a warm welcome, with insights into the pastoral life, from building huts to warrior ceremonies.
