The Highlands redefines the Ngorongoro experience, raising the bar for low-impact yet high-style camps. Carefully positioned for maximum privacy high on the slopes of the Olmoti Crater, our guests enjoy sweeping views all the way to the Serengeti. The inspiration for the eight canvas geodesic domed suites draws from the traditional Maasai bomas that dot the landscape. Warm, intimate and contemporary, this is quite simply the perfect place from which to discover the wild and pristine Crater Highlands. At the heart of the camp is an authentic indoor fireplace designed to emulate the traditional East African campfire experience. Delve into the library or enjoy a drink from our whisky dome and unwind in comfort and style at the end of each rewarding day.
