Ngorongoro – Accommodation

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a pioneering experiment in multiple land use. The park has multiple purposes of integrating the protection of the local people with that of wild nature.

The area is part of the Serengeti ecosystem and, to the northwest, adjoins the Serengeti National Park and is contiguous with the southern Serengeti plains.

These plains also extend to the north into the unprotected Loliondo division and are kept open to wildlife through transhumance pastoralism practiced by the Maasai.

The south and west of the area are volcanic highlands, including the famous Ngorongoro Crater and the lesser-known Empakaa Crater.

The southern and eastern boundaries are approximately defined by the rim of the East African Rift Wall, which also prevents animal migration in these directions.

If you plan to visit Ngorongoro or any other destination in Tanzania no need to fear where to stay. There are many camps and lodges in and outside the Ngorongoro crater ranging from budget and midrange to Luxury.

There are two campsites inside the Ngorongoro crater Simba A and Simba B campsite.

Simba A campsite

Is a public campsite inside the Ngorongoro conservation area located in the South-East of the crater rim. This camp has two dinings, two kitchens, and two sets of toilets.

The Simba A campsite is the largest and most useful than Simba B by being closer to the crater and Loduare gate where most tourists come from.

For those planning to visit Olduvai Gorge, there is no long-distance from the road. Remember to bring warm clothes because the camp is cold in the morning and at night.

Simba B campsite

Is one of the public campsites in Ngorongoro located on the South-Eastern rim of the Ngorongoro crater. This camp is next to an airstrip with an amazing view of the crater.

For anyone who needs to use this camp, must make an earlier booking. Simba B is the location of the tented camp, so you can also book it.

There are many luxury lodges inside Ngorongoro. It just depends if you want a mid-range or a luxury one. Not only lodges but also luxury private camps.
