We thought long and hard about how to "be" in this place.
Our camp is entirely removable, and yet each space has been designed with comfort in mind, no small feat in this elemental place.
Surrounded by the soaring peaks of dormant volcanic hills and the ebb and flow of Maasai pastoralist life.
Entamanu (meaning ‘circle’ in Maa) is a place to explore beyond the hustle and bustle of the tourist trail.
Up here on the Crater Rim, the elements are king.
We have designed the camp to provide shelter from the high-altitude sun, and warmth against the cold with fires, wool rugs and sheepskin.
This is the Ngorongoro Crater.
But, more than this, it is Nomad’s safari to the Crater, which will have to be seen to be believed. Although Entamanu Ngorongoro will be open year round, we have pledged to make our camp completely removable, as though we were coming with the sun, living large, and then disappearing with the rains, leaving no trace. As though we have melted away.
“Up in this air you breathed easily, drawing in a vital assurance and lightness of
heart.” Karen Blixen, Out Of Africa
A place from which to not only visit the Crater, but to understand it as part of a wider environment.
As is our habit, we've designed and sourced locally as much as possible.
Unique pieces inspired by the fine craftsmanship of Maasai master beaders meld with exquisitely designed and crafted wooden furniture, bespoke wool and cotton textiles and hand-crafted glass.
There's so much more to the Crater than meets the eye.
There's no doubt that the wildlife here is special, but the ever-changing landscapes, ancient culture and history makes up the whole.
