How Entamanu was built

Meaning ‘circle’ in Maa, the language of the Maasai, Entamanu is the perfect name for our understated luxury camp on the Ngorongoro Crater edge. We thought long and hard about how to ‘be’ in this ancient place and were resolute that leave no impact should we ever leave. And we’re proud to say we achieved our goals!

Elemental and wild

Typical. Of all the possible sites encircling this unique wildlife Shangri-la, we pick the wild and woolliest. Following one of the world’s most stunning private drives, we bring you to a soft edge of oxygenated, elemental Africa with heady panoramas spinning forward into the Crater and back across the Serengeti Plains.

This is a place to slow down, breathe, feel Ngorongoro’s rhythms under your feet and look deeper, through Maasai eyes.
