An unforgettable journey best taken on foot

Entamanu is the only place in the world where you can see the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti plains from the same spot. And in our determination to mould your Crater experience a little differently, we highly recommend you take the unique opportunity to walk from Entamanu to Serengeti Safari Camp.

This is surely one of the most dramatic walks in the world with magnificent views across the Serengeti, Olduvai Gorge and the Gol Mountains as you descend off the back of the Ngorongoro Crater rim and down onto the edge of the Southern Serengeti plains.

Walk the wonder of the world

Start early with coffee before you wend your way along ancient cattle trails through high-altitude meadows, past picturesque Maasai Bomas and Acacia woodlands, revealing stunning views of Lemakarot Mountain as you gradually descend to the endless plains of the Serengeti.

The transition from the montane Crater highlands all the way down to the infinity of the Serengeti plains is a gradual yet dramatic change in landscape, navigated in the company of your Maasai guides whose knowledge of this part of the world is steeped in their DNA.

Recommended Camps

A string of camps in some of the wildest places on the planet. A front row seat to the best wildlife in Africa. Backstage is the engine room for opportunity.

Bright skies, sensational views – here’s when to go

This walk is ideal while our migrating mobile camp is down on the southern Serengeti plains in Ndutu between mid-December and March. The air is fresh and brilliantly clear and the outer slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater boast impressive concentrations of giraffe and zebra.
