Nestled beneath a quiet grove of red thorn acacia trees, high atop the eastern rim of the Ngorongoro Crater is Lions Paw Camp. One of a only a few tented properties located in the Ngorongoro Crater Area, this camp of nine tents is ideal for those looking to escape the tourist congestion associated with the lodge accommodations. The campsite was carefully selected for its sense of privacy and intimacy with nature, its panoramic views of the Crater Highlands, and its proximity to the crater floor, a mere 10 minutes! It’s the only accommodation in the Crater area that allows you to experience the beauty of the Crater floor before the crowds descend. Another benefit is that you can return to camp for hot lunch thereby avoiding the one crowded picnic area and public loo.
