Travelers' Choice
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 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! Throughout the year Lions Paw Camp provides the opportunity to view lions, cheetahs, elephant and Buffalo, but even more exciting is the chance to see the rare black rhino.

A Great camp, amazing view, very friendly staff especially dining, awesome ambience, excellent food including packed meal services. Very cold conditions, a fire chimney in the room, would be a cherry on top of a cake.

Boy it was a bit of a challenge to get there but so worth it. The view of the crater is second to none. They had a sundowner party on the front deck with a fire and all drinks were included. Staff was amazing and then a private dinner out in the yard by candlelight and 2 fires to keep us warm. It was the best view and the staff made the trip worthwhile. Accommodations were very very nice also .......recommend for sure
