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.

Property's Favorite Review
We cannot say enough about our experience we had at Lions Paw. Not only was it so beautiful and closest to the Crater, it was the wonderful people (Klaus among others) that made this camp one of our favorites, and we will miss our new friends till we see them again. A factor that also needs to be emphasized is the food!! Their food is prepared by EXCELLENT chefs with attention to detail on taste!! Overall, any traveler who chooses Lions Paw will not be disappointed!! We can hardly wait to visit again!

We spent one night at Lions Paw after our safari day in Ngorongoro Crater. It was a great choice. Facilities were amazing - as was the service and the meals. We didn't really know what to expect from a "tented camp", but the tents were literally like hotel rooms and the facilities were great.

this was a tented camp high on the edge of the Ngorongoro crater. Accommodations were excellent-- as was food. Our trip was in July, and it was quite cold at the top, but the staff provided hot water bottles in the beds that kept us very comfortable. We booked this as part of Ashanti Safari tours-- The road we took to get up and back was rather rough, I think it was being worked on. We arrived late and left early-- but on the way back down came face to face with a lion! This is a small camp that offers a quiet and comfortable experience.
