I stayed at Lemala Ngorongoro while on Safari in July of this year (I thought I'd already posted the review). This camp was amazing. The tents were nicely decorated and very clean. The overall accomodations were lovely and created the feel of a "real safari" experience. The meals were plentiful and delicious...I'm still amazed by how much they produce in those tiny, outdoor kitchens.
The greatest part of this camp was the staff (especially Godwin the manager). They went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. At dinner, my wine glass was never empty. The staff was so attentive that they noticed my sister and cousin did not eat their entree for dinner one evening (pork was served which they do not eat). They immediately asked what the issue was and attempted to make a new meal. My sister and cousin refused however, the next evening, fish was served.
We received turn down service with hot water bottles to keep warm, pop corn snacks during our evening drinks and the most incredible boxed lunches.
The location of this camp is key as you easily enter the crater in the mornings and don't risk getting stuck in traffic.
