This was the second Lemala Camp that we stayed at during our safari in September 2011. My wife and I were impressed. That both camps were great told us that the others are probably nice, too.
We had a wonderful game drive through the Ngorongoro crater. We saw the rare and elusive Black Rhino (mother and calf), as well as lions (including a dead one), herds of gazelles, hyenas, you name it. Topping off the drive by staying at the Ngorongoro Lemala camp was just perfect!
Again, we were impressed with the service, food, wine, and accommodations. Both the Lemala Ngorongoro and Lemala Mara camps were obviously very well-managed. Truly, if you stay at these places you will have a hard time believing you are in the middle of the Serengeti or the top of a crater in Africa.
Be aware though, that the camp is up around 5,000 feet or so. This means it really does get chilly in the evening, so dress appropriately i.e., bring a jacket!
We loved the Lemala camps and would recommend staying there to anyone.More
