To get there as such is an adventure and is really amaizing if you love nature, landscape and friendly people. The camp it self is overwhelmingly situated: nicely arranged, tents on frames, sheltered by a solid roof, the view to Lake Eyasi spectacular. The facilities are perfect, even the bathroom is perfect, warm water prepared by a wood heated oven (outside the tent). The staff is very friendly and humble, they do what ever you like for you, service orientation is 100%, as well as for children. They made the stay as living in a fairy tale. No complaints at all, just as a hint, if the indian people stay at the bar in the restaurant, it might be a bit noisy, which becomes significant at that quiet place.

The camp was beautifully situated with a gradual drop overlooking a lake which had stunning views of the landscape and sunsets. The restaurant and bar had a good ambiance with attentive, friendly staff serving a selection of dishes that satisfied our vegetarian and meat eating group.
The large tents were on stilts and were luxurious being truly wonderful with plenty of furnishings including dressing table, full length mirror, hanging space and luggage rack. The extremely comfortable beds had a choice of covers and duvets to suit anyone`s taste or desires. There were lovely washrooms with basin and unusually provided with PLUGS and a large shower area. The solar powered lighting had been done with a great deal of thought about the needs of travellers, especially after dark. For my group one of the main delights was that the tents were BUG free as they had excellent mosquito nets not only around the beds but also at entrances to the tent. Our tent had an area on the end that was netted at the sides with armchairs, a coffee table, carpeted and with a view to take your breath away. I will never forget a giraffe looking in at me one night as we stared at each other with curiosity, I was spellbound! Outside was another area with chairs and table. The 5 children in my group absolutely loved this place and the accommodation was flexible enough to allow the 3 girls to be in a huge tent altogether as listening to zebras, giraffes and hyenas at night is fun with friends but would have been scary alone. We spent our last 2 nights here before returning to England and it was a terrific experience that all of us will never forget.

We stayed one Night at the wildcamp September 2012. It was our last night in Africa after Mt. Meru, Kilimanjaro and Serengeti and we were surprised that such a wonderful camp located in a amazing area. At the night many zebras and giraffs browsing under the house. It was wonderful to feel Africa so near.

I booked a 7 day safari with Zara Tanzania Adventure and stayed one night in Ngorongoro Wildcamp. See my other reviews of this trip for Highview Hotel, Serengeti Wildcamp and Ikoma Wildcamp.
On my second day we started early to visit the Ngorongoro Crater and slept in Ngorongoro Wild Camp. The way is long, but the camp fantastic; the tents are huge, the food good and also you have a nice view at Lake Eyasi (when the view is clear). During dinner time a Maasai will led you from your tent to the Dining and also accompany you on your way back – that makes you feel save and alert at the same time. Close up on the tents: they are on a platform and every tent face Lake Eyasi, you can sit outside or inside the tent which is divided in two parts; one part with coffee table and comfortable chairs in the front and when you open the tent you can look at the Lake Eyasi through the mosquito net. When you open another zip you enter the part with bed/beds, a small table, a mirror and closet. And the funny part: When you enter the bathroom you step through a door (yes a real door!), this is because the bathroom is only half a part of the tent – it's like a small house, with window, real walls etc. you only notice that you are still in a tent when you look at the “roof”. Electricity and plugs are in all tents – you hardly miss any comfort.
I really enjoyed my stay here, especially the view early in the morning – loved it! The staff in all properties was friendly and helpful.

I spent a night in the camp early this year, in a special trip which did involve four journalists from various media in Tanzania.Its location around Ngorongoro Conservation area is well chosen, but interestingly, the night was beautified by the roaring of lions and hyenas from a distance. Indeed, the hospitality accorded to us, by the management under the compentent service of Mr Priscus Riziki, is highly appreciated. Raphael Kibiriti.
