Pakulala Safari Camp

Ngorongoro Crater

Pakulala Safari Camp Location Map

Situated on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, Pakulala Safari Camp is a tented camp set in one of the most beautiful areas in the Ngorongoro Highlands and with stunning views overlooking the crater.

As a small and intimate camp the staff are on hand just to look after a very limited number of guests and so the level of attention and service is always excellent.

The Ngorongoro Crater is on many peoples ‘wish list’ of places to see and visit. This natural wonder is the largest unflooded, intact volcanic caldera in the world. The actual crater is about 20 km across and 600 meters deep, and covers 300 km². Within the rim there are an estimated 30,000 animals, making this one of the densest concentration of wildlife within Africa.

If you choose to stay here longer, the camp has easy access to cultural attractions or can be used as a base for a walk to climb the slopes of nearby Olmoti mountain to the waterfall that breaches its rim to then become the Munge River that feeds a game swamp in the crater. Day trips to one of the most scenically attractive areas of the Conservation Area, Empakai, with its deep lake famous for its flamingos and shore birds and outstanding beauty, can also be arranged, as can visits to the Masai community neighbours - just a 45 minute walk from the camp.

All 11 tents are en-suite and tastefully furnished in an elegant style very reminiscent of the turn of the century safaris. The bathroom has a bucket shower and flushing eco-toilet, and an original local handmade wash basin and mirror. Every tent also has safari chairs to enjoy the starry Tanzanian night from while you relax and mull over your day on your porch.

The main camp has a dining tent for breakfast, lunch and romantic candle-lit dinners, and a campfire area with stunning views across the crater.

Destination: Tanzania.

A 5 night safari holiday followed by 6 nights in a beach hotel on the north-east coast of Zanzibar within steps to a white powder beach. Could you be persuaded? This holiday is best enjoyed in February, when millions of wildebeest calve on the Ndutu plains - but outside of this narrow time frame, the game viewing is still good. From June through November, when the plains are dry and the great herds gone, the resident animals converge around Ndutu's waterholes and marshes - elephants, giraffes, impalas, every kind of cat, and a profusion of birds. From December onwards, the migrating herds of wildebeest make an appearance, and the plains become alive with activity.

This is a 12 night itinerary including Arusha, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Ngorongoro Crater and Zanzibar.
