The Highlands Ngorongoro redefine the Ngorongoro Crater experience. Balanced on the edge of the mountain forest, hugging the Olmoti volcano to the north of Ngorongoro Crater, The Highlands concoct a perfect mix of an authentic wilderness experience and an upscale contemporary escape with just 8 suites in beautifully domed tents.
From these high altitude mountainous accommodations, you look straight out over the Ngorongoro Crater through floor-to-ceiling windows. All plush domed tents are equipped with huge beds and ensuite bathrooms featuring hot showers and flush toilets – in this tent you are definitely not camping! A family suite that sleeps six is also available in a large domed tent, where a mezzanine level ensure enough space. Most conveniently, there is smaller domed tent across the deck for older kids. The honeymoon suite is a great introduction to a new and exciting life; the suite has an outdoor jacuzzi for those chilly nights, a double headed shower, a crackling fireplace, and a king sized bed.
Because of the altitude, guests are spoiled with enclosed fireplaces that make for toasty toes and noses on colder evenings. A beautiful open-air breakfast deck turns the warmer early mornings into special occasions. Wondering about electricity in a high altitude setting? Well everything here is efficiently solar powered for your convenience. And to top it off, the Empakai Crater and Oldoinyo Lengai are nearby. Make a beautiful roadtrip to the end of the road at the Empakai Crater or climb Oldoinyo Lengai – the only active volcano that emits natrocarbonatites, or so called cold lava.
