Set in the wild landscape of the northern reaches of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, The Highlands hugs the dramatic slopes of the Olmoti volcano. Beautiful volcanic terrain surrounds this stylish camp, crisscrossed by ancient Maasai trails that link traditional bomas.
The camp combines remoteness with elegant comfort, positioned to make the most of the unspoilt wilderness that spreads into the distance. Inventive dome-shaped tents provide panoramic views from transparent fronts, whilst inside warmth and modern amenities provide a wonderful sanctuary. Just eight of these tents dot the volcanic slopes, each one featuring en-suite facilities, a wood-burning stove and hot running water.
Whilst located away from the crater rim, The Highlands offers excellent access to the northern side of the Ngorongoro Crater. Activities available include game drives on the crater floor, nature walks on the Olmoti volcano, hikes into the Empakaai Crater and visits to local Maasai communities.
WHY WE LIKE IT
It’s all about location at The Highlands. The views set it apart from other camps, whilst it sits in an area rarely visited by tourist traffic. Remote, wild and beautifully designed, this camp effortlessly melds a feeling of stylish comfort and unspoilt wilderness.
