Amid the Olmoti Volcano’s jungled flanks, the luxury geodomes of this revolutionary safari getaway bubble up on the northern edge of the Ngorongoro Crater. Remote, with Olympian views across Africa, this is a truly unique location for your East Africa safari.
Why We Love It
Not only does the location provide unbelievable views, but it’s also the only camp capable of offering a convenient half-day excursion to the Empakaai Crater. A trek through the forest with expert NCA rangers brings you to a panorama of elephants buffalo, and a lake turned pink by its huge population of flamingos. A must.
The camp, set away from the other lodges near the crater, ensures a sense of exclusivity while still offering superb access to one of East Africa’s most popular safari destinations.
Embedded in the thriving jungle of the Olmoti Volcano, the Highlands is perfectly placed for seeing nature both in sweeping panoramas from your windows or up close on game walks. It’s on the edge of the UNESCO-listed Ngorongoro Crater, an ancient volcanic caldera that’s East Africa’s most reliable location to see the Big Five.
Beneath the Wagnerian birdsong surrounding the Highlands, the underbrush nearby is frequently rustled by the flanks of passing elephants or, if you’re very lucky, a leopard. Ornate butterflies at rest on branches pass for exotic flowers. A mountain hike from your room can be almost as exhilarating as the early morning game drives that catching the animals before the heat of the day pushes them off for a snooze in the shade.
WHAT MAKES THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?
The Highlands’ accommodation is unique in East Africa, a blend of modern design and Maasai inspiration. As the highest camp in the region, the panoramic Perspex windows are the dome’s dominant feature. Whether you’re relaxing on your spacious wooden balcony or cozy by the wood burner, the golden hour landscape with its jungled mountains and plains will amaze you.
Despite the camp’s lofty station, you won’t feel any disconnect with the country and people below. With Maasai culture interwoven into the camp culture, you’ll learn all about this region in a way that’ll make you feel part of the community.
Eight canvas and perspex en-suite domes; wood-burning stove in each
Honeymoon suite with hot tub; family tent, accommodating children over the age of five
Guided activities including game drives, cultural visits, and hiking
Well-stocked library and dining room
