Pakulala Camp is a good standard of tented camp situated on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater with fantastic views. It is a small, intimate and relaxed camp in true safari style unlike the larger chains of lodges also present on the rim. The guiding is good and it represents great value when compared to others around.

The tented rooms are of a similar standard to its sister camps Kirurumu Tarangire and Lake Manyara, being comfortable with stylish simplicity. It’s a good choice for those who want to spend a bit more time in the area. The upside to this camp is that although it is located in one of the busiest areas in Tanzania, it is off the beaten track.

If guests find themselves with a spare afternoon or morning and tire of the stunning view, there are lovely walks to Olmoti mountain or cultural visits to Maasai villages, although these excursions can feel rather busy and commercial.
