What our travelers say

“The balcony where Pakulala Camp it's found, the charming tend with its many details, the diferent amenities they offer.... everything was so comforting like the amability of the staff working on it. It is also difficult to tell which of the dinners was the most tasteful. The silence during the night, the magic of the place, and the excellent location makes this Camp totally worthy.”

"Worthy 100%"

“This tented camp is located in Ngorongoro Conservation Area, at the edge of the rim. It is smaller than the one in Serengeti, but this makes it very special. The views of the crater are wonderful, and I think it's the only camp having any views. The staff is very warming and attentive. The tents are big enough, comfortable and provided of anything you may need, with small details that make the difference between camping and glamping. You can't imagine how luxurious it can be! There is no current power, but solar, so you can't use hairdryer for example, and you need to request them if you need to charge any electronic device. But I think it's more than understandable, and it keeps the idea of eco-friendly with the environment and animals. The weather can be a bit cold and very windy, specially at night, but now you are warned, so no excuses! In the evening, before dinner, they prepare a fireplace, so that you can feel warmer enjoying the amazing views. They also give you some drinks and snacks. Food is delicious and the selection of wines and spirits is also very good. Specially at night, some wild animals can come closer to the camp. The staff will take you to your tent when needed, so no big deal, your are more than safe. Even so, they advise you to remain inside your tent during the night. But this is adventure, right? For us it was a great experience to hear the sound of nature while sleeping.”

"Wonderful place and service!"

“The camp is beautiful, spotless and comfortable with delicious food and they catered to our every need. It was a very cold night when we were there and when we got back to our tents we found 2 wonderful hot water bottles in our beds. They took the chill off and made our beds so lovely and warm. It was a surprise and a treat.”

"Lovely surprise"
