Things to do in Tanzania

Dine in style on the Ngorongoro Crater floor

Guests can smell the BBQ cooking and are amazed to see a bar and tables set up for a feast on the crater floor …

By Steven James
Safari Guide at Lemala Ngorongoro Tented Camp

Enjoy a special bush lunch right on the Ngorongoro crater floor, surrounded by wildlife. Ngorongoro Tented Camp is just a 15-minute drive from the crater, so we’re usually the first ones there around 6.30am, ready to explore the heritage site’s diverse mix of lakes, forests and plains which are home to a large concentration of wildlife. Before lunch, we spend a few hours spotting members of the Big Five, migratory birds and grazing game, not to mention endangered rhinos who thrive on the crater floor.

By this point in their trip, most guests are used to having simple picnic boxes on their game drives, so I love surprising them with our lavish crater floor bush lunch. As we drive into the private picnic spot, the guests can smell the BBQ cooking and are amazed to see a bar and tables set up for the feast. There’s a range of freshly-cooked hot meat as well as salads and sides to enjoy. As you eat, you’re surrounded by beautiful scenery; swamps where hippos wallow and acacia trees filled with birds and monkeys.
