Tourist Information - Accommodations

Within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, with the exception of Simbať near the NCAA headquarters, the campsites are all classified as "special campsites".

This means that they are for exclusive use, and generally have no facilities. Usually they are designed for self sufficient safari operations which bring everything with them. Most are large sites, but a few of them, e.g. on the rim of Empakaai Crater, are designed for small numbers of back- packers. Camping generally is not allowed in the Crater itself. Book campsites through the NCAA headquarters office or in Arusha-Ngorongoro Information Center.

There are luxury lodges situated within and outside the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Names and contacts of those lodges are:
