On your first night, you will be accommodated at a hotel in Arusha. You will camp just outside of Manyara on your second night and rest at Simba Campsite in Ngorongoro Crater on your third night. On your fourth night, you will be staying at Seronera Campsite. Lastly, you will be accommodated at Arusha Center Inn Hotel on your last night.

Simba Campsite

Simba Campsite lies on the very rim of Ngorongoro Crater and has an excellent view across the caldera. A fantastic sunrise over the crater rim makes a fine breakfast scene. Often there are elephants wandering around the camp. This campsite is guarded. Tents have mats and bathrooms are outside of the tent.

Facilities at Simba Campsite are basic, but this is more than made up for by the atmosphere of this camp in the clouds. It has basic facilities and can get very crowded, so the hot water sometimes runs out. Even so, it's a fine location and by far the cheapest place to stay up on the rim.

Seronera Campsite

The public campsites which are collectively called Seronera Campsite are located in the Central Serengeti area known as the Seronera.
