The camp has a quite and isolated location with plenty of bird-life, and frequent visits by buffalo and elephant at night. The crater walls are densely forested but four wheel drive vehicles can take you down into this original paradise of woodland, lake, river, swamp and plain that shelters around 40,000 animals. Large grazing animals such as wildebeest, buffalo, gazelle and zebra depend on the open grasslands in the crater. These attract the attendant predators, the black-maned lion, the leopard and hyena. The elephant found within the caldera tend to be the lone males who have left the herds in the forested crater rim.
The Fever Tree forests shelter monkeys, bushbuck and waterbuck along with a few black rhino that have taken shelter here. A soda lake, fed by the Munge river attracts water birds, including flamingos and is a favourite place for predators to find their prey.
The Manyara Airstrip is 2 hours drive from the camp.
The camp has quick and easy access into the Crater floor. Game drives from the camp may start as early as 6.15am and there is no time wasted at the gate as you can drive straight down to the floor within 10 to 15 minutes.
The camp is in close proximity to Ol Moti and Empakai craters, which are known for beautiful landscapes and scenery.
Escorted walks are available along with the game drives into the forest and along the crater rim with an armed ranger and a Maasai.
