Lemala Camps & Lodges Announces New Lodge in Tanzania

Lemala Camps and Lodges, the owner and operator of luxury safari accommodations in Tanzania and Uganda, has unveiled its latest addition, Lemala Osonjoi Lodge, on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater. The new retreat will welcome guests starting March 1, 2025.

The Ngorongoro Crater is famous for its landscapes and abundant wildlife, and the new Lemala Osonjoi Lodge is positioned to take advantage of its location on the crater rim, less than 820 feet from the current Lemala Ngorongoro Tented Camp. Lemala Osonjoi Lodge offers panoramic views of the crater floor below, with access to the floor of the crater via the lesser-used Lemala access road down to the eastern quadrant of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lemala Osonjoi Lodge guests, therefore, enjoy privileged access to prime game-viewing opportunities as they are always among the first to arrive on the Crater floor each morning—and the last to leave each evening.

Each of the property’s 20 suites is furnished with Lemala’s signature plush bedding and natural materials. Set close to 8,000 feet above sea level on the highlands around the Ngorongoro Crater, which means cool days and chilly nights, Lemala Osonjoi Lodge offers slow-burning log stoves in suites that use sustainably sourced firewood. The property’s communal pool is heated using specially developed solar panels and sits behind floor-to-ceiling windows with expansive views over this wildlife territory.
