What we love about Lion's Paw Camp

It's got jaw-dropping views - From one of the many vantage points at the camp, take in the stunning waters of Lake Magadi at the base of the historic Ngorongoro Crater. With a pair of binoculars, you might even spot elephants and the endangered black rhino. 

It's the perfect base for adventure - Situated only ten minutes away from the entrance to the crater, it's the perfect place to get a good nights rest before a day of exploring - the camp can even arrange for you to be taken down at your convenience. 

It offers a cultural experience - The neighbours of Lion's Paw Camp are the colourful Maasai bomas. Be welcomed into their homes and immerse yourself in the lifestyle of the people who have lived here for generations.

About Karibu Camps and Lodges

The name 'Karibu' directly translates into 'Welcome' in Swahili, and they certainly live up to this name. Each camp and lodge invited you in with Tanzanian charm with comforts and adventure. From your Karibu lodge, experience the most iconic parks that surround it: Serengeti and Ngorongoro. 

Achieving a perfect balance between the wilderness and luxury, Karibu Camps and Lodges is an experience in itself. Embark on safaris on the endless savannah plains, explore the dense forests and traverse over the terrains and grasslands during the day, and come home to unmatched comfort and quality at the heart of it all.
