My, What Commodious Tents You Have!

10,000 square feet of wood and canvas in the middle of nowhere

The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is one of the world’s greatest natural places, home to lions, leopards and the Great Migration, when tremendous herds of wildebeest move between regions.

It is endangered (by development) and gorgeous, and vulnerable to tampering by us meddlesome humans. 

All those reasons are why the Highlands Camp — consisting of eight, low-impact geodesic domes — is so impressive, designed, as it is, to interfere with the surroundings as little as possible. The domes, at 10,000 square feet and up, are positioned to provide access to the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area, traditionally inhabited by the Maasai people. 

If you’ve ever dreamed about waking up to sunrise over the African plain, this could definitely be your best bet. 

Slightly more bustling activities include safari game drives, hikes in the crater and prepping for climbs up Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Tanzania (and Africa).
