The Highlands – Asilia

A spectacular safari camp in the scenic Ngorongoro highlands

The spirit of The Highlands

The spectacular Asilia Highlands combines a cutting-edge, open design with an intimate setting within the lush forest that sprawls along the slopes of the Olmoti volcano. Stylish and contemporary, The Highlands balances its striking design with a deeply authentic wilderness experience in an exclusive setting. Just eight canvas-and-glass domed suites draw their inspiration from the enchanting Maasai bomas that dot the landscape. Guests can expect warm and contemporary interiors that offer the perfect atmosphere to unwind after a successful day of game viewing.

Guest areas include a well-stocked library, cosy bar area and luxuriously comfortable sitting areas that surround an indoor fireplace. Hearty gourmet meals are prepared with only the freshest organic ingredients and are served in a variety of dining areas. Adventures include game drives in the Ngorongoro Crater, community and cultural visits and hiking along Maasai cattle trails through the various habitats of the Olmoti volcano.

What we love about The Highlands

  • Sit down for lunch with a renowned lion researcher who will offer fascinating insight into the relationships of the various lion prides in the area.
  • Embark on an exclusive excursion into the Empakaai crater. This hiking adventure offers the opportunity to view the pink flamingos that congregate on the shores of the soda lake.
