Stayed 2 nights in late May with my son & daughter- in-law. The furniture and bed was very comfortable, as well as soaking tub and my son enjoyed the outdoor shower at night ( a bit chilly for me). Porch was great to relax on and enjoy the view. Food was very good - cooked by Veronica. The camp had...

Lake Masek Tented Camp is located in the heart of Ndutu wilderness with lots of wildlife around, especially in February when countless migrating wildebeests roam around Ndutu and have their calves. The camp has a small number of spacious, raised, luxury tents with the 24-hr electricity and hot water, mosquito netted comfortable beds, two bathroom sinks, a soaking tab and,...

We really liked the luxury tents they have here! The overall experience is at a very high level with high quality game viewing in the area, and sometimes very very close to the tents ! A Masai with spear will walk you to your tent in the evening just in case ! The ambiance is great as it is a...

We stayed 3 nights at this camp and were so sad to leave. We loved our tent and the gorgeous view. Tents were separated so there was privacy. In fact, one night, some animal/s (we think cape buffalo) wandered into the camp and knocked off the railing along the steps up to our deck. It was kind of scary at...

My husband and I stayed at Lake Masek for 3 nights. Shortly before our departure from home we switched to Lake Masek from a mobile camp because my husband liked the idea of the elevated wooden platforms. This proved to be a good idea as we had torrents of rain one night. The tents are huge and beautiful with outdoor...

My husband and I stayed at Lake Masek Tented Camp for 2 nights in February. The tents are very spacious with beautiful wood furniture, and ours had a great view of the lake from the enclosed patio. The open air shower was also a fun addition, and there was more than enough hot water for two showers. When looking at...

My family (my wife, three boys and their two grandmothers) visited in February. We were due to spend two nights in the permanent tented lodge but, without any warning to us, we were allocated in their nearby temporary tented camp on the first night. This was a lot less luxurious than the permanent camp with much smaller tents and less...

My wife and I stayed at 4 different camps during a 10 day safari in February and March. This was our least favourite. The camp has a perfect location with beautiful views but the tent we stayed in (Massai) was very tired. The shower head fell off when we tried to take a shower. Two of the lamps were broken....

This was a lovely tent camp. The tents were very comfortable with screened in porches and I loved their outdoor private shower. The main lodge was beautiful with a wonderful open deck offering spectacular views. Their chef is very creative and provided us with some very tasty dishes. Staff were very attentive and kind . A great place to relax...
