We camped here for one night, the camping area was very beautiful; green lawn under massive trees. The lodge itself is very friendly and simple. The dining area was very nice, we ate on the lawn with a view of the lake and volcano. They have several local men who act as guides in the area and took us to...

We recently stayed one night in the camp. We were touched by the staff really kind and the good cuisine. Nice room local style. A small natural pool allowed us to refresh during the breaks. We enjoed the interesting excursions to the nearby waterfalls and to the Lake Natron with a Masai guide (Thomas).

Dear Francesco, Asante sana for staying at our camp and writing this review. Natron is a barren land, where the sun beats down relentlessly. Yet, our camp is an oasis of green lawns and shady trees, thanks to the natural irrigation system. Our natural pool offers guests a welcomed cool-down, water is emptied and renewed every three days. Our staff...

This is a real gem. So pure and so full of energy from the people who work there . Everything is about perfect if you keep in mind you're in the middle of nowhere. So if you want to go back to basics this is the perfect place to visit Lake Natron. Not so much visited but if you have...

Dear Dirk, Thank you for staying with us in camp, and for posting this review. Natron is off the beaten track, as you mention, but well worth a visit. Our camp is an oasis, amidst leafy trees, tucked between the Rift Valley and the lake, with a great view of Oldoniyo Lengai. Our Masai staff enjoys sharing stories with our...

The trip from Lake Manyare to Lake Natron Tented Camp was a beautiful one, albeit a bit long. Especially the end gets a little bumpy, if you drive along 'Mountain of God', due to the lava on the road. But the scenery is stunning. And seen as it is not one of Tanzania's most visited places, you do not see...

I have never seen a tent is such a bad shape: the roof and parts of the sides falling off... I even had to patch a dozen holes in the mosquito netting above the bed. However there are some good points: great activities including the Maasai village visit, the walk to Lake Natron and the hike to the waterfalls (be...

Ok, Lake Natron is a long long way from anywhere, and the accommodation options are limited and most appear a little 'interesting'. Be warned, this is not a luxury property but it's not too bad either. There is a campsite, a series of tented 'rooms' plus 3 cabins/ bungalows (I did not see), set amidst a tidy shady pleasant setting...

Quite run down tented camp, in urgent need of at least basic renovations, holes in the roof as well as in the Mosquito nets do not add to a good nights rest. Worst part was however that our 2 safari guides were not offered shelter and asked "to sleep somewhere else". It is a pity that they did not mention...

The camp basically serves groups travelling to see Lake Natron. The least luxurious of the tented camps we stayed in but definitely friendly. Small pool which was nice and our day trip to a nearby waterfall was a fun day out. The lake itself is amazing - a natural wonder difficult to describe.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wild and remote Lake Natron lies in the northeast of Tanzania in betweenthe Ngorongoro Highlands and Serengeti plains. Here it is the landscaperather than the animals that is the attraction - the area around the lakeinhabited by Maasai is dry, desolate and hauntingly beautiful.Situated at the base of Africa's only active volcano Oldonyo Lengai (Mountain of God), Lake Natron is one of the most alkaline lakes in the world. The lake is home to millions of tiny crustaceans, attracting literally thousands of lesser flamingo's and it is therefore one of the most important flamingo breeding grounds on earth.Unique in its setting, Lake Natron Tented Camp is set back in a grove of trees slightly removed from the dusty terrain of the lake. Clean safari tents offer showers, comfortable beds and a private veranda. A fully stocked bar and candle lit restaurant ensure you have a cold drink and delicious food at the end of an arduous climb or long days walking. ... more   less
