Kisima Ngeda Tented Camp
- 7 tents
- En-suite bathroom
Kisima Ngeda Tented Camp is situated on the shores of Lake Eyasi, with sweeping views toward the Rift. Across this seasonal soda lake, the Alipi escarpment wall rises 2,000 feet up into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area providing a stunning backdrop. The camp is beautifully set in a Llala palm and acacia forest and is part of 200 acre family owned farm with a natural spring nearby which feeds into the lake. It is also home to the Wahadzabe, an ancient, nomadic tribe of bushmen who are one of the last click-speaking hunter-gatherer tribes.
The camp itself consists of seven tents built on permanent platforms and a large dining tent. All of these are thatched with traditional palm fronds and the en-suite bathroom is built with natural palm stems, giving it a rustic appearance. There is hot and cold running water supplied by a spring and heated through environmentally friendly ‘kuni boilers’ that burn dry palm fronds that have fallen from the trees. Toilets are flush type and there is a proper septic system in place. Furniture and bedding is comfortable and in keeping with traditional safari style. Each of the tents has a beautiful view of the lake.
A melting pot of culture, Kisima Ngeda offers a unique experience. Here, you can actually get out of the car and explore the trails around the lake, canoe along the shore, mountain bike by baobabs and acacias, walk through nearby tribal villages, or just sit and enjoy the beautiful lake views (especially at sunset on top of the rock). While it’s possible to see wildlife, what makes Kisima Ngeda truly special is the opportunity to visit with the local tribes.
