General Information

Lake Natron is one of the most alkaline lakes in the world. Home to millions of tiny crustaceans, the lake is a haven for literally thousands of lesser flamingo’s and it is one of the most important flamingo breeding grounds on earth. Here it is the landscape rather than the animals that is the attraction. The area around the lake is inhabited by Maasai and is dry, desolate and hauntingly beautiful. 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.

Inside each tent there is a comfortable four-poster bed with a huge, wooden frame. Mosquito nets hang from these frames, and there’s a table with a can of mosquito spray and two candles. The tent has one main overhead light, but no bedside lights, and there are two luggage shelves for your bags. These tents don’t have fans, so can get quite hot, especially in the warmer months of November through to March.

At the back of each tent, through a curtain, is the en-suite bathroom. It is open-planned and has flush-toilet, a washbasin and a cold shower.

 

Location

Lake Natron Tented Camp is located near Lake Natron. Lake Natron lies in the northeast of Tanzania in between the Ngorongoro Highlands and the Serengeti plains. It is situated at the base of Africa’s only active volcano Oldonyo Lengai in the Great Rift Valley.
