My nieces thought this was the best lodge we stayed at the entire trip. It was certainly the most luxurious tent we have ever stayed in. Our tent had 3 beds, and there was still plenty of room to walk around. There were nightstands with real lamps on them next to the beds, and the floor was covered with matting.... More

On our recent tour through Northern Tanzania we spent (alas only) 1 night at this Tented Camp bordering beautiful Lake Eyasi. It is such a remote and peaceful place teaming with monkeys, birds and other small animals. I even saw a Monitor lizard. The few tents - big and comfortably with lounge veranda - are arranged along the lake border... More

Situated at the borders of Lake Eyasi. Stunning view over the lake from most tents. The tents are very comfortable. When I was relaxing a bit on our terrace at a certain moment 23 monkeys were in the surrounding trees staring at me. That gave me the feeling of reverse "game driving": not tourist staring at animals, but animals staring... More

Stayed one night on our way to visit the Bushman. What a "WOW" atmosphere. The tents are top-notch and the surroundings are superb. We were well greeted by the staff and the owners of the lodge. Everything was well thought out and provided for. Our only regret is not being able to stay longer as one evening was just not... More

After a very bumpy and dusty ride, we arrived at the first tented lodge in our journey. We had just visited the Tortuga tribe on our way and watched them build arrowheads and knives for the Hadzabe bushmen that we were to hunt with the next day. What a unique experience for us. We found ourselves saying "each day is... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay, only wish it had been longer. Nani and Chris are delightful hosts. The setting is wonderful, the food fabulous, and the staff attentive and extremely pleasant. After bumping along on game drives, it was great to be able to walk around. The tents are most comfortable and you can amuse yourselves watching the... More

A wonderful location next to Lake Eyasi, good and spacious tents, good food in the covered outdoor restaurant, nice service, even at the managerial level. If you prefer, you can get a very early coffee or tea brought directly to your tent terrace. Free and quick laundry. You can climb to the lodge view tower to see the salty lake... More

We so enjoyed our stay here. It was so quiet and peaceful, admittedly we were very lucky as we were booked in for 2 nights and on the second day had the place to ourselves. It was wonderful wandering around, swimming in the pristine pool, enjoying walks to the lake and the fish pools. We sat by the lake and... More

This tented lodge is everything and more than you could hope for on the shores of Lake Eyassi. The setting - lush forest looking out over spectacular views of Lake Eyassi and the Ngorongoro Highlands. Small ponds dot the property and shade is always nearby thanks to the abundance of trees. We litterally felt the temperature drop dramatically when we... More

Location - Lake Eyasi, not known for its wildlife, but we were hear for the Hadzabe and Datoga tribes and it is very close to the them. The roads to get here are pretty bad, but it isn't too far off the main road to the Crater. Staff - amazing (as most camps in Northern Tanzania) Food - very, very... More
