“Mawa Ninga Camp - remote and beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2009

Mawa Ninga is part of MKSC group which is French owned and also operates other camps such as Olaado, Ronjo and Olduvai.

Mawa Ninga is located on top of Tarangiri Hill and has a gorgeous panoramic view over Lake Manyara and Lake Burundi.
There are 8 fixed tent like cabins with shower (tank) and real toilet which are nicely appointed and all have a balcony , some with a nice view. In front of the restaurant is a fire pit with lounge chairs which is great for drinks at sundown. The staff is friendly and service can be expedited a bit through tipping. A lone Masai assists with various tasks while dressed in traditional clothing which must include a special pocket for his cellphone. Food is average but good which can be expected for such a remote location. Bring bug spray and watch the Tse Tse flies. Good location to see elephants. Good place for romance!

The Mawe Ninga camp is in a great position in the heart of the Tarangire National Park, which means that you can enjoy a great game drive on the way to the camp. The accommodation is simple, although having a proper shower and toilet felt like luxury, considering the remote location. Our Tent also had a little balcony so you could enjoy the sunset and the beautiful scenary. The restaurant is situated in an elevated position from where you can enjoy the view, after dinner you can sit around the fire and chat or simply enjoy the sounds of Africa. The staff was nice, possibly a bit shy. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this camp. Also, a lot of people we met on safari did not have Tarangire on their itinerary but it was an amazing part of our holiday and personally i'd recommend not to miss it while in Tanzania.

  • Liked — Felt authentic
  • Disliked — Can not charge camera in room so if you forget to charge at dinner time, forget it!
