I had mixed feelings about this place, partly because of the somewhat unhelpful attitude of their reservations department and partly because of some bad reviews here. There are a number of Lake Natron camps and I wonder if the bad reviews are for another camp with a similar name.
I like this place a lot. It's a bit rustic but that is to be expected in such a remote area. The staff were lovely and the food was good. Four course dinner, I only managed 3 and had to miss dessert! I asked for Stoney Tangawesi and they didn't have any and later in the afternoon, they told me they had gone out and got some for me.
I loved the pool.
The area is amazing! Well worth a visit. The only thing that spoiled it were some Chinese tourists who came by helicopter and drove the flamingos away just as we got to them. I hope the camp and the area will think about whether they allow this form of transport into the area as it surely cannot be environmentally friendly.
- 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
