We stayed at Tindiga Tented Camp for 2 nights while we were in the area visiting the Habzebe and Datoga tribes. The location was very remote but it was nice to enjoy some real peace and quiet (which may be too quite it you like busy surroundings!). They did a great job given how remote it is, and there is no electricity in the tents or the main area! The tents were spacious and comfortable with the nice place to lay out the front of the tent to read a book. They could look to sew up some of the holes on their mosquito nets though! Also it would have been nice if the back bathroom area was also covered by the mosquito net/tent area as well. The beds was comfortable and the place was clean given it was a tent and there was hot water showers! At night they would put lanterns in the tents for light.
When we arrived we were greeted with juice and a towel. In general the staff were amazingly attentive (maybe as we were the only guests on one night!) and the food was the best we had the entire trip (better than food at the serena and sopa lodges) though they were set menus. Food quantity was generous and all the courses were delicious including the coffee. The pool wasn't filled when we went in late March which may have been nice to have a dip. You get used to not having electricity - remember you're in the middle of nowhere in Africa so don't expect too much and enjoy the nature surroundings! We actually enjoyed the lantern lit pathways at night as it created such a nice ambiance with nature around! Bring mosquito repellent! Would definitely recommend a stay here for something different to regular lodge/hotel stays!
