Kisima Ngeda Tented Camp is situated on the shores of Lake Eyasi at an altitude of 1040m. The camp is part of a 200 acre family-owned farm with a natural spring nearby that produces over four million litres of water a day and flows into the lake.
For guests who are wanting to visit the Datoga or Hadzabe bushmen, one of the last click-speaking hunter gatherer tribes in this area, we recommend staying at this beautiful little camp. It is about 2 hour drive from the Ngorongoro Crater and the road can be bumpy…but worth it!
The camp consists of 7 guest tents built on permanent platforms and a large dining tent. All the tents and their en-suite bathrooms are thatched with traditional palm fronds and stems, giving the overall camp a rustic appearance. The water at the camp is supplied by the natural spring and heated by locally-made boilers.
Kisima Ngeda Tented Camp has a beautiful swimming oasis with its water fed by the natural spring. There are also two huts equipped with beach beds and lounge chairs for ultimate relaxation after a day of game viewing, birdwatching or sightseeing.
“We spent one night here as part of our 10 day safari. The tents are clean and comfortable with hot water and electricity and the grounds are quiet and peaceful with fish ponds and a nice pool to cool off after a dusty game drive. In June it is dry season and the lake shore has receded far out about 2 km. I'm told that in the wet season the lakeshore comes right up to the edge of the property. Also in June there are very few insects because of the strong breeze blowing through.The staff are unseen until you need something and then they magically appear and are extremely attentive to your needs. The food is very good and well presented. A short 10 minute hike leads you to a cliff overlooking the camp and a magnificent view of the sunset over Lake Eyasi. We chose this camp mainly for the visits to the Datoga and Hadzabe tribes. An experience not to be missed. I would highly recommend a stay here.”
