Lake Natron Camp

Lake Natron Camp

The Lake Natron Camp is run by the Ngare Sero Lodge and positioned at the edge of the Lake Flats on the southern end of Lake Natron on old volcanic flows. The Lake Flats contain small streams, lakes and hills that provide a variety of hospitable environments for birds and mammals that thrive in the alkali oasis.

Superb panoramic views of the Rift Valley can be seen in all directions. Allow us to arrange spectacular morning, evening, and night walks about the spacious flats that surround the lake.

For the more adventurous guests we can arrange a night camping out under the stars on the dry expanse.

One of the 6 tents for our guests at the Lake Natron CampThe Oasis

Cool fresh water flows out of the ground and meanders to the lake.

This stream is laden with small tilapia providing food for many water birds. Our safari camels drink here.

The well hidden tents are placed parallel to this stream and about thirty meters away.

With only six rooms, our Natron Camp provides a high level of comfort and service and maintains intimate contact with the Bush and the sounds of the African night.

Each tent is furnished with full size beds, quality linen and blankets, bedside table, electric reading lamps, rugs, tables and chairs and has its own shower and toilet tent.

A steward attends to each Living tent and will make beds and do laundry daily.

Meals are served in the Dining Tent at tables with real crockery. Drinks are available from a well stocked bar.

The Bedu Tent is the main living-area of the Lake Natrom Camp

 

The Bedu Tent

This Main Living-Area dwelling is designed to continue the unique style and practical comfort of your Ngare Sero Lodge experience. The tent is a proprietery custom design, made to camouflage the entire camp, while providing a cool, comfortable, and pest free environment. These traditional luxury tents with both shower and toilet tents all inside the Bedu Shade Tent, provide an open yet private setting that is cool and comfortable. You'll feel right at home.

 

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are served at the Boma Tent

 

The Boma

Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner are served here. This is the common tent and a good place to relax with a drink from the bar.

 

 

The beautifully refreshing pool at the Bedu Camp

 

 

Natural Pool

In the mid-day heat, we recommend you relax in the crystal clear stream just by the tent, or enjoy a siesta in your cool tent until mid-afternoon. To provide absolute peace and tranquility, the access to the natural pool and Lake Flats is behind your camp.

 

 

The Masai Community

The local Masai Community utilises the area in a traditional way and protects the environment and wildlife.

Engare Sero Village has granted a concession allowing us to use the area for photographic and naturalist safaris. Income from these activities supports local community projects as well as secondary school education.

Lake Natron


Every night thousands of flamingos fly over the camp to feed and breed at Lake Natron At the lowest point of the Rift valley in East Africa sits this shallow soda lake. Volcanic activity releases Sodium Carbonate (Soda) which is washed down to this lake where evaporation causes high concentrations.

This environment supports algae and zooplankton upon which the flamingos filter feed. The lake is highly alkali and thus is an ideal location for flamingos to feed and to breed while enjoying relative security from predators. Every evening thousands of pink flamingos fly overhead, exposing the deep garnet feathers under their wings.

Surrounding the waters edge is a huge expanse of lake flats ideal for walks.

 

The only active Lengai Volcano in Tanzania

 

Oldoinyo Lengai Volcano

Set against the Rift Wall is the only active volcano in Tanzania, the Oldoinyo Lengai Volcano. An overnight ascent lit only by moonlight is an unforgettable and mystical experience. Let us arrange climbs guided by experienced local Masai. You will be driven from the camp to the base for the midnight ascent and collected the next morning to return to the camp.

 

 

The beautiful Engare Sero River Gorge offers great walks

 

Engare Sero River Gorge

This spectacular gorge cut into the Rift Plateau meanders to exit at the Rift Wall. The river continues through volcanic sand entering Lake Natron under ground. Let us arrange half or full day walks up this gorge where you may enjoy numerous cold waterfall showers. The scenery is a unique blend of desert rock and lush tropical palms.
