Maweninga Camp

Serengeti & the North

Rating: Mid-range    

Maweninga Camp overview

Maweninga is a tented camp in a wonderful location at the top of a huge kopje with commanding views over the Rift Valley, lakes Burungi and Manyara and Ngorongoro Highlands. The 16 tents provide comfortable accommodation with a bedroom, dressing area, en-suite bathroom with solar heated water and a veranda where you can sit and admire the views. The camp is hosted and staffed by Maasai and has a pleasantly laid back atmosphere.
Meals are served in the mess, a circular, open-sided structure with a thatched roof and wooden floor. There's a separate bar with indoor and outdoor seating areas, ideal for whiling away time between game drives and socialising with other guests. Evening drinks are served round the camp fire, the best vantage point for enjoying the sunset over the Rift Valley and, later, savouring a nightcap while star gazing.  
The camp is well positioned for game drives in Tarangire National Park. If you're heading out for a full day's safari the camp can provide a tasty packed lunch for you to enjoy en-route.  


Open: Maweninga Camp is open all year.

Location: Maweninga Camp is in the northwest of Tarangire National Park, on the top of a tall kopje (rocky granite outcrop), with views over the Rift Valley, Lake Burunge and Lake Manyara. Tents and buildings have been constructed to fit into the rocky terrain. The camp is about 9 miles from the main Tarangire gate at the northern tip of the park.

Rooms: There are 16 guest tents built along the edge of the kopje, with verandas making the most of the views. They are spacious with bedrooms, dressing areas and private shower rooms with hand basin, flush toilet and running water. The water is solar-heated. There is 24-hour solar-powered electricity.

Activities: From Maweninga you can take game drives in Tarangire National Park. The camp does not have resident guides or vehicles, so it’s best to visit with your own guide.

Facilities: There is a large thatched restaurant or mess, with open sides so you can enjoy views over the valley as you dine. Outside there’s a terrace and a firepit. Adjacent to this is the bar which has a cosy interior as well as sunny and shaded outdoor areas.

Dining: The food is good and meals are eaten at individual tables.

Children: Children of all ages are welcome. They should be kept under supervision at all times.

Health: This is a malarial area.

Communication: There is no internet access.

Ms. Nicola Jones

"Excellent food, comfortable tents, lovely staff and amazing sunset views over Lake Burungi."

Miss. Amy Harley
"Lovely location and met some great people here- Amazing cocktails and that view!!"
Mr. Peter Orpin (20/11/2019)
"This is a great camp with superb views over the park. Staff were good fun, helpful and professional. Lodges were well designed and beds comfortable. Food was good and loved the views at night. The location of the camp within the park optimises game viewing time too. "
Mr. John Plumb (08/09/2019)
"Very innovative and attractive location of the tents built on rocky outcrops overlooking a large valley. All mod cons in the tents except no 240v power for charging phones/cameras or using hair appliances. Available, in the bar area, but not very convenient. Beware tsetse flies in the last few miles of the approach to the camp - a nuisance rather than a big problem. But none in the camp itself."
Janie Highland
"Nice tents and good food. Lovely experience to see the sunset seated on cushions on a huge boulder."
