Lake Eyasi is isolated and little visited, yet it is only about a 2 hour detour from the route between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater. Kisima Ngeda Tented Camp is the very best place to stay here.
Set within a beautiful natural palm and acacia forest with a colossal rock as a backdrop, Kisima Ngeda is an intimate tented lodge on the shores of Lake Eyasi, with sweeping views towards the Rift. Across this huge, seasonal soda lake that stretches away in front of camp, the Alipi escarpment wall rises 2000ft up into the Endulen area of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area providing a stunning view.
There are just comfortable seven en-suite tents at Kisima Ngeda, each built under a wood and thatch structure. The excellent service at Kisima Ngeda Camp and its simple rustic style makes this camp very appealing. There is an open dining room and bar, and a platform hidden in the reeds near the spring which is ideal for a romantic dinner under the stars or for birdwatching.
From the tents there are superb views of the lake and its birdlife, including flamingos and Egyptian geese. A spring provides water for a beautiful swimming oasis where there are two huts equipped with beach-beds and lounging chairs, ideal for sunbathing
The camp offers an exclusive destination plus amazing scenery and a chance to visit the Hadzabe, one of the last click-speaking hunter-gatherer tribes. You can also visit the Datoga blacksmith or the Datoga cultural boma before returning to the camp in time for sunset and sundowners overlooking the lake. You might even spot the two hippos that still live in the vicinity. You can also make use of the mountain bikes provided by the camp or go walking and bird watching on the premises. There are several trails across the palm and acacia forest and a whole lakeshore to explore at will and without the need of a guide. If you wish you can venture into the villages nearby.
