Kisima Ngeda Tented Camp is situated on the shores of Lake Eyasi, boasting sweeping views of the Rift Valley. Across this seasonal soda lake, the Alipi escarpment wall rises 2,000 feet up into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area providing a stunning backdrop. The camp is beautifully set in a Llala palm and acacia forest and is part of 200-acre family-owned farm with a natural spring nearby that feeds into the lake. It is also home to the Wahadzabe, an ancient, nomadic tribe of Bushmen who are one of the last click-speaking hunter-gatherer tribes.
Kisima Ngeda is located on the north-eastern shores of Lake Eyasi at an altitude of roughly 3,400 feet. Lake Eyasi, a seasonal, alkaline lake, drains the Ngorongoro volcano’s southwestern flank and stretches 45 miles south and covers an area of almost 400 sq. miles. The terrain around the lake, as with much of the Rift Valley, was formed by violent, volcanic activity, and the high walls of the Rift escarpments rise over 2000 feet above the lake. Kisima Ngeda is about 4 1/2 hours driving time from Arusha, a 2 hours drive away from the Ngorongoro Crater and about a half day’s drive to the Serengeti.
Sitting is a small forest of Acacias on the edge of the string; the Kisima Ngeda Camp is designed to blend in with the natural environment. Each tent is constructed almost entirely of palm trees from the family owned property. Each of the seven are built on a permanent, raised wooden platform with a palm-thatched roof, a hand carved bed, and an enclosed bathroom with shower. The tents have been created to be low impact, spacious, and totally comfortable. Each of the tents boasts a stunning view of the lake and surrounding area. Kisima Ngeda Camp has become a part of the beautiful scenery, and a hidden jewel built inside a far-off oasis.
Not only do guest of the Kisima Ngeda receive incredible views, comfortable and spacious accommodations, and amazing sunsets, but they also get delicious, freshly cooked meals daily. Where and when possible the culinary staff uses locally grown products including fruits, vegetables, and fresh dairy products from the camps own cows. Each meal is served with safe bottled water and is served in the privacy of your own tented accommodation or in the dining room, which provides stunning visuals of the lake.
