Outstanding tented camp on the Maasai steppe: By far the most beautiful tented accommodations we stayed in during our 12 day Northern Tanzanian safari! The wood work, the luxurious bedding, and the attention to detail made [...]
it hard to believe that you were in a tent! The owners, Chris and Ingrid, have worked hard to create a gorgeous, natural camp, incorporating local materials and building techniques. The experience with the Maasai from the nearby boma is the most authentic you are likely to find in Tanzania. Superb food, great entertainment, and all the comforts of home made this one of the most enjoyable camping experiences I've ever had. My three children, ages 9, 12, and 13 didn't want to leave! 

Meals are taken in the common dining room so you can meet the other guests but there are only 4 tents of guests at any one time, so you will not have to contend with crowds. Breakfasts tended to be taken alone since every group went out at different times, depending on their plan for the day. Delicious food - local and international cuisine.

Lovely outdoor shower, or shower in your tent. Rest and enjoy a drink on your private patio, or join the others round the campfire. 
Definitely do NOT miss this experience if you like camping but also being pampered.billaholic - Tripadvisor


We wanted to do something different and put tent design, engineering and carpentry to the test with a magical result. The tents are thoughtfully located with plenty of bush and natural fencing to give you the seclusion and privacy you need.


The camp is close to three prime wildlife areas, so suitable for daytrips. If you would like to dive a little deeper into the lifestyle of the Maasai, we are offering you real life experiences (not staged).


An intimate private camp in a beautyful bush location. A little piece of Africa as you had always imagined and dreamed it to be. We offer a grass root cultural experience and a true look behind the scenes into Maasai culture.


We attempt to make as low an impact on the environment as possible. For example we use solarenergy. We respect the local community and work closely with them.
