GUIDE ON LAKE EYASI TENTED CAMP IN TANZANIA
This newly anticipated camp in Lake Eyasi has postponed its development until further notice.
To be situated near Lake Eyasi, the Lake Eyasi Tented Camp will offer a down-to-earth Tanganyika Wilderness accommodation option for your cultural safari in northern Tanzania. Because the lake is alkaline, you may not see the abundance of wildlife that is found in other fresh water lake locations, but the camp’s focus is to spring your prospect to experience a natural setting that is both beautiful and remote, and more importantly, have the opportunity to experience the culture of the Hadza and Datoga tribes. Lake Eyasi itself is home to many bird species, such as flamingo, stork, pelican, to name a few, and hippo, monkey, varied antelopes and other mammals are also found near the lake. In addition to exploring the lake and surrounding landscape, you can also choose to enlighten yourself on the cultural and tribal communities around during your ethnic safari visit in this part of Tanzania with AfricanMecca. Generations of Hadzabe and Datoga have passed down beliefs and traditions that are still followed by the villagers, and culture tours to its communities are insightful, fascinating and even moving as you are able to join the villagers in their daily tasks. The camp will operate year-round, but the time of year that you visit greatly influences the character of your activities, as well as your personal comfort. From January through early March, the climate is hot and humid. This period is followed by the long rains of mid-March to the end of May, after which the dry season runs from June to October. Shorter rains arrive in November and December.
Accommodation At Lake Eyasi Tented CampLake Eyasi Tented Camp will comprise of 10 large tents for your Tanzania dream vacation with AfricanMecca where you will find yourself completely absorbed by your surroundings. The remote setting, though, does not mean that you have to live without comfort or modern conveniences during your authentic culture holidays in East Africa. As you plan your travel once the camp is built, you may select your bed preference -- two guest tents will have king size beds and the remaining eight tents will have twin beds. Each tent will have a full bathroom with shower, sink and flush toilet, and the furnishings in your tent meet your basic requirements for organizing your belongings. When you stay at Lake Eyasi Tented Camp, you will be fully unplug from your hectic everyday world and relish every breathtaking moment of being in the African bush. The camp has no plans to offer internet service. Families who are traveling in Africa with children will be welcome to stay at the camp, and special arrangements can be made for honeymooners on a budget who want a culturally romantic and an off-beat adventurous location to celebrate their union. The camp will have a central tented dining area and outdoor seating area around a campfire where you will be able to interact with other guests, but the accommodation also will have several nature zones where you can enjoy solitude amidst the raw wilderness.
Safari At Lake Eyasi Tented CampThe predominant tribes near Lake Eyasi are the Hadzabe and Datoga, and the Lake Eyasi Tented Camp cultural tours will give you the experience of meeting and interacting with these native people. You will visit villages, schools and other community programs, as well as learn ancient traditions of art and craftsmanship, customs, family structures, beliefs and practices. As some of the last hunter-gatherers in Africa, the Hadza Bushmen (aka as Watindiga or Hadzabe) continue to use bow and arrows for hunting. You may have the opportunity to join a hunt or help the village gather roots, tubers and wild fruits as part of your culture trip to Lake Eyasi (read more on when is the best time to visit Eyasi lake on an East Africa safari). You may also meet the farmers and craftsmen of the Datoga tribe, visit their traditional mud homes and admire their finely crafted jewelry and weapons. With Lake Eyasi at your doorstep, walking safaris are an integral part of your African nature tour. Your experienced guide will take you along paths through the bush that are used by wildlife and local villages to gather food and water, as well as for hunting. Along the way, you will learn about the flora and fauna, tracking techniques, bush survival, and you may even see hippo, monkey and other fauna and flora that are found in the Lake Eyasi ecology. With an abundance of birds at the lake, your AfricanMecca guide will also show you to locate and identify many species of avi-fauna.
Dining At Lake Eyasi Tented CampMeals will be fully included in your room costs at Lake Eyasi Camp, and the food will be adequately palatable based on moderate international standards. All meals will be served in the dining tent, and you may request a picnic lunch during your wilderness full day tour of Lake Eyasi. Ingredients will be sourced from local communities so you can enjoy dishes made only with the freshest, organic produce and meats available. Breakfast choices will include "full English" and international options, such as cereal, fresh fruit, toast, jam, honey, waffles, eggs and much more. After your morning meal, you will be able to begin your Lake Eyasi Tented Camp tour before returning to camp for a lunch of meat, vegetables, salads and other dishes. You may then choose to find a quiet place to relax and nap or partake of a second activity before the sun begins to sink into the horizon. Even with the entire pristine wilderness to explore, one of the most memorable parts of your dream vacation to Africa will be the sunsets. You will watch as the golden light of the sun paints the landscape, all while sipping one of your favorite cocktails. An array of local and international dishes will be prepared for your dinner, such as fish, poultry, meat, vegetables, salads, soups, freshly baked breads and much more! You will be able to even request varied vegetarian or other specific dietary dishes via AfricanMecca but prior to arrival to ensure appropriate ingredients are sourced during your stay (read more on where else to stay in Lake Eyasi on your Tanzanian safari)
