GUIDE ON MOIVARO LAKE NATRON CAMP IN TANZANIA
A joint venture between the Maasai community and Dutch investors, Moivaro Lake Natron Tented Camp is an affordable accommodation that provides you with a tranquil setting amidst a dramatic landscape of Lake Natron, vast plains, waterfalls, hot springs, rivers and volcanoes, the most dominant being Ol Doinyo Lengai, or "Mountain of God" – an active volcano that last erupted in 2008. You enjoy the peace and privacy of your adequate and simple guest tent nestled within lush gardens with the fluttering wings of avi-fauna just overhead. Expect a total non-frill accommodation experience here with minimum facilities. With a small number of guest tents, the warm friendly staff try their best to make you feel at home with some shortcomings of lacking personalized services, an intangible asset to any African hospitality safari experience, yet you are always able to find a place to enjoy the solitude of the wilderness. The camp admits families with young children and offers a natural swimming pool though check with the manager when the last time it was cleaned before taking a dip.
Whether you seek knowledge about the ecosystem, dream of climbing an active volcano at your own risk or want to experience the Maasai life, Moivaro Lake Natron Camp has an activity for you! Walking safaris with experienced guides increase your knowledge about the flora and fauna, tracking techniques, medicinal uses of plants, and a trek close to the foothills of Ol Doinyo Lengai during your adventure tour of Africa is something that will stay with you for a lifetime. The proximity of the camp to a Maasai village exposes you to one of Tanzania's most fascinating cultures, and AfricanMecca guests need only take a few strides beyond the camp property to find the women of the village offering their handcrafted intricate jewelry for barter or for sale, or you may learn the technique of Maasai fire making from its cultural cookery 101 class. Cultural tours of the village give you insight into the ancient rituals, beliefs and customs of the Maasai.
Accommodation At Moivaro Lake Natron Tented CampMoivaro Lake Natron Tented Camp offers 9 modest guest tents that provide you with the basic rooming necessities for your adventure trip to Lake Natron. The camp also offers 4 "Maasai bandas" -- mobile tents with running water, flush toilet, outdoor shower and electricity. The warm tones and natural materials of the decor complement the natural beauty of Lake Natron, and the gardens around your tent are filled with several species of birds, and your shaded verandah is a relaxing place to observe these lovely creatures. You awaken to the warmth of the rising sun in a large, comfortable bed that is canopied with mosquito netting. The full bathroom includes a shower, flush toilet and sink, and soap and towels are included for your convenience, and six of the guest tents have bathtubs. Guest tents do not have electrical outlets, so you should plan accordingly as you decide what items to bring with you for your Tanzanian travel in Africa. Charging stations are available in the restaurant, though. Additionally, the camp property is not lit at night, so a flashlight is recommended. Other in-tent amenities include electric lighting, bottled water, mosquito coils, candles and matches. For your meals and socializing with other AfricanMecca guests, Moivaro Lake Natron Tented Camp has a restaurant, bar and outdoor lounge with fireplace. Other amenities that are available during your Lake Natron tour are internet service and laundry service (read more on where else to stay in Lake Natron on your East African safari).
Safari At Moivaro Lake Natron Tented CampYour vacation in wild and off-beat Tanzania gives you access to pristine wilderness like no other in the world, and Moivaro Lake Natron Tented Camp is a discerning and rudimentary base for exploring the lake, the highlands and meeting the members of the local Maasai village. A walking safari takes you back in time to discover the landscape as early adventurers do, or to walk in the footsteps of the Maasai people. These walking treks can be arranged for many of the area's landmarks, such as Lake Natron, hot springs, waterfalls, Engare Sero River springs, to name a few of the prime attractions. The sodiforous character of the lake creates an incredible array of colors in the water, and the lake serves as a primary breeding ground for over one million lesser flamingos during the peak of the season (read more on when is the best time to visit Lake Natron for an off-beat African safari). On occasion, giraffe and zebra may be viewed close to the lake. The hot springs offer a tranquil setting for sunset cocktails and bush dining, and the waterfalls are not only beautiful, but also offer a refreshing oasis for an afternoon swim in its natural plunge pool.
If you prefer a longer walk along the escarpment, the springs at Engare Sero River is about a half-day from the camp. As you plan to partake of these activities during your Tanzania walking safari with AfricanMecca, bring appropriate shoes, such as hiking boots, as many of the routes are rocky and demanding to navigate in casual shoes. Ol Doinyo Lengai is an active one-third million year old volcano that entices many climbers, and a midnight trek up the great mountain takes you to the apex at sunrise. You may not be able to imagine a more awe-inspiring experience for your Lake Natron off-beat tour! A Hollywood movie scene from “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life” showed Angelina Jolie coming off the crater floor vent of the “Mountain of God." A chopper was used to film the mountain. Finally, you may also choose to visit the Maasai village during your stay. The villagers share their customs and homes, and you may participate in Maasai chores, medicinal insights and traditional dances.
Dining At Moivaro Lake Natron Tented CampRoom rates at Moivaro Lake Natron Tented Camp include meals, and AfricanMecca boarders may enjoy them while overlooking the exquisite setting of the Natron ecosystem or have a private mealtime on your verandah on request. The food is satisfactory for a value accommodation and provides adequate nourishment for your tour activities in this part of northern Tanzania. The menu changes daily based upon the available local vegetable produce, meats and dairy. The staff prepares three meals each day in the camp's two kitchens, and the selections include local and intercontinental dishes. For breakfast, the camp may offer cereal, eggs, fresh fruit, toast, jams, honey and much more. Lunch is typically platters of meats, vegetables, fruits and other items, and complementary coffee and tea are served in the late afternoon. After spending the day visiting the local village and exploring Lake Natron, order your favorite cocktail from the bar and find a quiet place to watch the sunset, a wonderful and memorable scenic experience for your dream holiday in Africa. A four-course menu is prepared for your dinner and may include meat, fish or poultry served with vegetables, salads, soups and other vegetarian options ending with dessert. The camp also offers bush dinner and picnic lunches. Beverages are additional, and the cost may be considered high though you need to consider the logistical remoteness of the camp. The bar features a selection of local and international beer, wine, spirits, as well as soft drinks and bottled water.

AfricanMecca's professionalism and care understands that what distinguishes Africa is its authenticity, the land, people and wildlife who do not share our world of fashion and fanfare that distinguish so many travel companies today.
