GUIDE ON NGARO SERO LAKE NATRON CAMP IN TANZANIA
As you decide upon an affordable but unique lake accommodation for your travel in East Africa, you may consider Ngare Sero Lake Natron Camp. This eco-camp is designed to appear as part of the volcanic landscape around Lake Natron, and while the lodging may seem eco-friendly and basic with no permanent structures, you have a once-in-a-lifetime experience of slumbering in vast, pristine wilderness under expansive African skies. With very few guest tents to tend to, the staff provide you with personalized service in a friendly and professional manner. What is truly outstanding about this part of your safari in northern Tanzania, though, is the landscape. You listen to the soothing sound of a small stream outside your tent with the opportunity to even relax in one of the many small natural pools close to the camp site. The water follows a course to Lake Natron, a shallow water area that features a splendid array of colors in the water. Here, you may see many types of waterfowl, but more importantly flamingos as well as an occasional zebra, giraffe or wildebeest within the vicinity. Beyond the lake are many volcanic hills, waterfalls, hot springs and the most prominent natural feature – Ol Doinyo Lengai, an active volcano that challenges even the most physically fit as they trek to the top to absorb the astonishing views – note the last eruption was in 2008 – be warned. The Maasai people have made their homes for thousands of years in the area around Lake Natron (view map), and AfricanMecca holidaymakers will have the opportunity to visit the local village to learn about their culture.
Accommodation At Ngaro Sero Lake Natron Camp8 Bedouin tents have been specially designed for this striking location near Lake Natron. These Ngare Sero tents are valued in the African bush for their ability to not only stave off the elements, including high winds, but to also keep you cool in the heat of the day (read more on when is the best time to visit Natron lake). Being comfortable while on a scenic tour in Africa is of paramount importance, and your guest tent gives you a private place to rest, refresh and relax. Guest tents are furnished with full size beds, nightstands, lamps, small tables, chairs, as well as the good quality of linens and blankets. You have running water, as well as shower, toilet tent and basin. To minimize the impact on the environment, the camp is free of any permanent structures, such as wooden or concrete platforms, and your tent is camouflaged to blend perfectly into the surrounding landscape. The water is pumped from a natural spring and filtered for drinking, and electricity is provided by a neutral vegetable oil generator that is buried beneath the ground for noise reduction. AfricanMecca simply cannot imagine a more authentic way to spend your eco-holiday in Africa! The camp also has a central tent that houses the bar, dining area and lounge, as well as a tent for your escort guide (read more on where else to stay in Lake Natron). Best of all, you have stunning views of Lake Natron and the untainted African wilderness!
Safari At Ngaro Sero Lake Natron CampThe Great Rift Valley landscape around Lake Natron partially borders Kenya, and is situated further northeast of Ngorongoro Crater. From the camp, you see volcanic hills, deep craters and vast plains of tall grasses. Although the area tends to be primarily dry, there are many small streams, rivers, waterfalls, with Lake Natron being the most prominent water feature near the camp. The lake water is tinted with a number of colors due to microscopic organisms including algae, a primary food source for over a million lesser flamingos that breed at the lake. Whether you are interested in human history, Tanzanian cultures, trekking across the landscape or quietly exploring the tiny ecosystems near the lake, Ngare Sero Lake Natron Camp is the perfect place for your experiential trip to Lake Natron with AfricanMecca. Flamingo walks take you close to the shores of the lake where you watch these splendid creatures rummage for algae food and fill the sky and the lake waters with dots of pink presence. On the southern shores of the lake, you find human footprints that date back 120,000 years, the oldest ever discovered in the region. A small herd of camel is kept at the camp so that you may traverse the landscape atop one of these magnificent creatures. Half and full-day walks to the Engaresero Waterfalls gives you a refreshing break from the heat of the day, and the scenery is simply breathtaking. If you desire a bit more adventure for your Ngare Sero Lake Natron Camp tour, a hike up Ol Doinyo Lengai, an active volcano, may be the right activity for you, especially if you begin the journey at night to arrive at the crest at sunrise or on a full moon ascent. A Tanzania cultural tour of a Maasai boma west of the camp gives you personal insight into this proud tribe who continue to follow ancient customs. Traditional dances are also performed at the camp around a large bonfire.
Dining At Ngaro Sero Lake Natron CampBeing out in the African bush for your Lake Natron exploratory tour means that you need nutritious, palatable food to keep your energy high and your appetite satisfied. Ngare Sero Lake Natron Tented Camp provides you with locally-sourced, organic meals that represent African and international dishes. In the morning as you greet a new day, a delicious cup of Tanzanian coffee or tea begins to awaken you. In the mess tent, you may select from cereal, bread, boiled eggs, fresh fruit, jams, honey and much more. You may then explore the area's natural settings before returning to the camp for lunch, or you may choose to take a picnic lunch with you. Lunch options may include meats, breads, vegetables and similar light fare. The volcanic landscape around Lake Natron is especially beautiful at sunset and should not be missed during your African vista safari, which you may enjoy with your favorite cocktail from the bar. Dinner choices may include meat, fish, poultry, salads, soups, vegetable and many other options, and you may choose to sample local beers and South African wines to complement your meal -- a distinct treat for your dream escape to Tanzania with AfricanMecca. Upon request prior to arrival, the camp staff may be able to accommodate any special dietary needs, such as low carb, vegetarian, just to name a few of the most commonly requested diet needs.

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.
