Lake Masek Tented Camp is a relatively high standard permanent tented camp located in front of Lake Masek, the smaller of the two lakes in the area of Ndutu.

The camp consists of 20 tents raised on wooden decks. Each tent has a double bed or two twin beds [a third bed can be arranged on request], en-suite bathroom with flush loo, running water in basin, bathtub and "al fresco" shower. Hot water is solar heated and electricity is available 24 Hr.

The camp is complemented by the main central thatch building hosting the lounge, the restaurant, a wide wooden deck overlooking Lake Masek and a gift shop selling masai beadworks.

This area, straddling Serengeti and Ngorongoro, becomes very relevant from December to April when it can be used as a base to reach many of the areas where the migration could potentially be lingering or passing through ... when not in Ndutu itself.

Outside of that period all mobile tented camps are pulled out along with the wildebeest migration and Lake Masek Tented Camp together with Ndutu Safari Lodge remain alone to enjoy virtually private game driving. Migration apart, resident game supported by the two lakes of Ndutu includes elephants, ostriches, giraffes, impala, gazelles, 2 lions prides [the Masek pride and the Ndutu pride], cheetahs, spotted hyenas, hippos, crocodiles, jackals and a variety of birds. A very lucky traveller could also sight wild dogs, caracals and striped hyena. Hence From June to November, when the tourist inflow is directed towards other areas of the Serengeti, Ndutu might become an attractive alternative.
