Masek Under Canvas is a small mobile tented camp seasonally set up within in the concession area of Lake Masek Tented Lodge in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, nearby Ndutu. This is the sister camp of Ndutu Under Canvas which is also located in Ndutu but on the Serengeti Side.

The camp is operative from from December to March.

During these months the wildebeest migration should be grazing in the fertile short grass southern plains where it moves in a rather chaotic way following the rains and the regrowth of fresh pastures. Ndutu, which straddles the Serengeti / Ngorongoro C.A. border is a good base to explore the area.

The camp offers a upper-mid level of service and consists of 10 tents. Each tent has 2 twin beds that can be combined to become a double bed [triples can be arranged on request], en-suite bathroom with running water in basin, flush loo, while hot water for the shower is supplied morning and evening at the time agreed with the camp staff. Electricity is provided by solar panels and accumulated into batteries for night supply however there are no sockets in the rooms and mobiles and video devices need to be charged at the mess tent.

Electricity at the mess tent and in the lounge is provided by generator. The camp is complemented by the unfailing campfire.

Ndutu Under Canvas also accepts children under 6 years although we believe that lodges are more suitable for children.
Remember that no camp is fenced so children should be accompanied by an adult at all time.
