Lake Natron Tented Camp is located nearby Ngaresero Village, in Natron.

The camp is situated in a beautiful plot shaded by the foliage of many trees in pleasant contrast with the surrounding arid, harsh landscape dominated by the active volcano Ol Doinyo Lengai responsible for the extreme salinity of Lake Natron, one of the most important breeding places on the planet for lesser flamingos.

The camp consist of nine tents raised on cement platforms and three maasai bandas made of mud in accordance with the masai tradition. They both feature bathroom and hot water shower.

The camp is complemented by the restaurant with bar, the camp-fire and the little swimming-pool fed with water of Ngaresero stream.

Lake Natron Tented Camp offers a medium-low level of servicing. Tents and bands are very rustic and the first impression might easily be negative however the Maasai staff who runs the camp slowly manages to conquer his guests who eventually leave serene and glad of the experience.
