I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful camp. My room was beautifully appointed with hardwood floors, veranda, complete bathroom, and very comfortable beds. The location next to the lake is delightful. The food prepared by their wonderful chef, Veronica, is beautifully presented and delicious. The evening campfire with snacks and drinks under the stars was delightful after a...

Amazing surroundings and extremely friendly and qualified staff. The staff gave us a very warm welcome and showed genuine interest in their customers. It was a pity that we only stayed here for one night - it was the best accommodation during our trip through Tanzania.

Lake Masek was without doubt the best place we stayed in Tanzania and our honeymoon. It's in the middle of nowhere, with beautiful views and over the top tents. Complete luxury experience and truly authentic and nice service. The food is also great. You can hear animals outside during the night, it's immerse in the wild but we were never...

from a first glance it looks like a tent-camp in the middle of nowhere. But as you enter - wow! magic! What looks like plain (though very large) tents reveal to be pampering suits. Beautifuly furnished, clean, well devided. With a tub inside and a really cool outdoor shower (as long as it is not windy, or it might be...

The thing that is most special about this lodge is that it seems to be in the middle of nowhere. It is unclear how our guide knew how to get here because there are no roads or distinct trails in the area. We stayed here only one night. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. The tents are large and...

Best place we stayed on our Honeymoon! If you are considering staying and Lake Masek then stop considering and book! First off the rooms were spectacular all overlooking the lake. The raised platforms made us feel safer from the animals, at all times we felt 100% safe. The rooms were large with double vanities, huge bathtub, modern toilet, and outdoor...

We really enjoyed our stay here, the rooms were very spacious and tastefully decorated. The beds mega comfortable and the shower pressure and copious hot water was a welcome reprieve from our long day drive from Grumeti. Tall and ominous looking Masai clad with spears and full beadwork regalia were our welcoming committee and escorts to our tents as Masek...

Lake Masek Tented Camp is located in the heart of Ndutu wilderness with lots of wildlife around, especially in February when countless migrating wildebeests roam around Ndutu and have their calves. The camp has a small number of spacious, raised, luxury tents with the 24-hr electricity and hot water, mosquito netted comfortable beds, two bathroom sinks, a soaking tab and,...
