Stayed here 1 night on our way from Lake Manyara to Ngorongoro. Situated right at the banks of Lake Eyasi, unfortunately in this time of year there is no water in the lake. (maybe better considering mosquitos?) Don't expect too much excitement here, just come over to chill & relax. A nice break from seeing wildlife (plenty of birds and... More

We loved our stay at Kisima Ngeda. The surroundings were beautiful and serene. Our tent was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Of the various mid-luxury range accommodations we experienced during our 8-day safari, this was the only place that had shampoo and shower gel in refillable glass bottles (instead of disposable plastic). The food was delicious and plentiful. What really... More

All comments here are great already I just wanted to ad to this. This is one of the most memorable place we stayed at during our 13 day safari trip. The peace, the sunset, the luxurious tents and the friendliness of the staff are outstadning. Chris the owner came out to say hi during dinner and you can tell he... More

It's difficult to translate the quiet beauty of Kisima Ngeda. The light, the wild calls of birds, monkeys and lizards. Local kids playing in nearby, the shussing of wind in the palms. Our family will never forget our morning hunt with the Hadzabe, watching the sunset from the rocky cliff above the camp, the slow afternoons watching the cows and... More

Getting there was like passing through wasteland then suddenly you're there and being taken to your tent along the shores of the lake but when we were there the lake was a faint shimmer in the distance. We tried to walk to it but it became more and more muddy. The staff were indeed young but very eager to please.... More

This was our last camp (more like luxury tented chalets) after a week of safari with Bush2Beach. We only stayed 1 night but 2 is definitely recommended as you get up early to go and see the Hadzabe tribe then the Datoga tribe, very interesting. It would have been lovely to have had another day to relax after our adventurous... More

Choose this location for visiting the bushmen tribe and for bird watching rather than for safari game viewing since is out of the way and not near the parks. Is located on Lake Eyasi, however in the dry season the lake almost disappears and you can walk out on the lake floor for miles (along with Maasai cattle). Tents were... More

Our first tented experience in Tanzania was one to remember. Great location right on the lake. Gorgeous comfortable tent with all amenities. Excellent food. The owners went out of their way to help us get to know the region and suggest activities. Perfect! We loved the sunset from the treehouse.

The road to get here will make you question your choice but trust me this place is great. Only stayed one night so hate we didn't have more time to enjoy the place. The staff was super accommodating. They were all young and eager to work hard for you. There is a great sunset viewing tower and evening fire pit.... More
