Kisima Ngeda Tented Camp in Ngorongoro is an oasis in Tanzania.
This tented camp is wonderful, the staff is great, the food is fantastic and nothing is too much trouble.
More than any other place we stayed during our time in Tanzania, Kisima Ngeda exceeded expectations.
We would go back in a heartbeat -- and intend to! The setting is absolutely beautiful and lush. The tent cabins are maintained in excellent condition.
The staff are top-notch and the owners are some of the friendliest, most well-informed you would want to meet.
We loved drinking tea or coffee served to the raised porch in front of our tent cabin, allowing us a very leisurely bit of early morning birding (great birding at Kisima Ngeda) and monkey-watching to start the day.
We loved the exceptional food in a very fitting indoor-outdoor setting.
And the views of the sunsets over Lake Eyasi from the top of the rock lookout? That's a memory I will always have.
A fire at night, the tree house and walks along the lake were totally peaceful. We climbed the hill behind the camp and were escorted by two staff who insisted on carrying the cool box with glasses and our wine for Sundowners.
The view is stunning and very romantic.
A family of inquisitive mice visited while we were up there and just went about there business and left you alone while foraging.
We managed a visit to the Hadzabe bushmen tribe which is highly recommended.
Be prepared to really walk as these fellows move through the bush at such speed and with little apparent effort that after three hours we were ready to call it quits.
Fantastic experience. All the tribal cultural visits were wonderful and showed another side to Tanzania after touring the Serengeti.
Nani and Chris are really interesting people and genuine hosts who are really happy to share their piece of paradise with you
