“Experience of a lifetime!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

This place is well worth the drive. We spent two nights here and it was an amazing experience. The tents are awesome. The food is wonderful and the staff is out of this world. The water in the showers was either boiling hot or freezing cold, but who cares, everything else was so amazing I barely noticed. We had zebra walking around our tent all night and in the morning. I was so excited, I could barely sleep. I highly recommend spending at least a couple of nights here. Two different Safari spots were within a reasonable area. I regret not going on the tour to see the bushmen, but I didn't know about it until we were leaving. Love, love, love this place.

What a jewel in the crown of Zara tours not that it has much to beat.

The tents are well situated and appointed, even down to the Ikea furniture.

The food was excellent and well presented.

The staff couldn't do enough to help you they were excellent.

It was amazing.

Room Tip: room 19 and 20 unobstructed view of the valley

This tented camp, at 1960 meters above sealevel, has a fantastic view of Lake Eyasi.
The tents are large and comfortable with a large brickwalled bathroom each.
There is a rich birdlife and occasional visits by zebras and other animals on the compound that is not fenced. When moving from your tent to the restaurant or back again in the dark hours you will be escorted by masai warriors that will protect you from any predators lurking in the dark.
We had some amazing sunsets and a clear view of the lake below.

The name says it all... after nearly an hour off the "main" road you come to camp which has a great view, wonderful hospitality and Maasai Warriors who escort you to your tent as protectors from the wild. Seems a little surreal until you see the animals which makes it understandable that the Maasai carry a bow with a couple of arrows.
Great experience... took my 14yo daughter - she'll remember it forever!

My husband and I stayed here one night in January 2013, and my only complaint is that we only got to stay one night! The tents are very spacious, and after climbing Kili and sleeping in a tent on the ground for a week, this seemed like pure luxury. Beds were comfortable, the bathroom was large, the front porch was spacious, and the views are gorgeous. And like the previous rater said, what a neat experience to have Massai men armed with bows and arrows walking you to and from dinner. They said often around 9pm the animals start getting closer to the camp. It was nearing dark when we got there, and had to leave the next morning, so we didn't have a lot of time to just sit out and enjoy the views.

Maasai men armed with spears and bows and arrows escort you to and from dinner to protect you from wildlife nearby. You wake up at midnight to the low grumble of a lion fifty yards from your room. You sit on wide, spacious decks and gaze for hours at Lake Eyasi below. The place has been open for only a year and it's still a but rough around the edges--no screens in the dining room, mismatched tiles in the ENORMOUS bathrooms--but it's a glorious, end-of-the-road place to stay. The food--a fixed menu--is terrific, the rooms are huge, the beds are dreamy. It's not for everyone, but if adventure brings you to Tanzania, then you should feel right at home at this property.

Room Tip: The rooms are all pretty much the same--heavy canvas tents pitched on wooden platforms elevated high...
