There are destinations that capture the heart with their natural beauty, and then there are those exceptional places that not only mesmerise but also respect and enhance the environment they’re nestled within. Tentickle is immensely proud to have a close association with the Lake Natron Camp in Tanzania, a breathtaking vista that epitomises the principles of true eco-tourism.

The Harmony of Luxury and Eco-Integrity

Lake Natron Camp is an emblem of eco-driven innovation and luxury, seamlessly blending into the pristine landscapes of northern Tanzania. This unique camp, a harmonious mix of elegance and environmental responsibility, sits majestically at the foot of Oldonyo L’Engai – the holy mountain of the Maasai. The camp offers a perfect blend of warm hospitality, sustainability, and unparalleled experiences that go beyond the ordinary.

Every element within the camp has been designed to ensure minimum impact on the environment. From solar power and eco-friendly waste management to organic food production, Lake Natron Camp is dedicated to supporting the local community and preserving the delicate ecosystem of this region. By choosing eco-tourism, Lake Natron Camp is not only contributing to environmental sustainability but also creating positive changes in the lives of local people.

What Is Eco-Tourism?

Eco-tourism aims to minimise the impact of tourism on the environment while promoting conservation and sustainable practices. It is a form of responsible travel that supports local communities, preserves cultural heritage, and protects natural resources. By choosing eco-tourism, you are not only contributing to environmental sustainability but also creating positive changes in the lives of local people.

In the Heart of Natural Opulence

Six hours away from Arusha, Lake Natron Camp beckons you into a world where the silence is punctuated only by the whispers of the wind, the gentle flow of natural springs, and the distant echoes of Maasai songs. Each of the ten spacious tents, housed under camouflage shade netting, offers a distinct blend of luxury and eco-sensitivity.

Adventures Await

Amidst this tranquil retreat lies a hub for adventurers. Be it embarking on the Great Rift Valley Track, retracing the migratory routes on the Walking in the Footsteps of Man journey, or accepting the challenge to Climb Ol Doinyo Lengai, every path leads to a revelation, an uncharted terrain of self and nature.

It’s an opportunity to unplug from the chaos of daily life and reconnect with your inner self. The camp offers an array of activities that celebrate the natural world – explore the stunning Lake Natron and its flamingo colonies, visit local communities to understand their culture, or simply stargaze at night.

Ecological Sensitivity – A Commitment Honoured

The colours of dawn unveil the mesmerising spectacle of over a million flamingos at Lake Natron, painting the canvas of life with shades of grace, while the Maasai, guardians of this sacred land, enrich the landscape with their vibrant culture. Natural springs also weave through the camp, creating pools of serenity, where the endemic cycles offer a unique, natural pedicure experience.

Lake Natron Camp stands as a testament to an unwavering commitment to ecological preservation. Every aspect, from composting toilets to the use of eco-friendly briquettes, is a step towards a sustainable tomorrow. Here are some of the initiatives undertaken at Lake Natron Camp: 

  • Removable Structures: Every structure, including staff areas, is designed to be fully removable to protect the natural environment.
  • Composting Toilets: Innovative waste management reduces water usage and prevents environmental contamination.
  • Community Engagement: Full-time staff collaborate with local communities to balance conservation and community needs.
  • Chemical Reduction: Rigorous protocols limit chemical introduction to local water sources, preserving their purity.
  • Waste Management: All kitchen waste, especially non-biodegradable, is systematically removed to Arusha for proper disposal.
