Lake Masek Tented Camp

Ndutu, Serengeti

Lake Masek Tented Camp

This small eco-camp has an excellent location overlooking Lake Masek in the Ndutu region, between the Serengeti Plains and the Ngorongoro Conservation area.

This region is excellent for year-round game viewing and is also one of the best places in Tanzania to spot cheetah. Of course, it’s most famous for the wildebeest migration during the months of January to March, when the migratory herds gather in the southern Serengeti and Ndutu to graze before their journey north into the Masai Mara. The grasses here are rich in nutrients encouraging the wildebeest and zebra to linger and graze long enough to give birth to their young and build up strength to continue their journey.

As well as being a wonderful location for viewing the migration between January and March, Lake Masek offers reliably good birding throughout the year. The camp has impressive views of Lake Masek where you may see flocks of flamingo, while the surrounding acacia woodlands are home to a large variety of birds not found in other parts of the Serengeti. As Lake Masek is outside the boundaries of the national park, off-road driving is permitted which adds to the game-viewing experience.


Lake Masek has 20 large tented rooms all built on high wooden platforms with lovely views of the lake and surrounding woodlands. Four of the tents are suitable for families.

Each tent is comfortably furnished with large beds, linen bedding and mosquito nets. The furniture is traditional dark wood complemented by light, airy furnishings. The bathroom has a freestanding bath, flush loo and separate open-air shower. Each tent has power points for charging phones as well as a safe and private covered veranda.
