Room types at Ngaro Sero Lake Natron
Each tent has been carefully designed to deal with the extreme habitat that is found here in Lake Natron. All rooms have triple bed facilities (set up as singles or as a double and a single or spare luggage bed) and for families quad beds are possible, each complete with mosquito net. All guest tens have a verandah which is surrounded by netting to ensure that guests can relax on the chez longues without having to worry about insects. In the morning hot drinks are served here with wake up calls. This area is warm year round and so cold showers are provided and running water is readily available. The water source is from nearby springs and has a high soda content - it feels quite soapy to the touch. Separate flasks of clean water are provided for drinking and washing teeth. As the camp strives to the highest ecological principles the toilet systems are composting type and the operation is extremely simple. All waste is removed from the site to a sand trap far away from any water source once the waste has broken down.
Units at Ngaro Sero Lake Natron
All tents are designed to accommodate up to 4 people. The default configuration is a twin or double bed with 1 side bed used as a place to store extra luggage or to arrange clothing or personal items. Each tent has it's own view of the stunning surrounding scenery with vistas of rift valley volcanoes (such as Gelai, Lengai, Shombole, Oldonyo Sambu) and the rift and Lake Natron.
The tents have running water.
All tents currently have composting toilets and these are part of our commitment to leave no trace principles (all waste is removed off site and disposed off properly) and return to natural state principles.
The tents are designed to account for both the dramatic scenery and variable conditions with large screen sides but with closeable flaps in case the wind is strong. There is a screened area at the front of each tent complete with chairs and a table for morning call drinks service to watch sunrise and a chez longue for relaxing shaded from the sun in the day time.
