Ngare Sero Lake Natron Camp
Situated close to Lake Natron, Ngare Sero Lake Natron Camp sits on the surrounding grassy flats. (Note that this camp is often simply called 'Lake Natron Camp' but should not be confused with the nearby Lake Natron Tented Camp.) It is a very open environment here, so each tent and the main mess tent are sheltered under a thick camouflage netting/mesh. This allows the light and lovely breeze through, but softens the suns rays and heat dramatically. The camp also sits alongside a natural spring which feeds into a nearby soda lake − a swim in the cool water is also a great way to combat the heat.
Our view of Ngare Sero Lake Natron
Lake Natron Camp is certainly one of the most unusual camps we have ever stayed in. Though rather rudimentary, it is also quite fun. The style is unique and there is a sense of adventure in the design itself. Its simplicity fits the harsh environment; anything lavish might have felt gaudy or inappropriate, nestled in amongst the surrounding Maasai villages. When we last visited in June 2008, we also felt that Lake Natron Camp had a great atmosphere. The team bent over backwards to make sure that we enjoyed our stay. We recommend it as a comfortable, albeit simple, base from which to explore Lake Natron.
