Lake Masek Tented Camp
Lying just south of the Serengeti National Park, in the north-west corner of Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Masek Tented Camp stands on a slight rise in the scrubby acacia bush overlooking Lake Masek. During the dry season, the vast plains around are very dusty. Then the water here, and in the neighbouring Lake Ndutu, sustains a good population of resident wildlife, especially cheetah. With good rains, typically from December to April, these short-grass plains are transformed into the green calving-grounds for the vast herds of the Serengeti’s wildebeest migration.
Our view of Lake Masek Tented Camp
Lake Masek is a relatively well-priced tented camp with a good balance of design and rustic safari ambience. During the ‘green season’, this is a prime spot for viewing the migration’s vast herds spread across the plains. Out of season, it’s quieter here, but the opportunity to drive off-road makes this area worth considering for wildlife, birding and photography enthusiasts en route to or from the central and northern Serengeti.
