Mawe Ninga Tented Camp

Mawe Ninga Tented Camp: Our full report

All year

In the west of Tarangire National Park, Mawe Ninga Tented Camp has an impressive position on a high kopje, overlooking the soda lake of Lake Burungi, with Lake Manyara in the far distance. The best vista is across the small central bridge to the dramatic campfire, sited on the edge of a large rounded boulder.

Mawe Ninga's 12 canvas tents are raised on high wooden decks. Some are cantilevered from boulders to lend vertiginous, but spectacular, views from small verandas. The tents are internally divided to create a bedroom and bathroom/dressing area, and facilities are very simple: log beds, a coat stand, small lamps, a small canvas shower and chemical toilet.

There are no resident guides at this camp, so you must visit with your own safari guide.
