Wild and remote Lake Natron lies in the northeast of Tanzania in between the Ngorongoro Highlands and Serengeti plains. Here it is the landscape rather than the animals that is the attraction – the area around the lake inhabited by Maasai is dry, desolate and hauntingly beautiful. Lake Natron is one of the most alkaline lakes in the world, and is home to millions of tiny crustaceans, attracting literally thousands of lesser flamingo’s every year. Lake Natron is therefore one of the most important flamingo breeding grounds on earth.

The trees cover the camp in a cool shade, which is a welcome relief in this dry and hot area. The camp is run by the people of the local Maasai village, offering you a chance to get to know their culture and lifestyle.
Serengeti National Park
The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth, the essential features of climate, vegetation and fauna have barely changed in the past million years. And this is something you can feel when you visit the park. The unique ecosystem has inspired writers, filmakers, photographers and scientists, and attracts over 90.000 visitors each year. It is the great migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous: every October and November over a million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras travel from the northern hills to the southern plains in search for greener land, and then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May and June. So strong is the ancient instinct to move that no drought, gorge or crocodile infested river can hold them back.
